You can click on the photo and that sometimes gives an alternative, However the pic and background are those that are added whne first sync ed an even deleting the contact on Jolla does not force an update when the contact re-syncs.

Unfortunately, this is correct, currently. It's a known issue. We are looking at improving our synchronisation mechanisms in the future to better detect changes to avatars, pictures and covers, but for now the only way you can force it to reload is to manually delete the images folders (avatars+Facebook) under the privileged Contacts directory on device.
