Just a suggestion.
I have established authorship with Google and now my author pic comes up in search results on Google. However, I think my author pic doesn't really help "sell" anything. I noticed that some recipes I was looking at had thumbnail pics drawn from the actual article in search results, which looked far more attractive - see pic below.
I found these instructions on Google about how to do it, and wondered if Hubpages would be able to assist in implementing this in any way? I do think it would sell our hubs more than a one-size-fits-all author pic!

As @vespawoolf mentioned, you can check how we send/package a specific Hub using Google snippet tool.
If the image shows in the tool, but not in Google SERPs, then it is being sent to Google properly, but they have chosen to display the information in a different way.
Suzanne, I am experiencing the same issue. I wrote Hub team and according to Google's rich snippet tool, my recipe Hubs should be showing on Google search results with a food photo, not a head shot. So at thus point it may be a problem with Google. I agree that the head shot doesn't sell anything. I hope we can work this out eventually!

Is this a bug or am I tying with Briggs for a featured snippet? It seems odd. The picture can be clicked and leads to DenGarden
