The rollout of the new Google search with author photos removed just hit me. There is a slight difference between logged out and personalized search.
Logged Out of Google
In non-personalized search, as predicted, only a byline shows. It appears right under the site URL and in line with the beginning of the meta description.
I'm seeing a lot of bylines for certain queries, more than there were author photos in those queries earlier today. That is in line with what said in yesterday's Webmaster Central Hangout, that for now all one needs to get a byline is a correct Authorship connection on the page that Google can parse. No more differentiation of "better" authors as there was when you could have a photo or a byline.
The big news for personalized (logged in to your Google account) search is that _author photos may still show for Google+ posts by people you have in your circles. See the example for below. Every other authorship result now looks just like those in the logged out search example.
This means another huge advantage for those who are active on Google+ and who have built a large following. You will stand out even more in relevant searches for people who are in your network, especially since there will be no other author photos crowding out yours!
