Meta Properties for :image always defaults to 'photos/' folder

I am not sure if this is a Publisher issue or not but I dont know where else to ask.

FB and Twitter cannot pull the image for the OGP.  no matter what I do in the templates the default folder is 'photos/' in the meta tags for image.  I only become noticeable when I select Custom Thumbnail in Publisher.  My custom thumbnail folder is 'custom_thumbnails/' so as a workaround I replace the 'photos/' with 'custom_thumbnails/' in the template_index.php, mobile.php, and single.php.  It then works just fine, but I always forget to go back and edit those lines in the template whenever I have to update/change anything in the lr web module.  So am I missing where I need to change anything to have it default to the correct folder when using custom thumbnails.  I realize that a fix is not likely so does this work correctly in Backlight before I upgrade.

Social media stuff should all work correctly in Backlight 2. If you find something amiss, let us know. I was testing it all pretty thoroughly while actively working on those aspects of the code, though, and it's been pretty reliable in my experience since then.
