Last week, Google announced it is removing profile images and Google+ circle count from search results to which authorship is assigned. Google said they are doing this to simplify the way authorship is displayed in search results. Now, the authorship layout in the search results will be applied to the Structured Data Testing Tool as well.

Google Structured Data Testing Tool continued to show the old format for a few days after the update. But now, it will match the layout you see in the search results page. Only the author information will be visible along with a clickable author name.
