If the electrons absorb energy from photons and are emitted, what will happen to the initial positions of the electrons?

What we know from quantum mechanics is: “When an electron absorbs energy, it jumps to a higher orbital. An electron in an excited state can release energy and ‘fall’ to a lower state.” But experiment shows absorption is not so easy and photon has shape and photons are some 4 meters long. And the probability that a single Rubidium atom would absorb a single photon of either type was just over 4%.
