Remove "No image selected" text from image uploader

  • Hello,

    I need to remove the “No image selected” placeholder from the image uploader. As the text has no useful element around it to target with JS/CSS (just view.hide-if-value p), how can I remove it without also touching the upload acf-button inside the same element?


  • Hi @krishaamer

    Maybe you can use this code:

    function my_acf_admin_footer() {
    	<script type="text/javascript">
            $( document ).ready(function() {
                $(".acf-image-uploader p").each(function(){
                    $(this).replaceWith($(this).html().replace("No image selected", ""));
    add_action('acf/input/admin_footer', 'my_acf_admin_footer');

    I hope this helps.

  • Thanks James, this works perfectly. I hope in the future though ACF will have a template system so we could customize before render. #FeatureRequest.


  • I was facing the same issue and came up with this more robust CSS-based solution which targets the relevant CSS class and will work across possible translations of the “No image selected”-string.

    .hide-if-value :not(a) {
        font-size: 0px;
        color: transparent;

    This selector can optionally be prepended with the .acf-image-uploader or .acf-file-uploader selector in case you want to target these fields specifically.
