I am looking to remove the custom_image_header from the wp_head. I would like to use this in a more manual way throughout my theme. I understand the general approach for this is to include CSS in the head but I would like to keep all of the CSS for the theme outside of the head.

Any ideas?

Thank in advance,

I was able to remove this by using remove_action('wp_head', 'header_uri');

Where header_uri is displayed in the above function you must use the same function name you have used to initialize the function in add_custom_image_header() within your functions.php file.

. example: add_custom_image_header('header_uri', 'admin_header_style');
