Looking for a way to disable the "Edit Image" option. I would still like to be able to edit the description, alt, etc. But remove the Edit image button or disable that image editor. Thanks,

I figured it out. Just put this in your functions.php file

add_action('admin_head-media-upload-popup', 'remove_edit_image_button'); // for the pop up media box
add_action('admin_head', 'remove_edit_image_button'); // for the media page

function remove_edit_image_button()
    .A1B1 p .button
