In v7, it is not possible to remove a picture. In fact, even before you had selected a picture, there was a default picture (hosted on the server filesystem). Eg: a face for contacts, or a strike-through camera for products. The only way for the user to remove the picture is to select another one.

It would probably be useful to have a button, next to the edit button, to reset the picture to the default one, but it is not available at this time from the interface.

yes, I'd say this should be an option. It seems to me like something that was forgotten to add but as you there is no possibility in V7 (which implies there had been a possibility earlier, so ... was that removed on purpose (which seems to make no sense)?

Even if that makes no sense, I confirm this feature was removed on purpose.

What was the purpose behind, may I know? I dont think there was something good about removing feature.

"It would probably be useful to have a button" IT IS INDISPENSABLE !

workaround for the time being: create your own default picture (or just a white plane) to use for unpictured items ... probably you can even find the original default pic somewhere in the guts of OpenERP if you need to.

I use a workaround like Gunnar suggested. In Windows Vista/7/8.1 I right click on the default image and save it. Then I can replace an unwanted picture with the default image .

If your brave you can delete the picture in the relevant database - I use phppgadmin.

But be warned your playing with the testicles of dragons!

I'm with Fabrice - a button is required!

I hope this expression is open source, because I'm going to make damn sure I use it every time I can :)

This is not a way to remove. All who want to remove picture are not developers!

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Odoo announces in that as of the 6th of August in release candidate 1 of version 8 that you can now edit or delete pictures of products, partners or employees.

Even people from OpenERP think it's at least a strange idea to have removed it. So, give us this delete button back...
