I wanted to remove the images from a WordPress post to give me more control of how I could layout the design for the front page of a website. After doing some messing around and failing, I finally found a great post by Chris Shuld which had an amazing little piece of code that solved my problem. I just had to make a few modifications to it.

$content = get_the_content();
$postOutput = preg_replace('/<img[^>]+./','', $content);
echo $postOutput;
