I tried researching for a way to disable a redirect link of my Tumblr image posts, but can't seem to find one.

This is my problem, when I 'Image Post', the image post, if you click on it in the main page will redirect the readers to the post url, which is something like this : http://xxxx.tumblr.com/post/297525140792343/imagepost (just a sample).

What I want to do is that to disable this action, or, I don't want the image to be clickable into that url. How do I do this?

if you want to remove redirect link for Image posts (disable previewing images bigger) than search for this in your HTML tumblr code

{LinkOpenTag}<img src="{PhotoURL-500}" alt="{Permalink}">{LinkCloseTag}

and replace it with this

<img src="{PhotoURL-500}" alt="{Permalink}">

it worked perfectly fine for me!

Depends on your Tumblr theme. You'll need to go in your photo block and change/remove the url to {Permalink}

My theme was a little different, but I figured that all you need to do is search for (Cmnd/Cntrl F) these : {LinkOpenTag} and {LinkCloseTag} and remove them.
