If you are using your custom module for displaying system configuration then change in your system.xml. Replace image with file in your <frontend_type>file</frontend_type> field.

This is best done with CSS. Find the ID of the <tr> tag your system > configuration field is in and then add the following CSS to either your own custom stylesheet or a general stylesheet

#row_custom_field img { display: none; }
