  2. In the left-side navigation pane, select Snapshots & Images > Images .

  3. Select a region.

  4. Select the image you want to delete.

    The image type must be Custom Image.


  5. Click Delete.

Can I delete a specified custom image from which an ECS instance is created?

Yes, you can Force Delete the image. However, you cannot re-initialize the system disk of the instance after the custom image is deleted.
