How to remove the label from an image field in Drupal 7

When you add an image field to a content type, that field will display a label by default. For instance, if you named the field ‘image’ then just above the picture you upload will be the word ‘IMAGE’. This may not be something you want to display on your pages. Drupal does have a way to turn off the field setting, or hide it, so that it does not display above the image. You can hide the label for an image field in Drupal 7 by following the steps below.
