    Hi Flavio,

    You should configure the Image manager to use the EditorDialogs folder and modify the EditorDialogs/ImageManager.ascx control. You should copy the EditorDialogs folder to the root of your web application from the installation and set the following line in the codebehind:

    imageManager.Parameters["ExternalDialogsPath"] = "~/EditorDialogs/"; 

    as it is shown in this KB article. Once you do that you will be able to hide the Image Editor button by setting Visible="False" to the following control:

    <telerik:RadToolBarButton Text="Image Editor" Visible="false" ToolTip="Image Editor" Value="ImageEditor" Enabled="false" CssClass="icnImageEditor" />

    To hide the "New folder" button put the following class in the EditorDialogs/ImageManager.ascx control

        <style type="text/css">
        .icnNewFolder { display:none !important; }

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Hi Rumen,

    In this scenario, how can I detect if the ImageManager is called as stand-alone or from an Editor toolbar.

    I have both situations on one page so I want to detect which control has called the ImageManager.
    I want to use this to disable some Tabs in case it is a stand-alone call.

    Hope you can help.

    I can detect in _initImageItem: function from which object the ImageManager is being opened with:
            var dialogOpener = Telerik.Web.UI.Dialogs.CommonDialogScript.get_windowReference().toString(); 
            if (dialogOpener.indexOf('StandAlone',0)!=-1) { 
            else { 
    And I use next opener

    <telerik:dialogopener runat="server" id="StandAlone"></telerik:dialogopener>

    In this way I can switch off the desired tabs.
