remove hyperlink from image in Writer

Assume that you have inserted an image into a Writer document, and that you then select the image and insert a hyperlink. That works as expected. Now assume that you want to remove that hyperlink. How do you do that? The "Clear Direct Formatting" option is not offered. If, within Writer, you edit the hyperlink so that all its fields are empty, then within Writer the hyperlink appears to be gone. But if you then "Export as PDF" the document, the hyperlink is still active in the PDF. Because of the deletion of the hyperlink text, the link points to a meaningless location (the directory containing the "odt" file), but it remains an active link. How do you cause the hyperlink to be truly gone?
