    Answer below is good. Also just a suggestion - it is not best practice to modify base Sitecore templates. A future update could possibly break your solution. Best Regards! Dec 17, 2018 at 17:34

Go to /sitecore/system/Settings/Validation Rules/Field Types/Image item and remove the Image Has Alt Text from the Validation Rules section where you don't want to run this validator. What you removed is the validator on the Image items in the media library.
