How do I unpack unused or unwanted textures from a Blender file?

After checking the “automatically pack into .blend” in the files tab, it saves all textures you use into the that blend file.

How do I unpack/remove a texture?

Under the image category (tab) in the Image Editor sidebar you will see a unpack button, next to the image path.

If you don’t want that image saved/packed you shift click the x and re-save/pack.

I’ve never used auto-packing so didn’t know there was an option. Just read the manual and found more detail. You probably need to disable auto-packing.
