reactjs – Is there a way to force next.js to let me use a regular image tag?

I have an Avatar component with an <img> tag. It’s working fine in development mode, but when I try to build the project then Next.js throws the following error:

Failed to compile.

./components/Avatar.js
59:9  Error: Do not use <img>. Use Image from 'next/image' instead. See https://nextjs.org/docs/messages/no-img-element.  @next/next/no-img-element

Is there a way to force next.js to let me use the regular <img> tag in production mode?
