Website photo question

Why is there no option to post a file (picture) from your computer's hard drive when writing text in the forums?

When you click on the "insert file" button, it asks only for a URL. Well, lots of pictures are not on a website, but they ARE on a hard drive. Why not a "browse" choice, so we can upload pictures from our hard drives that haven't been uploaded to a site on the internet yet?

Maybe I am missing something. Maybe it's already possible, and I just don't know how.

Can anybody explan this to me, please?

Thanks for any information!!
