Default Inserting Graphics

Can I insert a graphic from my hard drive? The function here seems to expect a URL from online, not my hard drive.

The graphic need to be published on a web server and linked from there if it is to be included in page text. You can, however, upload and append an image from your computer to the message which will then appear as a thumbnail link at the bottom of that message. Look for "Manage Attachments" below the "Advanced" editor window.

I never use the "advanced" editor (I'm sure you know why) but I can uplaod attachments just fine.

BTW, I much prefer attachments to (larger) embedded images - makes the text better to read and sometimes the thubmnail is enough information already.
