Uploading Avatar Pics

This might be simple and I'm just missing it, but how do you upload a local picture for your profile to use as your avatar?
I see the URL link and the "Flags", but no where to upload pictures I have here on my box...

Link off-site:
Enter the URL of the location containing the avatar image you wish to link to

Read the first line, you need to link to an image somewhere else.

You can upload any pics you want from your drive, but you need to upload them to some image hosting site.
