One possibility you have is to set up a Web server (restrict access by IP or
choose an obscure port number) and mount it so that it is visible to all
users who edit the pages. Then, all you need to do is drag and drop the
file/s to the server and link to it. Alternatively you can set up each
machine to act as a Web server.
A Wiki may be a good way of editing the data at ease, especially when some
informal intranet in hand. Even though I use PHPWiki, people seem to
recommend MediaWiki, so I suggest you look into it. I suppose it has some
rich integration of graphics too, but I am not entirely sure. Any Open
Source blogging tool which I am aware us suffers from this issue of
cumbersome image management.
Hope it helps,
