Gmail - How to insert photo not stored on Google?

In Gmail, it is easy to insert a photo from Google drive.  However, I do not store my photos there (I transfer all photos to my own hard drive, where they are sorted by subject [45K of them, and counting]).

Is there any way to insert photos from other sources?

I am not sure what you are asking. If you can access the drive, you should be able to insert a photo by clicking on the paperclip icon. Am I missing something?

Paperclip is for attachments.  There is another tool for photos, so they are immediately visible.

Just figured it out.  When I land in Google Photos, there is an 'Upload' tab.

Insert Photo (the picture icon)=>

Upload (from anywhere)=>

select Inline.
