There are several plugins around - I use a (modified) version of 
ImageManager plugin, and have an icon added to the TinyMce editor, so 
when writing a post clicking the icon you can insert or upload pictures, 
organise in folders, and then insert pictures into your post in a number 
of ways (thumbnail with/without link, picture, size control etc...)
(I haven't checked out WP2.7 yet, but think it does not offer all these 
things as standard!)
