Transfer image from local computer to node-red host computer

I have node-red hosted on a raspberry pi. I would like to able to move images from my laptop or desktop to the rpi via node-red. I've googled a fair bit but not found any solution. Is it possible, and if so how?

Are you using the node red dashboard on the laptop? If so then you need to search for
