Uploading Images in the Link Manager

In /wordpress/wp-admin/link-add.php there is the possibility to add an image to a link, but it belongs to the category “Advanced” and is really a little too advanced for an average user, which needs first to upload an image somehow and only then to add the URL of the image to a link.

Maybe there exists a plugin which simplifies adding an image to a link?
