I have an image column in a list and I would like to add a browse button in the EditForm.aspx or NewForm.aspx so that user can browse for an image in their local computer. I have set up a picture library to host the images uploaded by users. Currently, the column edit fields only give me the option to put a URL for the image. Is there anyway to add the browse button in

Haven't used either one myself, so I cannot vouch for either one, but the third-party route is probably your best option.
