No, since this is the default behaviour for all images of content elements
"image" and "image w/text". The reason is, that you might use the same image
with different elements. To make sure that the image will always be
available for each element even if the original is deleted, TYPO3 works with
copies - just like a real live editor would do, when he goes to the archive
to get some nice pictures. The original stays in the archive while the
working copies are used with the layout.
If you don't want to do it this way, you might want to take a look at the
There you can work with references instead of copies.
