Inserting photos in database


I have a Container field that I want to have a thumbnail photo displayed in. If I select Insert > Picture, there is an option to "Store only a reference to the file". I have read that using this option will keep the database file smaller. 

If I just drag and drop a jpeg into the container, is that actually embedding the source photo into the database, which could result in a very large database file if there are lots of images.  Does the size of the jpeg (kb/mb) make any difference?
