Hey there, Gaston.  (I aplogize for not spelling your name quite
right, but I'm not sure how to produce that o with my keyboard.)

Basically, once a file is uploaded, it exists in the files directory -
so if you know the name, you can fairly easily use it (as in an image
tag) anywhere you like.

As for associating that file with another node, that I'm not as
familiar with off of the top of my head.

(Indeed, for re-using image files, I've tended to use an image node,
which consists of a simple node with an imagefield, and then using
nodereference to associate it with various nodes.)
