I need the following combined options, to browse and choose images from previous uploads (or) upload new image from hard drive. Currently I configured with default upload widget(file->Image), so I can choose image from hard drive only, but I don't want to upload the same(duplicate) image again and also it will save lot of space. I want to avoid same image upload, Is any module available with both options ?

Try FileField Sources module

FileField Sources is an extension to the FileField module. The FileField module lets you upload files from your computer through a CCK field. The FileField Sources module expands on this ability by allowing you to select new or existing files through additional means, including:

  1. Re-use files by an auto-complete textfield
  2. Attach server-side files uploaded via FTP
  3. Transfer files from a remote server (cURL required)
  4. Paste a file directly from the clipboard (Drupal 7 only)
  5. Select existing files through the IMCE file browser

enter image description here the first one is what youre looking for.
