Yes, you need to register the Images, but you don't need to upload them. If
you set the SOURCE attribute of the image template [1], OpenNebula creates
the Image resource without copying the files.

Actually you don't even need to create a template file, I believe this
command should be enough [2]:
$ oneimage create --name filename --source filepath --datastore default
