Impress: Change multiple copies of same image? / Import image by reference?

When making presentation slides with Libreoffice Impress, I often find myself re-using an image multiple times on different pages. If at some point I want to modify the image source, I then have to manually replace each instance of the image with the new file. I find this absurd.

With LaTeX for example, images are imported and if you change the source file, every time that file was used, the new one will appear instead when you recompile (obviously, since no copies are made).

Is there any way to have a similar functionality with Libreoffice?
