Please check the HTML definition which will tell you that an image can only be referenced via link.
So you can only save the image in JPEG, GIF or PNG and create a HTML file to reference the image.

that is correct, can help me out for delphi create the html file with reference to image. the image can be save in tem directory for reference. I need the source code that create the html with link in it from delphi.
This is rather easy. The basic HTML elements are only a few.
An empty valid page is:

<title>title content is optional</title>

Now lets add an image link
<img border="0" src="Images/myimage.jpg"/>
Of course the link has to be placed in the body area.
The border attribute disables any default link border a browser may add on displaying the image.
The src attribute is an URL which means that the forward slash should be used always. In this case it is a relative link which means it is relative to the HTML file.
Avoid absolute pathes because they make the file OS dependent (only Windows knows the concept of drive letters).
