Easy:
Send an HTTPRequest (POST) with the bytes of the PNG image in the body. In the client - use the Image.createImage(byte[])  method to create your image.

Thank you for your response.
The problem is: I  can not control the client. I want to send the image in any moble phone based on the phone number.

No, you cannot "push" images to handsets (unless you have a client running on it).
I would recomment you to send an SMS with a URL of the message.
The user then clicks on the url to download the image.
