Is your question how to do a file upload?  PHP file_get_contents() is nowhere in that design.  This teaching example shows the essential moving parts.

No, I just want an example of using file_get_contents with a multipart post .. Anotherwords, I need an example of uploading an image using file_get_contents. When I submit it via PHP, it should mimic the headers which I've posted above with exception of the image contents

it is  a tutorial site for php upload file with POST at w3schools
http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_file_upload.asp

Review it  and then continue the question

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

Ray PaseurCommented:
Please see http://php.net/manual/en/function.file-get-contents.php

This function's not used to upload images.  It's used to make a GET-method request for a file (or similar resource) and read the file into a PHP variable.

Can you please tell us a little more about the objective in plain business (non-technical) terms?  If we can recognize the design pattern we can probably lead you to a solution.

Ok, let me clarify. I need an answer like this but with the correct parameters to upload an image from say a file called image.jpeg stored locally.

            $context_options = array (
                        'http' => array (
                              'method' => 'POST',
                              'header'=> "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n"
                                    . "Content-Length: " . strlen($content) . "\r\n"
                                    . "Cookie: " . $cookies."\r\n",
                              'content' => $content
                              )
                        );

            $context = stream_context_create($context_options);            

            echo file_get_contents($get, false, $context);

I've been using file_get_contents for everything including POST and GET requests... I just want an example as the binary content of the image is tricky to me

Image file format, it should be this
 'header'=> "Content-type: image/jpeg"
                                    . "Content-Length: " . strlen($content) . "\r\n"
                                    . "Cookie: " . $cookies."\r\n", 'content' => $content
                              )
