You're leaving out some details here, encapsulated by:

    // send the image to server side script

In your case you have to:

1. Extract the encapsulated data
2. Create an HTML form
3. Submit the data

(Steps two and three could be done using a hypothetical, not yet

In the <input>/web forms based case, you have to

1. Submit the form
