Images can only be in the .png format in J2ME and the size is to be less.

Most the answers you seek are in the J2ME MID Profile Specification available from Sun (http://java.sun.com/j2me/docs/)

However, I will point out that what you described can be easily handled by most microbrowsers built into most J2ME phones. Put a picture on a server and just use an http request. For example, open this link on your phone:


Your browser should display the picture. If it's too large for your display (that example shouldn't be) you'd be able to pan up/down/left/right around the image. This is just a capability built-in to most browsers. There's nothing special about the image or the server.
