The following example uploads a File named image.png into Folder 123456. uploadBase64FileData indicates that the code should create a new File if a File with the same name exists and should not re-size the Image.

$api = new Api($url, 'YOURAPIKEY');
$file_details = array(
    'name' => 'image.png',
    'data' => base64_encode($file_contents)
$session_details = $api->invokeMethod('uploadBase64FileData', $file_details , 123456, 'increment', false, false);
