You can't add the images to the MOBI once its made. You have to add the images to the source file or some other intermediate format.

What format is the "some text" that your are converting?

If its simple ASCII text then you can't add images to it. You would need to convert it to some other format that supports images (e.g. HTML, ePub, ...) and then add the images. You would then convert this intermediate format to MOBI.
