three image styles defined: thumb, medium and large. By uploading an image, its thumb/medium/large copies are not generated. . each styled copy of image is generated only when specific style is asked to be viewed.

I want to do something after styled copy is generated. For example, I want to upload medium size of image to my other server with my API copyToMyServer().

How may I do so? Couldn't find hook for this case.

I believe this is what you are looking for. http://happypixels.com/blog/triggering-creation-imagecache-derivatives-programmatically

Also see the trigger module. http://drupal.org/documentation/modules/trigger

You can add your desired action to trigged.
