We introduce and theoretically investigate a scheme for teleportation of two-frequency entangled optical images in which the quantum channel is formed by four-frequency multimode states, generated in a single nonlinear photonic crystal by coupled parametric interactions. We study in detail the performance of the scheme. Namely, we evaluate its fidelity and the spatial-frequency spectra of the quadrature components characterizing the deterioration of the entanglement in the initial images due to the teleportation process. We analyze the influence of the spatial bandwidth of entanglement on the fidelity of teleportation. We investigate the performance of the scheme both in the near and the far diffraction field. Our analysis suggests that bandwidth matching of the quantum channel field with that of the images is generally necessary for high-quality teleportation. We show that entangled images are more fragile and more difficult to teleport than their coherent counterparts.
