if you have completed testing a website with a one browser, now you want to test it in other browsers, what things you want to test it in other browsers? as i know you want just to confirm that the all the images are displayed correctly, so no need to retest the functions/performance testing again in different browsers am I right?
I have found that browser react different also....take for instance Netscape 4.x acts quite a bit differently then 6.x and handles things different between the operating systems like Windows vs. MAC OS. (for example it appears that Netscape 6.x on a MAC uses a different asci set the on the PC or other netscape browsers) Also you should check out AOL since there are compression issues and rendering issues.(I have also come across other differences in I.E. also) I would suggest at minimum, checking a major build for the major browsers. We actually check multiple builds on browsers.

Complete testing on all the browsers and their versions is required is it is being tested for the first time. In the successive builds we can run the functionality checklist on all the browsers along with their versions. It again depends on the type of application in question. In these kind of scenarios, automation helps. You can run recording scripts on various browsers.
"thank you for your answers, I will execute all the scenarios in all different browsers plus test the application in MAC as you suggested. thanks"
If you want a really ugly test, try testing it on a MAC that's dialed out to AOL. (Must be dialed out, not set up to use your LAN.) I've seen some odd bugs crop up that way that don't crop up any other ways.
