There also are some extensions to create a toolbar button for this, in case you need to do it often. For example:

  • Image Block - "Image Block adds a toggle button that conditionally blocks/allows loading of images on webpages."
  • QuickJava - adds buttons for turning on and off: images, animated images, JavaScript, Flash, Java... a lot of stuff that may or may not sound interesting to you
