pngs are an awesome achievement in technology. you are missing out on 95% of internet cool but blocking them.

With Opera, you can block some elements on a website with the Block Content feature, but that would be pretty laborious, because it would have to be performed on every website that you visit. I've never used it, so I'm not certain if doing this once is enough, or if it has to be repeated on each page or not. Of course, you could block all images, internet-wide, or page by page by toggling it off and on, but that not very pleasant either.

It has been a long time since I used any kind of proxy, but I think that some may be able to do what you want. The last proxy that I used was Proxomitron, which is no longer being supported or developed, but I think that it may still be available for download.

I suspect that to get what you really want, that you need to look at proxies.

EDIT: I don't know if there is any way to tailor it for PNGs, but since bandwidth usage is a factor in general, this may be of some interest to you:

EDIT: I just installed Proxomitron and quickly scanned it's features, but saw no way to target only .PNGs, but it might still be of interest to you:
