In FF type about:cache into the address bar and under heading Disk Cache Device the Cache Directory is where they are stored
In IE click Tools, Internet Options, General Tab.  Under Browsing History click Settings.
In Chrome enter chrome://cache/ into the address bar

Generally, images are downloaded from the Internet site each time you visit. For IE9, some inages are stored here: C:\Users\rgb192\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files, where rgb192 is your Windows 7 user name...
For Chrome if you want the actual directory then use
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache
...but it won't show you anything useful!
But you can use

Similarly for FF there is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cacheviewer-continued/

Which make getting files in the cache easy.
> In IE click Tools, Internet Options, General Tab.  Under Browsing History click Settings.

Once you get to that point you need to manually add \Content.IE5 to the end of the path in Explorer and hit Enter in order to expose the actual cache folders, otherwise all you will see are cookies and scripts if you go to the path you see there.

Or, e.g. copy and paste
%temp%\..\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
to the address bar in Windows Explorer, hit Enter, and it should display the cache folders for IE9. Once they are displayed, then you can browse them one by one... but they won't display unless you manually enter the path, even with hidden and system files shown.
