I don't see any difference in the behavior of read-file-name when DIR is
an absolute vs. relative path.  If I type RET at the prompt, both of
these forms return DIR:

(read-file-name "Image File: " "images")
(read-file-name "Image File: " "/images")

P.S. You probably want to use "images/" as DIR anyway -- see
