If your screen captures and other illustrations don't fit neatly into the column (or page) width on the new page size, you *might* have to re-do some or all of them or they might end up blurry if reduced to fit.

You might find that page breaks need a lot of tweaking to avoid big gaps at the bottom of some pages when large illustrations move to the next page. Lead-in sentences for lists may become separated from their lists if you haven't always tagged the lead-in sentences as "keep with next". Other stuff that should stay together may get separated. How many things go awry depends on the original and final page designs and the way you've defined your styles.
