In this post, Jesse Liberty demonstrates how the LowProfileImageLoader class helps the Windows Phone 7 UI thread stay responsive by loading images in the background.

In this first post, I'll be demonstrating the use of the LowProfileImageLoader class. (A future post will explore the DeferredLoadListBox class which is also part of the sample download - but for now I don't want to get into what that's all about.) LowProfileImageLoader is meant to address a very specific scenario: loading lots of images from the web at the same time. This turns out to be more common than you might expect - just think about all the social media scenarios where every user has a little picture alongside their content.
