    Loader Freezes the Entire App for a Second

      I'm working on a slideshow player that loads images using the Loader class after the user clicks a "launch" button, but just before the presentation is displayed. The problem I'm running into is that on that initial load the entire application freezes up for a second.

      I don't mind the load taking a couple seconds. For larger presentations I'd expect that to be the case, but what I'd like to avoid is a complete freeze of the app. This happens regardless of whether I use large (750 kb) or small (7 kb) images. I've also noticed that on the load, my CPU spikes and the mouse stops responding for a moment as well.

      Any recommendations or thought? Is there a better way, maybe a less resource intensive method to load the images or is the Loader class it?
