Using parallel programming to make bulk image processing faster

.NET 4.0 introduced the concept of parallel programming. In parallel programming, the concept of threading is taken to the next level. A multi-threaded application generally targets a single processor core. Parallel programming targets processors with multiple cores. What it essentially does is distribute the logic of your application across multiple cores of your processors. This distribution of logic makes use of all the available processor power to make the execution of the application faster. One of the areas where parallelization provides massive gains in execution speed is image processing. In this recipe, we will use parallel programming to make bulk image processing tasks ...
