[webkit-help] Question about memory allocation for Image loading in Webkit

I would need some help in understanding memory allocation for image loading?
1. When webkit loads an image, how does it allocate memory? How does it know
how much it needs for each image?
2. Who 'owns' the memory for the un-decoded image? and who owns the memory
for the decoded image? When does each memory get free ?
3. Does image loading/decoding are done in parallel or in sequential?

Thank you.
