Image Objects that you create will not be automatic disposed. You have to call the dispose method for every image object you have created. I think you have misunderstand memory management in SWT. SWT uses smal java wrapper objects which will be collected by the GC. But this small Objects have big native objects in the back and this objects will not be touched by GC. So you have to use dispose to free this ressources.
