Have you tried adding a function which frees the picture memory to
your API? That would mean that you could sustain a higher picture
allocation/deallocation rate independently of the garbage collector
implementation. For such large and comparatively rare objects, the
additional burden on the programmer does not seem that large.
Obviously, it depends a lot on your environment if this is feasible.
