How to make a lazy load of images in ListView in Android

I plan to use a ListView in Android to load a set of images from a website. Is there a way to make a lazy load of images in ListView?

    Use Universal Image Loader open source library.

    From the project page:

    This project aims to provide a reusable instrument for asynchronous image loading, caching and displaying. It is originally based on Fedor Vlasov's project and has been vastly refactored and improved since then.


    • Multithread image loading
    • Possibility of wide tuning ImageLoader's configuration (thread executors, downloader, decoder, memory and disc cache, display image options, and others)
    • Possibility of image caching in memory and/or on device's file system (or SD card)
    • Possibility to "listen" loading process
    • Possibility to customize every display image call with separated options
    • Widget support
    • Android 2.0+ support

    I want to add images in my listview.
    Custom adpater
    LayoutInflater inflater=activity.getLayoutInflater();

        if(convertView == null){
            convertView=inflater.inflate(R.layout.colmn_row, null);
            txtFirst=(TextView) convertView.findViewById(;
            txtSecond=(TextView) convertView.findViewById(;
            txtThird=(TextView) convertView.findViewById(;
            txtFourth=(TextView) convertView.findViewById(;
        HashMap<String, String> map=list.get(position);
        return convertView;

    How can i implement an adapter so that i can add images to it? I have added the adapter through android multicolumn listview tutorial. Also i want to do lazy loading of images in listview. Please tell me how can i do that?
    Thanks in advance.
