Where I've seen this the A4 image in question came from a scanner and 
had been adjusted in various ways in Gimp.

Gimp had no problem reopening it to produce a lower resolution version 
of the file.

I'm not sure if it a simple memory issue though. I got the impression 
that it was more to do with the size or resolution of this particular 
image than lack of memory for the process as a whole. Having shrunk the 
resolution of this image, I was able to add loads of smaller images 
subsequently, which in total would have added far more memory requirement.
