Your problem is kinda odd.
I tried this on my machine (amd 1400, +/- 325 mb ram, hp dj 3820 using hpijs)
with 30 pictures, 4 per page 
The printwizard is finished within a few minutes and the output postscript 
file is 9,5 mb..

I did a second try, with 32 large images (average about 1 mb or more per 
photo), took about 15 sec per page in the printwizard, and the outputfile is 
9.7 MB

What digikam version do you use?
