I always recommend to use KDE system monitor to measure memory usage. It
happens very easy to get completely wrong numbers and I believe the developers
really took up the problem and found a good solution. (talking about Linux)
A picture of todays' cameras (12-15 Mpx) typically takes 100 - 150 MB of
memory to load at 16bit, half that for 8bit.
digikam on Linux is at about 300-400 MB at normal usage. There is an image
cache in memory the size of which depends on available RAM; for 4GB, it is 200
