It ain't nessecarily that high. I'm am not quite sure what the current 
KDE-libraries do, but atleast more and more image-handling libraries 
internally use 4-byte pro pixel in order to store not only RGB info, but 
also an alpha-channel. Doing so is required for example to handle 
png-images properly.

4*18 million is 72 million, it's atleast in the same ballpark as the 
memory-consumption you are seeing.
