I have a one user that if she opens a small jpg ( 71 KB ) in Photo Editor v3.0.2.3   She is getting a error when trying to print.  
" Insufficient memory to complete operation "

To reproduce the error the user does the following:

File > Print
Checks off " Fit to Page "
Then clicks OK

She is checking off Fit to page because the picture is extremly small.  She can email the pic to some else and they can print it out the same way she was trying to with no problem.

does it help to reboot the machine? [i know sounds very rough] but it could have to do with a swap file thats clogged or not enough free space is available on disk

especially if the picure is having high color depth and/or resolution

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

What kind of printer is she using? Is it an older printer or a newer printer? Despite it being a small JPG file, perhaps if she's using an older printer, when it is set to fit to page, that may use more memory than the printer has available.

I've had issues printing images to my old laser printer before like this.
