You can build an A4 album but the pictures will always be side by side. To create what you need you will have to use code.

To make the A4 Portrait

Insert Photo Album and just add ONE image. Set the page to A4 Portrait

Delete the slide with the image (yes really)

Now EDIT Photo Album and add the real images.

If you need code to rearrange images please answer:

Are all the images the same size and orientation and if so what orientation. It wqill be pretty tricky if you have mixed portrait and landscape images.
Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
IF, as JSRWilson says above, all your images are LANDSCAPE orientation:
Design tab―> Page Setup ―> select Slides sized for A4Slides PortraitProtraitAll you do now is add a new BLANK page and add your images, 2 per page.2 per page
You can try that but I don't think it will work with Photo Albums.

You're right, JSRWilson. It won't work with photo albums. And it will distort the images.
Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
JSRWilson is correct, you cannot accomplish this in directly Album mode! Even with the Portrait orientation, the images are side by side!
If the images are all landscape it's fairly easy to have vba code to reposition the images though.

Basic code which will need adapting if the layout is more complex:

Sub fixAlbum()
Dim intSl As Integer
Dim sngH As Single
For intSl = 2 To ActivePresentation.Slides.Count
With ActivePresentation.Slides(intSl).Shapes(1)
.Width = ActivePresentation.PageSetup.SlideWidth - 200
.Left = 100
.Top = 100
sngH = .Height
End With
With ActivePresentation.Slides(intSl).Shapes(2)
.Width = ActivePresentation.PageSetup.SlideWidth - 200
.Left = 100
.Top = 125 + sngH
End With
End Sub

Here's what it looks like
