I need some art program advice!

Okay, I want to install a good photoshop alternative on the house computer.  (We lost photoshop after it crashed back in February) and started searching for choices.  I'm stuck between GIMP and a newer one called artweaver.  

This is only for my parents and whatever program I choose, has to be very easy for them to use. Another requirement of mine, is that the program be light weight.  I don't want to install an art editing program that's going to suck up the memory.  

And accept all the standard image formats (jpg, psd, gif, png). 

Any advice or suggestions would be helpful.
