For some things XNView is good (and free). It's mainly for viewing and converting image file types, but does basic editing too.  The quality of more subtle adjustments isn't great, though.  Picasa is free too and does basic editing. 

As a point of comparison, my old version of Coral Photo-Paint uses 22 MB of ram for a 3kx2k photo, but Gimp uses 63 MB (before you start doing anything).

- That's a good reminder for everyone.  "It would be nice" if Gimp could manage reasonable settings on its own.
