Lightweight Photoshop/Picasa alternatives? Main need is photo filters/effects.

Hello everyone! Recently, a family member asked me "can I get Photoshop?" I use Photoshop quite a bit, and so I inquired what exactly she needed it for. It turned out she had been using Picasa, and enjoyed using the photo filters and effects. She wanted something similar, that gave her more options.
So I'm thinking Photoshop would be overkill. Adding to this is the fact that she is using a relatively underpowered netbook (A Dell Mini 10 running Windows XP).
So essentially, all I really need is a photo editing program that:
* Will run on a netbook
* Includes lots of photo filters and effects
* Is cheap or free
Suggestions very much appreciated!
