Only a few things. In general:
1) shrink an image from 1024x786 down to 200x150.
2) save as gif or jpg.
3) crop an image.
4) copy a piece from one image and paste it into another.
Those were the simple ones. Here are the advanced:
5) print an image across many pages as a poster; with crop marks for alignment would be best. My wife uses large paper patterns for her work, but we use small digital images to prepare them.
6) histogram, color-balancing, contrast-balancing, fading, enhancing etc for photo retouching. We use Paintshop Pro in Windows for this. GIMP is going to be a challenge for both of us, it has a different setup from any program I've ever used. I'm versant with layers et al techniques, but I can't wrap my head around how to do simple things in GIMP (yet, as my time is focused on other things).
I'll add more if I remember anything later.
