MS Paint to Gimp Capabilities List
Normal users don't have days to learn simple picture manipulation processes. I'd like a list of corollaries in gimp for everything MS Paint can do. I searched and found no such resource.

Off the top of my head Ctrl+E instantly changes the height and width attributes. I could find no such way to change the total (non-gray size) of a pre-made layer.

Since GIMP is much more powerful than MSPaint, I assume this list will be easy for those familiar with the program to compile for me. Much appreciated

RE: MS Paint to Gimp Capabilities List
I agree, that would be great.

I still use paint for those simple things because I don't know how to in Gimp.

Here's a start:


Select -> Rectangle Select Tool
Resize/Skew -> Scale Tool and Shear Tool

To answer you question, I think

Image Attributes -> Crop Tool

I would hope there isn't a way to just crop the bottom and right like paint does. It's arbitrary.
