The motivated one can learn an inifinte amount of
information about the Gimp: it's got its own list-based
language, and you can definitely do a script similar to that
(I remember writing on that would automatically prompt for a
filename, save the current image at 640x480 and a thumbnail
at 60x40 (or whatever)). Honestly, it's more effort that
it's worth if all you want to do is resize.

I'd suggest having a look at convert(1) from imagemagick,
which does all that through a command line interface (my
favourite :) ).

Don't know endeavour, but for image browsing I find the
embarrassingly-named pornview to be quite good. All it's
missing IMO is the ability to save images after rotating
them (it's a browsing-only program)
