[scribus] using Gimp to resize photographs is very poor design

How about a very simple image editor that does not have all the
features of GIMP or CinePaint, but will do stuff like lossless
rotations and "good quality" image resizing or adjustment of an images
internal DPI metadata?

i.e. Does anyone have any recommendations on a simple but good image
editor that can take care of common tasks quickly? I know I could use
ImageMagick or NetPBM but a GUI is nice sometimes.

thanks, seeya
