I would like to execute some actions in Gimp and then apply this actions again to a new version of the file.

Is it possible ?

Edit: I would like to crop (and center the rest), resize. Maybe change background too.

What kind of actions are you talking about? Simple resizing or color swap, or is it drawing shapes and things like that?Please give an example. –  terdon Dec 6 '12 at 16:10

There are two things you could try. The first is GIMP scripting or GIMP BATCH. These are ways of running GIMP in BATCH mode and scripting actions to be performed on a set of images.

The second way, which is much easier and, in your case, probably sufficient is the wonderful ImageMagick suite. You can probably do everything you want using the convert tool of that suite. The following are some relevant options, you can see the whole list using man convert or by visiting this page.

NAME

      crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

-trim                trim image edges
