If you load a GIF image, you likely have a paletted image. Make sure to change it to RGB first with: Image → Mode → RGB. Changing colors (including resize operations) won't work very well with palettes because Gimp limits its selection of colors to the colors defined in the palette. I suggest rotating Hue in Colors → Hue-Saturation. Given an initial image ...

For something small that can open, resize and save both IrfanView (windows) and xnView (cross platform) work well and if I remember rightly both have a batch processing mode which can resize and apply filters to the output images.

You should use the fill-paragraph command, normally bound to meta-q. (You can use ESC q if your keyboard doesn't have a meta key.) Paragraph filling only makes sense in free text modes or within comments in programming language modes. Programming language modes are usually setup around the TAB key to properly indent lines; line breaks are inserted ...

How about GIMP? However, if size matters, Photofiltre would be the way to go. You can hardly ask for more in 2 megabytes.

VLC also lets you add (or subtract) subtitle delay so you can sync them up while viewing. Ctrl-H and Ctrl-J shift the delay by 50ms in either direction. SRT files are basic text files, so once you've found an offset that looks right in VLC, use perl or sed (or your favorite scripting language) to add that offset to all the timecodes in the file. (Or try ...

I've used Windows Live Movie Maker for a while, and am 99.99% sure that it doesn't provide the ability to crop frames in a movie. VirtualDub (here) I've heard is a decent free video editor that can be used to crop videos (e.g. to remove those black bars and to rotate frames).

The way 'around' it is to open multiple copies of Excel, one per worksheet. This is really annoying, but there is no other way.

Browse to the excel program ( "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft ...

In that instance, I'd try transferring files out and editing them on another computer, then transfer them back. If you have ssh, you should have scp (I hope), so you should be able to push files in and out. If not, you can also look for ftp to transfer files in and out. If not, then I think your best option is to try and make use of cat, grep, sed, echo, ...

"It Depends." You'll probably need a couple things: First of all, the text can't have been rasterized. If that's the case, then all bets are off. Second, the entire font must have been embedded. If the font was subsetted (which is most often the case) then you may not have the required glyphs. Finally, you'd probably want to limit the size of the ...

With normal usage a SSD nowadays survives about as long as a hard drive. Or so vendors tell us.

And scratch disks aren't that different from normal temporary file usage or the page file for example. Both ...
