Hi one way to learn the gimp is to go onto youtube and there are loads of tutorials there on the gimp and what it can do. Just do a search on it there.

Most often, you will want to adjust the brightness/contrast/saturation if the exposure is a little off, or the light was a bit flat. This will give a more vivid look to the final pic. Cropping out extraneous parts can also improve photos.
Those are probably the most often used features of any photo editor, and all that is needed for a lot.

If you want to post the picture to the forums here, or other places which have size and space restrictions, then yes, but when you do, do it to a copy, or save it to a different folder, with a different name, so you don't overwrite the original.
For viewing on a computer monitor or TV, remember that even full HD at 1920x1080, is only about 2 megapixels. For printing, a 4"x6" picture at very good resolution, takes only about 3 megapixels. Larger print sizes need more.
