Hmm, that is a rather broad question, it would be difficult to answer straight away. You mostly "learn as you go", trying out all the different tools and seeing what they do.
I know this has been mentioned earlier, either in this thread or another, but there is a good introductory guide over at TTC. Here is the link.
Also, Step 2 of my MLP Art Tutorial is all about the different tools available in GIMP, or at least those that I use for a lot of projects. It is mostly just a summary, but may be of some help to you.

To crop something like that use the lasso tool.

I have a question about how to crop a fairy. I searched for it on the forms, but I couldn't find the answer. (I use gimp.) I remember you're supposed to use the fuzzy select tool, but I forget the rest. Here is what I've done so far, but it doesn't work.
(1) I have my fairy (with a white background) (2) I use the fuzzy select tool on threshold 11.0 (3) click on the picture (4) copy then paste on a new layer (5) and the new picture has the outline of a fairy (6) but it still has the white background around it. I hope that wasn't too confusing.
If someone could post the steps for cropping out a fairy, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

There's a helpful guide in this sub-forum that explains the basics of animating with GIMP. I learnt how to create GIFs using this guide, so it should be sufficient, but ask away if you have any specific questions.

When using the Fuzzy Select Tool, click anywhere on the white background and press the Delete key to remove it (so that would be your step #3). Then you can simply erase the logo in the corner with your mouse. If you don't want to mess up, you can duplicate the layer before you start deleting things.
The other alternative is to use the Free Select Tool (the lasso) and trace a line all around the edges to have a cleaner finish.

Is there a way to make a whole color transparent in gimp? If there is that would help me with editing as a whole. I have made transparent things, but being able to not have to use the scissors would make it a lot cleaner and smoother.

Nevermind, I figured it out. I would also like to know how you make GIFs with gimp.

Molly posted a wonderful tutorial on making GIFs in GIMP here. I made a start on making GIFs using her tutorial so it's definitely helpful. Let us know if you'll have any other questions!

Another way is you can select the white background and use the eraser tool (select by color so you don't accidentally erase your fairy) and then erase the other things after you select the region. Before doing this make sure to have a transparent layer merged under the fairy image, otherwise this method won't work.
