I know you said you wanted to avoid scripting but depending upon what
you're trying to do, it can be super simple:

  for f in *tga; do convert $f $(basename $f '.tga').jpg; done

'convert' is from the imagemagick suite.  As I'm sure you've picked up from
reading this list, these tools are powerful and fairly easy to use.  You can crop
rotate, resize, all with a simple command line.

AFAIK, there's no way to automate Gimp without delving into Gimp's
batch image scripting stuff.
