I try to explain in plain English, see if it helps:
- proximity: create a map of distance to specific raster values
- near black: convert nearly black or white pixels to exactly black (or white)
- warp: reproject a map to a different coordinate system
- grid: interpolate a raster from values at sample points
- clip: cut out a portion of a larger raster and save it as a new file.

All the best.
