Bash command line to open two images in GIMP layers
I would like to use the Bash command line to open two images into GIMP, each image on a layer. The code below opens the two images into separate GIMP windows.

>> gimp image1.jpg image2.jpg

How can I open the two images into one GIMP window and two layers?

For now, you could settle for

File > Open As layers...
-"shift" or "ctrl" + left=-click to select two or more files in the same folder.
-Click open

Thanks for the reply iForStyle007.

But the solution must be using Bash command because I'm writing a script to convert an image from tiff to jpg, then open a reference image and the jpg image in GIMP onto layers. I then do the rest manually.
