combining two pictures (vertically and horizontally)
I've asked this question before. But I am a complete beginner, the answer given is too brief. I don't understand.

I've got 4 different photos of similar dimension. I want to combine them perfectly by by edge. Two of them at the top and two of them at the bottom, I hope you get what I mean.

I know it could be very simple, start a new image, assign the new dimension with simple calculation, width x2 height x2, then put and align them together with move tool.

But it would be hard to make a perfect alignment on the edge. I don't want that. Especially I've got quite some number of such projects, it's stupid.

I know how to get to Align tool. I know distribute, but. Would anyone tell me the step from the very beginning?? Please don't skip a lot .. I am complete newbie

Thanks!!!!

RE: combining two pictures (vertically and horizontally)
It is very easy to butt images together. Set some guides either drag them from the rulers or use the menu
Image -> Guides -> New guide by percent

Make sure that in the view menu snap to guides is ticked.

If you are up-to-date with Gimp 2.8.14 then drag-n-drop insingle window mode is working
otherwise, copy and paste as new layers

Move those layers with the move tool and they snap to the guides.
