How to open 2 images as 2 layers?
Basically what I need to do is capture a video shot, and place a play button on top of it. I thought the simplest way would be to just open each image as a separate layer but couldn't find a way to do that.

Eventually I made the screen shot the background image of an html page, and the play button the foreground image. Then I was able to position them just the way I wanted and capture a screen shot, then trim and edit in Gimp.

Is there an easier way? I'm going to be doing this often.

Take your screenshot and paste it into GIMP, then assuming you have your play button saved, then go File>Open As Layers, then find your play button and you should be good to go

Incredible. I didn't look under file, was expecting it to be in the other dialogues.

Thank you.
