How to put parts of an image back together in GIMP?

Question How to put parts of an image back together in GIMP?
When trying to scan magazine photos or pictures, they're often too big to fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 scanner. So inevitably they have to be scanned in pieces. How does one go about putting the pieces back together in GIMP so you have one complete, seamless image again?

RE: How to put parts of an image back together in GIMP?
Your best bet isn't Gimp but a panorama tool such as Hugin (which is free, too). It has an option to indicate that images come from a flatbed scanner.

Otherwise, with Gimp, but this assumes that there are no geometry issues (tilt/size). you would load the various images as layers in a canvas big enough to contain the final image and move things around. Using a semi-transparent mode may make things easier. For very accurate positioning, you can temporarily use "difference" mode: the layers are subtracted from each other, so a perfect match leads to complete black. Minute shifts make the edges show up as in a wire frame drawing.
