Putting two images side by side
When I drag an image into gimp it appears on the new untitled background. And when I drag a second image in, it seems to replace the first image. instead I'd like the images to be side by side. How can i do this?
Thanks.

RE: Putting two images side by side
The second image doesn't replace the first, it is but as a second layer over it.

Wht happens is that when you drag the first, Gimp creates a "canvas" for the image, that is the size of that dragged picture. So if you want to see the pictures side by side, you have to resize the canvas (Image>Canvas size...). Make it big enough for the two images, and then with the Move tool you can drag the top one to the side.
