Rotate + translate image to match another image
Is there a way in GIMP (or in any of it's plugins) to do that? I have two images, they are shifted and rotated somehow. I'd like to define manually 2 points on each image and let gimp perform necessary operations so that those two images match. So far I'm doing it manually with layers but it is extremely slow and clumsy. Any tip would be appreciated.

RE: Rotate + translate image to match another image
No plugin I know of to do that (but I may be mistaken). However you can improve things by

1) doing the translation first so that two points match
2) in the rotate tool, setting the rotation center (drag the circle-cross) to these two matched points
3) rotating the image (the rotation center won't move, by definition)

This is exactly what I'm doing, however it requires a lot of image handling and I'd like to speed thinks up a little. If GIMP and any of it's plugin can make it, do you know of any other free software that could do the job?
