Selecting specific pixels
I'm making a mixtape and want to take a ninth of nine album covers and put them together. How can I select a ninth of the images to copy into a new one? One would be the top left, the next top middle, etc. Thanks!

I placed guides by percent and that made it easy, thanks!

While I was knocking this video together, ofnuts answered.

There are several ways, including setting up layers with layer masks, but using guides is the easiest for a one-off.

I used to do this 14 years ago for VCD's, assembling frames from the video.

If you search for Gimp +photo montage you get some hits, tend to a bit on the wordy side.

This has the advantage of brevity. 4 mins.
edit: having a tidy up - everyone finished with this ...going..going..gone
