Stitching images together
I've recently installed GIMP. It is a bit daunting for me at this stage but I'm getting there. My main interest is enhancing photos.

Is there a way to stitch two images together? I can't find any reference to this.

Also, is there an index type search facility to find information on a specific topic? The manual is good but a key word search facility would be very useful. Again I can't find one..

RE: Stitching images together
Depends what you call "stitching images together". For panoramas, or making a large image from partial scans, there are specialized tools much more efficient than Gimp that will take care of the little things like image distortion, uneven tilt, uneven exposure... The most popular one among the free tools is called Hugin:

If you want to add a foreign element in an existing image then Gimp is the tool, but there are many ways to do it, some more pertinent that others depending on the images available. We have to know more.

Metaphor of the day: Gimp is a mechanic's workshop, with plenty of tools. Somewhere in the help system, you'll find the operating instructions for the tools. But you won't find Mechanics 101 and there is no tool called "Fix the car". On the other hand, there is an intercom system called "GimpForums" where you can call the folks in the other shops and ask questions. There is also a big board in the back called "Google" where you'll find how people solved their problems.
