How to merge 2 images together without using photoshop?


I want to know how people merge 2 images together, but most people tell me to use photoshop, which I'd rather not shell money out for.  Is there any other way to merge 2 images together?

EDIT- so apparently people are thinking I want to merge 2 images together into some mumbo jumbo sh*t.  No.  THIS IS WHAT I WANT:

Well, I assume you'd like to make a Panoramic image, right?!?

I use Autostitch (http://cvlab.epfl.ch/~brown/autostitch/autostitch.html). It's free/demoware and easy as pie.

I tried and it says it costs 3 dollars.
I downloaded it right before I posted this and there was no word about 3$.

You downloaded the Windows demo, did you?!
DJ Radio (author)  Obi-Wahn3 years ago
No, it was an iPhone app.
Good answer. I use it alot. It's great for makeing panoramic images. And it's super easy to use. And FREE!
Here is a crappy video. I dont know what happened but i hope you can still see what is going on. I hope this is what your looking for. You will have to un-compress it.

Microsoft ICE, give it a search in Google. A wonderful little program!

Not what I am looking for. I want something that does this:

Use GIMP, it's free. After you download it, here's how to do it:
  • Go to file, then open up one of the images you want to use.
  • Go to file, and click "open as layers". Choose the next picture you want.
  • Look at the right sub-window, there should be two pictures now. One should be called "background". Click on the picture that doesn't say "background". Then, change the opacity (it's the slider above the picture list).
And there you have it! Here's an example picture. Hopefully this is what you were asking.

The effect you have demonstrated is not what I want. Something like this is what I want:

Tell me how to merge 2 images with GIMP because I can't figure it out for the life of me.
ifd you click open as layers with both images you may need to erase parts so it show through

There are a host of free "photoshop" type programs. Paint_dot_net and gimp are two that comes to mind. I prefer Paint.Net
