GIMP currently does not allow you to specify resolution when
non-interactively loading PDFs.

Yes, you could do this with a automation tool such as AutoIt (windows)
or xdotool (Linux) and a bit of Python scripting.
However, using ImageMagick instead (and not using GIMP at all for this
task, except the final editing) in conjunction with Python scriptiing
might be a less painful way to do this.
