okay, so I use an automated tool (maybe ghostscript) to convert each
page in a PDF file to tiff 300dpi 1-bit BW images named by their page

However in GIMP, are there ways to automatically open all tiff files
in the directory at once?  Then all I need to do for each image is to
erase the logo, save and close the image.
