You can use the "File->Open As Layers" command to open multiple into
one image as separate layers.
Second, I wrote a Script-fu a while back which adds a command
("Filters->Map->Mosaicize") which will arrange all of the layers in
grid. The script automatically determines the number of rows and
colors (attempting to keep the resulting image as square as possible)
and will center each layer within a "cell" sized just large enough to
ensure that no layers overlap.
None of the original layers are modified, they are just moved around.
A background layer (filled with gray) is created which will provide
"framing" around any layers which are smaller than the layer's cell.
The script can be downloaded from
