I don't know if there is a simpler way to do this, but in GIMP I would
open the first image, then use the canvas tool (Image --> Canvas Size)
to double the canvas size, and move the original image to the left.
Then copy in the second image and drag it to the right. This is
essentially what I had to do with a batch of very old 4x5 negatives and
transparencies with an epson scanner that could only do a max size of 2
1/4 by 2 3/4 " at a time. I used GIMP to piece them together pixel to
pixel and it worked marvelously.
If you have command line access to ImageMagick/convert, this is easy:
% convert image1.jpg image2.jpg +append -quality 85 combined_images.jpg
i.e. if I understand the need....
