Its doable in ms paint and doesn't take much effort just create a blank image bigger than the 2 originals and paste the first one in and then the second one next to it then cut/paste the combined image to another blank pic and done

any free image editor can do this.

you would basically create a new blank image the appropriate size. open both the old images, select all, copy, and paste in to the new image.

paint.net is a great http://www.getpaint.net/

or if you would rather work online http://www.sumopaint.com/app/

or post the images and someone will do it for you.

Sumopaint is nice and free and easy, not seen that before.

IrfanView is free and you can use it to put images side by side or above and below each other.

PhotoScape is great for basic image editing.

As you can see, 'combine' is an option on the main menu.

It's perfectly doable in Word, PowerPoint or the LibreOffice equivalents

Use something like Paint.Net (http://www.getpaint.net/) create a new blank image that is big enough to "house" both images. For example if the two images are 600x400 pixels in size create an image that is at least 1200x400 pixels if you want them side by side or 600x800 for one above the other.

Keep this base image open and open the first of your image files. Use the "Select All" option on the Edit menu to select the entire image then the "Copy" option to copy it to the clipboard. Then click on your base image and select "Paste" to insert a copy into the base image. You should be able to position the image where you want it.

Then repeat for the second image. You can then save the newly created image and that should be it. You can do other things like resize the two source images so they are the same size before copying and pasting them into the new image.

Paint.Net is fairly easy to get your head round so just play with it for a bit. One good thing is that all the editing you do can be undone and provided you never save a modified image over the top of the original you won't muck anything up permanently as you play.

OT but I can't believe Flagpole has been banned again... yet various FMs get away with saying all sorts on the GD/advice sections and even have multiple accounts and nothing happens to them!
