    well just to help you out, this is probably definitely the best way to do it but it will work.

    -open one of the pictures in GIMP

    -go to File>Open As Layers and select the other two pictures

    -go to Image>Canvas Size and make the canvas a lot bigger, it doesn't have to be exact, just big enough to fit the three pictures

    -select the different layers one at a time and move them to where you want.

    -finally go to Image>Fit Canvas to Layers

    you might see some checkerboard designs still.  This is ok just be sure to save the image as a .PNG as opposed to a .JPG

    hope it works
