-Open the bigger picture in Paint.net
-Size it down to make it same size as the second picture use: Image>Resize "Check the Maintain aspect ratio box"
-Open Image>Canvas Size, double up the Width and Anchor Right "uncheck here the Maintain aspect ratio box"
-Import the other picture, Layers>Import From File "by default the program will Align the second picture to the left"
2-If they are in different aspects then do this:
-Open the one with the bigger height
-Size it down so that the height is same as the second picture
-Open Canvas Size, Anchor Right, increase the width by adding the width of the second picture
-Import the second picture

The combined image looks great, probably much too big to post here though (it's around 8 mb's). They were scans of two drawings of mine that I needed to combine, it's artwork for a calendar. They images were different aspect ratios also so thanks for the additional instructions, yellowman.
I wouldn't call it simple since I had never used paint.exe before, but once I was able to understand what you were doing it went smoothly. I really like this program, nice tools and much easier to learn than the first one I tried.
Another thing I learned: Gimp Sucks! It crashed every time I tried to import the second image. Much harder to navigate and learn also, IMO.
Anyway, thanks again!
