Have you tried ImageMagick ?


http://www.imagemagick.org/script/composite.php

If you know the location of where  you want them to join.
There are a bunch of tools - you can crop and resize.

I did a search on stitching and found this quick guide:

identify image.xxx    will give you your size
img02.jpg JPEG 1536x1024 1536x1024+0+0 DirectClass 8-bit 203.852kb

create a white bkgd canvas (make it png) and double the width or more.
convert -size 3064x1024 xc:white canvas.png

Add the left side to the canvas
composite img02.jpg canvas.png withleft.png

Add the right side with offset of the width of the first image
composite -geometry +1532+0 img03.jpg withleft.png newfile.jpg

newfile.jpg JPEG 3064x1024 3064x1024+0+0 DirectClass 8-bit 1.05193mb

There is another tool that a quick editor/viewer.
    display file.xxx

Click on the image for a menu to check things out.
Its not as visually easy but if you know the points, it can be automated.
    the geometry offsets can help position the image.
    then use crop to clean up the edges

Have fun. :)
