Automator & Terminal

I had over 1200 screenshots, which I wanted to turn into 600 bookpages. 2 screenshots per page. They fitted perfectly to each other. After doing some searches over the net, it appeared that there aren't many tools around that will simply paste 2 images into 1, but eventually I found ImageMagick. This is a Terminal-based app which perfectly does the trick, but I needed it to perfom it 600 times in a row. So I set up this 'watch-me-do' Automator-workflow combined with TextEdit. In TextEdit, I made file with 600 command-lines (for Terminal) and then set Automator to switch between the 2 apps, each time cutting a line from TextEdit and pasting it into Terminal. It did the trick, but it seemed awfully elaborate to me. There's got to be an easier way, I hope. I'm not much of a script-kiddie and I don't know my way around Terminal very well, but any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
