My initial impulse would be to use GhostScript to render the PDF output
of Scribus to an image. For example,

gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -dSAFER -sDEVICE=jpeg -dTextAlphaBits=4 \
   -dGraphicsAlphaBits=2 -dJPEGQ=75 input.pdf output.jpeg

You can also create PNG files with GhostScript, but I've been less than
thrilled with the quality it produces. It does TIFF files, too.

Of course, I could easily have missed a simpler way of doing things...
