Hi Gracia,

Select the picture frame, go to Properties>Shape and check the 
Runaround option.
As of right now, Scribus doesn't allow you to determine the amount of 
space between the pic and the text. No problem.

One easy workaround is to add an extra text or picture frame 
underneath the picture frame that really holds the picture and offset 
it by the amount you need. Of course, don't forget to set *this* 
frame to runaround...

To determine what object is on top, use the arrows at the bottom of 
Properties>X, Y, Z. The stack order is user definable. :)
