[Scribus] Images in PDF output

I've created a few documents in Scribus and am very happy with it 
overall.  Sure, it takes a bit of getting used to but that's true with 
any sophisticated piece of software.  My question has to do with image 
quality in pdf documents created by scribus.  What happens is this: I 
have images that I've edited (either in GIMP on Linux or Photoshop on 
Windows).  The images look go both on-screen and when printed directly 
from GIMP or Photoshop.  Next, I create a document in scribus and place 
the photograph in that document.  I create a PDF document from that 
scribus document and take it to be printed.  The photograph, however, is 
seriously washed out.  It appears washed out in the pdf when viewed 
on-screen, also.

I'm not sure if this happens during the inclusion of the image into the 
scribus document or at the point where the PDF is created.  I haven't 
found any way to control the images other than going back into the image 
in GIMP and darkening them (much darker than seems reasonable).  Is that 
what I should be doing or is there something else going on that I can 
control?  Thanks for any advice you can provide.
