Hi Robert,

the first thing you have to do is to create a frame for the picture. On 
the toolbar, you can see buttons for different kinds of frames (text, 
image). Draw an image frame, right click on the new frame , import the 
image and adjust it to the frame (or the frame to the image). Scribus is 
a frame based programme. You have to to create frames for (almost) 
everything you want to put on a page.
