Attached is my scribalbuma4.py script, which loads all images from a 
directory (ie, you can't choose particular images, but you can choose 
particular format(s)) and makes a new Scribus document on A4. As 
written, it lays them out in two rows of four, for eight images per 
page. You can modify the placement as you see fit. Depending on your 
system's resources, it will choke when you have eaten up RAM and swap, 
but on mine, it takes hundreds to do that; Scribus uses your memory 
pretty liberally.

An alternative to what you're suggesting you want would be to make a 
template of some sort, perhaps of just the images, and save that.
