The transparency in the PNG loads just fine with GIMP. I don't know
Photoshops PNG abilities.

Ah, I see. Select the picture (your Scribus file didn't contain one
BTW), go to the properties palette and set the background to none.
(see http://tisc.de/tmp/transparencysupport.sla - it exports just fine
as a JPEG)

@developers: Please change the default if this didn't already happen.
IMO an image frame with background color is pretty rare and a very
frequently asked question.
