[Scribus] beginner question - importing

Dragging the mouse shows me the image.  I'd now like to shrink it
proportionally to a proper size within the Scribus document. Must I
"shrink" the original imported image (before it's imported) or can I use
the original large image and proportionally resize after the large image
is imported into Scribus?

It seems you created a very small image frame. You have to click and
drag the mouse while holding the button to specify the size of the image
