[Scribus] File size using photos

This is really a newbie question but I would really like to know:
Does Scribus only use the part of a photo/graphic that is viewable in the graphic 
frame or does the whole photo/graphic get put into the end file size regardless of 
how much has been cropped out.
Is that clear? If not - let's say I have a 2.5Mb .jpg that I put into a Scribus 
document. I then crop the .jpg as I only want a section of the photo in the 
finished document - is there still 2.5Mb of .jpg in the document?

The reason I'm asking is that I want to make a small booklet available on my 
website for download but obviously want to keep the file size down to something 
reasonable (there will probably be several graphics in the finished document).
