Thinking about it again, that advice is probably bullshit. When loaded in
Gimp, the image isn't in JPG any more, so any save will have a slight
reduction in quality. So the best advice would be to use tiff originals, and
if that's not possible, convert to tiff or png before editing. Then import
as tiff or png into Scribus and choose the appropiate compression method in
PDF export.
