Hi Gregor,
I you are using windows, you can use Photoshop or some similar software to
convert the color mode to CMYK, and reimport the photos on Scribus.
I don`t know if exists any free software option for Windows as exists under
Linux, with Krita that allows convert to cmyk.
good luck!

Thanks and best regards, Gregor
