[Scribus] How to make ``photo book'' easily? + some "bug-reports"

   I want to make-up book with picture on every page. All pictures are 
same sizzle & position.
   I've tried to add "image frame" on master page, and link it with 
different image files on every book paged, but it didn't work. I can not 
have different content on different page :(
   Now I added frame to scrap book and copy it on every page, but it is 
ugly solution: it will be hard to change frame or position of every 
image in once, if I need to :(
   Even worse, here are TWO formats, really: landscape & portrait. It 
can be solved with two master pages, if master page works. But it doesn't.
   Is here any good solution for this problem?

   Other encountered problems are:

  (1) When I have guides on page & "snap to guides" is turned on, first 
click in guide, when create frame, ALWAYS is displaced right-top from 
guide for ~2-3pt. Even if I have HUGE magnification and click EXACTLY in 
guide. After that I need to drag frame to snap it in place, and as here 
"proportional resize" is turned on by default, it is not easy task 
(second corned should be snapped too, of course).

  (2) Properties dialog (F2 button) is too small (have many scrollers) 
and can not be resized at all.

   I use on WinXP
