How they look on-screen should not be a big concern.  Or did you mean
that they look pixelated when printed?  In general (and this is by no
means unique to Scribus, as far as I know), lower resolution images are
created internally for the on-screen view while editing but the full
image will be used when you create a PDF, etc.  So, are you just seeing
this on the screen or in printed files?
