It sounds like you are using the wrong tool. Scribus, I mean. However,
your description of what you have done and what you are trying to do
(possibly two different things) is pretty hard to understand.

If you are trying to lay out a simple montage of images to convert to
bitmap, use Inkscape, not Scribus. Else, please describe the desired
outcome a little more clearly.
