Whenever you are thinking that making an EPS or a bitmap of a Scribus 
page so you can then apply some kind of operations to it, then import 
back into Scribus, you're out on a limb and sawing the side of the 
branch toward the tree.

There are so many things which are better done natively in Scribus. The 
export capabilities of Scribus, except for PDF, are not designed for 
high-quality results. I think you will find that retracing your steps in 
Scribus and redoing things is better than these sorts of end-game fixes.
