If we do that, can we make sure we keep a row of pixels all around the image
so we don’t end up with a white gap between the frame and the image. This
happens... and is sometimes hard to see on proofs !
In any event, it would be great to have such a script.
Just a question : can’t this be made a feature into Scribus ?
