Have you tried Extras > Manage Images?

If you have a number of images, this could be rather tedious.

You might check out this script:


and especially look at the modification at the bottom of the page for 
only extracting image pathnames. For 1.3.3.x versions of Scribus, this 
script should be included as Extract Text. I think it should also work 
on 1.3.6 and so on.
