not bad... but in that case i would maybe insert the single images by 
drag and drop from an image viewer:
- create icons for all your images in a separated folder (without 
remaning them)
- create an empty folder where you will place the images you insert into 
- create a scribus document with enough pages
- choose an icon, move it to the target folder and, then drag and drop 
the image to the scribus document.

you may carefully choose the defaults for creating the image frame (it's 
in the document settings) to improve your workflow.
