[scribus] using Gimp to resize photographs is very poor design

You can and should resize images in Scribus. i.e. Scribus does provide
that feature. Shrinking it in the GIMP will make it look terrible[1],
so don' t do that.

Try shrinking the image bounding box to the desired size and then
choosing "fit image to frame" or whatever the option is called.

[1] This is about desired dpi and actual number of pixels.
