And if you've installed gimp but Scribus doesn't know where it is, it will behave as if it were not installed. If that's your situation, go to File => Preferences (in Scribus, naturally), find the External Tools page (toward the bottom in the list at left). Make sure Image Processing Tool has the full path to the gimp executable. Something like: C:/Program Files/GIMP-2.0/bin/gimp-2.6.exe. If it's still not working after that, then come back here for more ideas.
