You can reduce the size by changing the size of the image frame, then 
right click and choose "Fit image to frame". 

You can use Gimp separately from Scribus to size the image, and then 
import it.

You can follow the instructions on page 96 of "Scribus, The Official 
manual" and set up the linkage to Gimp. The manual is pretty much a 
must have for Scribus users. Try
File->Preferences->External Tools

Finally you can follow the similar directions posted here earlier on 
the same topic.  This would require that you join the mailing list, 
which would be to your benefit in any case.
