As far as I understand Scribus cannot import PDF's effectively. I just open
the file with GIMP and save it as a JPEG and insert that into an Image
Frame. Rememeber though, if you do use GIMP to do this you also need to make
a couple installations in addition to the main GIMP installation
(Ghostscript, ect.)
