may i ask you, where you get the feeling that scribus would ignore the density?

i have not tested it with imagemagick and scribus 1.3.9...

but with gimp i can set a resolution and it is correctly used in scribus 1.4RC* (the current development version)...

can you please test it with scribus 1.4 and if still happens, please fill a bug report?
