If you look at this wiki page:


you can get a sense of how changing some settings in Scribus or 
manipulating the images can variably reduce file size of the PDF.

Especially with a large document containing many images, you should be 
using the lowest DPI resolution that makes sense for your purpose. 
Typically, 150 to 300 DPI is good enough. Using a tiny part of a very 
large image will load this entire image into the PDF, so cropping before 
you use the image can be a huge savings.
