Right click on the image frame and you will get a menu of
options.  Here are some choices:
Resize image to frame.
Resize frame to image.

You can also click on "Properties" at the bottom of the menu and
get another screen. At the top of that screen is a bar that says
"X,Y,Z". When clicked you get boxes for 
X pos
Y pos
These also may appear by default. 

You can modify these values as needed. The first two set the
location of the upper left corner of the graphic frame.

See the Scribus Tutorial, the "Scribus Manual" and Cedric Gemy's
book "Scribus 1.3.5 Beginner's Guide".
