[scribus] When we open an SLA file, all the image frames are empty. How come the images don't show?

SLA files do not contain the images, only links to the image files.
Therefore, if you move the SLA file, its relationship to the images
may change.

For sharing everything, and moving them about, use File > Collect for
Output, which will create a directory, which contains your SLA, the
images, and if you wish, necessary font files (which might be needed
by someone else you share the file with).
