But where are they stored then? I pushed the .sla to Dropbox and copied 
it into another folder on my office computer, and the pictures are still 

On my laptop they existed - in that form - only as unstored working 
copies in the Gimp before, were copied into the clipboard and then 
inserted into the Scribus document.
