I think you are getting things wrong here.

First, the graphic does not have to ba on a separate layer, it's the LEVEL
that has to be above the text frame. Thus "bring to top" is what's needed
if the graphic frame is not already on top, but if the image frame was
created after the text frame it is usually already above the text frame.

Second, if you don't want to use the contour line you don't have to edit
it. The default is (if I recall correct) to use the image frame shape. If
you DO want to use the contour line, it's obvious you will have to edit it.
Scribus can not know the shape of the image.

So all that has to be done is:

1. Move the image fram one top of the text frame.
2. Select "Text flow around frame->Use frame shape" for the image frame.

Note also that of course you can have text flow around other frames than
image frames.
