It helps if you tell us what version of Scribus you're using.
Secondly, please submit emails in plain text, not HTML.

In 1.5.x, there is now getImageScale(), which returns a tuple of the x,y values.
Similarly, there is now getImageOffset() which returns a tuple of the x,y values for that.

This is yet another reason to advance to 1.5.x Scribus.
