[Scribus] Feature Request: Making it easier to add graphics

On the Right-click menu for a picture frame, there is an item "Get 
Picture ...". Could I request a new item "Paste Picture Path"

Why is this? Well if I run DigiKam in Linux, and Right-Click > Copy on a 
thumbnail, the pasted contents of the clipboard are something like:


(this is obviously a specific path on my system)

Now perhaps if this were another program, the paste may have been:


or someone using the windows version may be

C:\My Pictures\2006\01\07\r0012645.jpg or even file:///c:/My 

But what I ask is that if an attempt is made to paste and from the text 
on the clipboard, a valid graphic file can be located, then that graphic 
will populate that picture frame. It would make it easier for users to 
drop in graphics from other cataloguing programs.
