As long as your files aren't progressive JPEGs, you can use them in Scribus 
without any hassles, provided the resolution is sufficient.

Also, I suggest you split up your project into parts. 200 pages in a single 
file is currently out of the scope of Scribus capabilities, at least if you 
want to work with reasonable speed.
