As Christoph suggested, PNG is probably the way to go.

It sounds like you may not have scaled the frame contents to the frame.
Like in other DTP apps this is not the default, as Scribus assumes you
want to preserve the physical size and resolution embedded in the source
image. If you want the image scaled to fit the frame, you need to tell
Scribus so.
