[Scribus] Image frame doesn't make any sense to me

As far as I (a beginner who just needs to get work done) can tell, image
frame is utterly useless in Scribus.  The image frame should adjust to the
exact dimensions of the image you're placing. At the very least there should
be an option to have the picture frame work in that manner. I just stopped
to try and figure out the whole image frame thing and how it works with the
properties dialog and no matter what I did, it would not insert the image at
the image's actual size.  

There's no reason whatsoever (why I would) even have a resizable image frame
for bitmap graphics as they're just going to pixelate and look awful if you
try to resize them..  The bitmap graphic should be created to the size that
is needed outside of Scribus, unless it's a vector graphic.  I may not be a
DTP guru, however, I know you're not supposed do a lot of resizing of bitmap
graphics which the image frame makes you do..
