If you look at this wiki page:
you can get a sense of how changing some settings in Scribus or
manipulating the images can variably reduce file size of the PDF.
Especially with a large document containing many images, you should be
using the lowest DPI resolution that makes sense for your purpose.
Typically, 150 to 300 DPI is good enough. Using a tiny part of a very
large image will load this entire image into the PDF, so cropping before
you use the image can be a huge savings.
