Import an image in the way office-programs do

From Scribus Wiki

This article is part of the Scripts series.

Some people have complained that they cannot import an image to scribus in the way they do it with the office-suites. In other words, they simply want to open a file and then the image should be placed on the page ready to be scaled and placed.

This script does this job.

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-


Diese Skript importiert ein Bild und setzt es auf die akutelle Seite.
Der Bildrahmen wird dem Bild angepasst und in den nicht-proportionalen Modus
gesetzt, das heisst, beliebige Verzerrungen sind moeglich.

Um das Bild proportional zu vergroessern, die STRG-Taste beim Bearbeiten druecken.

Tested with scribus
