As he needs a solution more now than later, the option to extract the image from the .sla is more immediate solution. Another option would be to export as a pdf, and use a pdf tool to extract the image(s). Not sure how promising a solution it would be, as the full image in scribus i bet is masked by the frame in the pdf. but would be work looking into, and may suit his needs.
fun aside, it's hard to say, without seeing the .sla file, but the most likely cause is a display error that will not survive a restart of scribus and will not make its way into the pdf (did you try to produce a pdf and see if it contains the red line?)

Hello, I'm new to Scribus and already frustrated. The basics: Creating a page with a text frame on top of an image frame. I removed the lines around the text frame but there is a persistent red line on the right and bottom of the image frame that I can't remove - despite searching and trying pretty much all of the options within Scribus and the forum. This is not a line on the background image; I checked in photoshop. So, what am I, the amateur, doing wrong, or what am I not doing right? I am using Scribus to create a game book, including images and borders, tables and indexes etc... If there is a better, absolutely free, application for this, please feel free to redirect me. Currently my other option has been clumsily using Word to produce the same effect. Thank you for your time, parodocs
you can edit the contour around an image to get the text to flow how you want, it is somewhat clunky and takes some patience and practice select the image frame and tape the F2 then go to the Shapes tab
