DescriptionThe ability to add precise amounts of white space between the frame border and the picture itself, similar to the shape properties for a text box (distance from top, bottom, left, right).
TagsNo tags attached.

Well, we have the Contour line, but specifying shape distances for anything but rectangular is a difficult task, although possible. See what you think of Contour lines.

Actually, the padding would be the distance from the frame border to the frame contents, to create a bit of white space between (for instance) a photograph and the border that surrounds it.
Should be possible even the frame is irregular, because the shape is identical.

Seems to me the same fields used for text should be enabled here. This would at least make sense for images scaled to the frame size.

For free scaling images wouldn't it also make sense to be able to set a basepoint for the coordinates (in Properties:Image)? E.g. refer to upper right corner instead of upper left.

The UI would be more consequent if you'd just allow to use the same fields as you use for textframes already.
This makes even sense, when the image is not scaled to framesize!

You just have to change the caption to "space between content"

I found the way Scribus handles the "standard box model" odd - it might be worth making it more straightforward to add margins and padding to text and graphics frames, basically in the same way as in CSS. I can't help thinking it ought to be a bit easier to put a standard amount of white space between my pictures and the text body.

the target version was obsolete so I bumped it.
Perhaps this will get addressed by avox via ScribusCTL
