Hi, I’m looking for instructions on how to succesfully add images from a website url to my csv file so they can be used with Indesign data merge. Is this possible?
Many thanks.2023-03-02 at 6:17 pm #18507PatStaff
MyDataMerge is capable of merging images from URLs. There are basically 2 possibilities:
All your images are located in the same path on the website then you just need the filename in your datasource and can add the path in MyDataMerge. Or…
You have full URLs to your images in your datasource then MyDataMerge can handle that too.
Do you have one of these cases?
We cannot help you adding the URLs to your datasource from the website. We require a datasource to use and modify but we cannot build it for you initially

Hi Pat, thanks for getting back to me. Do you have an example Indesign and csv file that contain a full path url to an image (option 2 you mentioned below) so I can create my own based on the example.2023-03-04 at 7:17 am #18521PatStaffThis reply has been marked as private.
