Indesign: Catalog from CSV with image from online


New Member
Looking to make a catalog of products that a website has on its eCommerce site.

TBH the catalog doesn't need to be anything flash to start with etc but basically a part of the page that has the product images, price, description.

All the information i can get from SQL dump or CSV export. But the images are all stored on the web and the url for the image is also in the sql / csv.

Is there a way to make images import into Indesign from the web and display when importing data from CSV using the mail merg feature in indesign CS4.

This catalog is purly for making online catalog to host on issuu to send link to customers nd maybe in the future for printing (after making more flash)

anyone does anything like this before??
