Project Description:
We want to achieve a mail merge for images in Indesign by sourcing online images.
We need to find someone who can guide us through the setup on our system. I assume it will involve writing a script for Indesign.

Here are some references for what we want done:

Q: Is it possible to use InDesign's data merge to link to remotely hosted images if the full path is known

A: Yes, it is. The InDesign Scripting API has a Socket object, which provides low-level access to network functionality. You could then use something like the HTTP functionality in Extendables library:
