I have to place 3,000,000 unique QR codes into InDesign template page file. 

The QR codes are given to me in JPG/PNG format. 

 

Is there a way to go around this?

Hi @Tommy Giovanni,I assume they are being merged into unique pages as well, so Data Merge is probably a good way to go. You just need a list of the paths of every QR codes. This can be either done via Excel if you have some kind of systematic file naming (e.g. 001, 002, 003) or on macOS via a simple Terminal command: find /the/path/to/your/qrcodes/ -type f > ~/Desktop/listOfQrCodesPaths.csv Not sure about Windows.
