Founded in 1992, Image Data Systems UK Ltd (IDS) are renowned for providing essential and complete SaaS solutions to major publishers for nearly 30 years. Leaning on our extensive knowledge of the industry, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive, innovative tools for every publisher. IDS PictureDesk, our flagship platform, is a universal content aggregator that provides publishers, big and small, with a one-stop shop for content acquisition, delivering content from over 100 photo agencies.

Today IDS hosts 350 million files across our platforms with content from 250 providers being served to 3,000 publishing professionals around the world.

In October 2021, IDS became part of FADEL, providers of brand compliance, rights management, and royalty billing software. The combined solutions broaden our business platform to deliver content services, rights management, digital content tracking and sophisticated image and video matching for end-to-end brand management and compliance.

Working with IDS has been very rewarding. They understand our needs and are highly responsive when we require changes in our customization. The integration to our workflow is slick, and the ability to match images in PDFs through the overlay of ImageDiscovery is truly unique”

“IDS Pages has given us the ability to easily repurpose our content across our mags meaning savings on content creation and licensing”

“IDS PictureDesk is the 3rd greatest invention of all time- after the wheel and the dishwasher”

Daily Mirror

“IDS PictureDesk is always our first port of call; we use it every day without exception.”

“Industry leaders were insisting this couldn’t be done. That systems weren’t mature enough to handle the image volumes we needed to via the web, and that a multi-faceted hosted solution would come apart at the seams. Fortunately, we found a partner with the technology and flexibility we needed to succeed.”
