I want to use storage craft image manager to control my incrementals backups but I am a little unsure where the image manager gets installed. Is this something that runs on a client machine connecting directly to the backup nas or is this something that gets installed on the actual server being backed up?

There is no such limitation, you can install on any machine, Image manager should communicate both backup server and destination of Nas where you are storing backup images.

If your nas is windows base then recommended to installed on NAS itself, or it will take long time to restore data from the network.

Am I correct in saying image manager is used to do consolidate continous incrementals so for example I take a full backup I then have the schedule set to take coninous incrementals so every hour the server takes a backup and the next backup after the previous one only backs up the files that have changed. So this means if I was to restore I would need everyone of these backups but with image manager it consildates them to one daily and then one weekly?

yes you are correct, image manager is used for collapsed, as per retention policy it collapse images.

if you have schedule 15mins backup after full backup then end of the day it will create single daily files ( not to worry it also keep 15 mins backups for last 3 days )

and 7 daily files get collages in to single weekly files.. and 4 weekly files get collapsed in to monthly .

its all depend on how you configured number of backups as well as retention policy
