Did you know you can personalise your QR Code?

The QR code is a 2D barcode that can link people direct to your website. Try scanning the image below and it should pop up with my Buggslife.com URL:

You just need a barcode scanner which you can get as an app on your smart phone. I use the app “Barcode Scanner” based on the open source ZXing Barcode Library on my HTC Desire S phone.

Anyway, to personalise your QR code just open the image in any editing software (e.g. Photoshop) and you can change the central portion. Be careful with the edges and don’t cover up the corners as they are critical. Then test it out.

A nice touch to an otherwise dull looking black and white square.
