Create a QR code with Adobe InDesign

Watch more InDesign Secrets at lynda.com.

QR codes are a great hybrid of the information-rich nature of text and the small footprint of images. You can encode almost any information you want, even long email messages, into a small square bar code that can be scanned and read by a smartphone. In this episode of InDesign Secrets, David Blatner shows how to embed plain text, URLs, text messages, emails, or a digital business card as a QR code in your Adobe InDesign documents, with one simple command from the Object menu. Then learn how to create a more eye-catching QR code by breaking down and styling its editable objects. Watch the free video below to learn more.
