Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Quick Response (QR) codes: Another kind of barcode, part of Package Design with Illustrator.
…In addition to the standard bar codes we've seen so…far, there is another type of bar code that's gaining popularity.…And that is the QR code.…QR codes are these small codes that are scanned typically with a mobile device.…With them you can provide additional product…information that you cannot include on your package.…You can also give out contact information for the product manufacturer.…You can include things such as a website hyperlink.…You can also include interactive information…with the use of augmented reality.…
So, how do you generate a QR code?…Well, you could certainly use the sources…we mentioned earlier, such as third party software.…Or online barcode generators.…But, if you have the latest version of InDesign creative cloud,…a new feature for that is the ability to create QR codes.…So, here I have just a blank InDesign document.…I'm going to go up to the object menu.…And here about a third of the way down, you'll see generate QR Code.…I'm presented with a dialogue box, and…then I can create different types of information.…
