How to Print or Add QR Codes to Photos

photos with QR codes

You’ve probably seen QR codes and wondered what they were. They’re not being used by the masses yet but they do add a certain level of cool to ordinary pictures. Business cards add a bit of flash by having QR codes printed on them. Another interesting use of a QR code is in personalizing gift tags. The instructions below will guide you through the process of printing out a photograph with a QR code.

Digital pictures contain more than just the photo itself. It comes with a metadata that tells you when and where it was taken, what type of camera was used, etc. However, the printout will only give you the image and none of the other possibly useful information. If you add a QR code, you can embed all those details and so much more.

Generate QR code

To generate your own QR code, visit a website that generates QR codes such as zxing.appspot and follow their guide. The recommended bar code size is medium. It’s easy to save it once it’s generated.

Any graphics software will work for this step. In our sample, we’ll use a web-based image editor called Pixlr Editor.

Step 1: Launch Pixlr Editor and open both your photo and the QR code you downloaded.

Step 2: Copy and paste the QR code onto your picture. The Ctrl+V keyboard shortcut works on this software.

Step 3: Use the Move tool to get the QR code to where you want it to be. Leave some room near the edges so you have some space to work with if you crop before you print.

Step 4: Save the final photo by going to the File menu and hitting Save. The Ctrl+S keyboard shortcut also works.

Step 5: It is best to do a test print on regular paper first and find out if your phone can scan the QR code successfully. If it does, then use the photo paper or ink, whatever you want to use for the final product.

How to Upload Photos and Videos Instantly in Google+ for iOS

The Google+ app for iOS has recently been updated granting people the ability to upload videos and photos instantly to their accounts. The start up process is simple, only needs the user to check in or out upon start up launching of the new update; there are many more options that you can change and personalize.

1_Google+_iOS

Instant Upload can be found under the settings in the Google+ app. Tap on “When to upload.”2_Google+_iOS

Within these settings you can change Instant Upload functioning or not functioning, as well as choose the preferred network for uploading content. The original settings are set to just Wi-Fi and mobile network for photos, and Wi-Fi only for videos. To alter either of the options, you are only required to click on the setting you would like to choose.

Saving all uploads for Wi-Fi only is a good choice for those users who are stuck on a tiered data plan, or who are experiencing throttling on an unlimited AT&T data plan.

Photos and videos can only be uploaded when the application is actively open in the OS. So if the application is closed, photos and videos will not be uploaded to Google+. The application must be opened and left open in order for uploading to occur. This is understandable because when background data is restricted in the OS the application needn’t work properly.

New photos and videos will be uploaded to Google+ by default. To upload all photos in your camera roll locate the button found at the bottom of Instant upload settings.

Photos and videos are set to private by default when they are originally uploaded as a privacy safeguard. You’ll need to set them to public so others can view them.

The Photo Stream service that Apple rolled out with iOS 5 can easily be replaced by allowing Google+ to automatically upload your photos and videos to your account.
