How to Add Pictures to a QR Code?


An image contains more information than you may have realized. Too much information for a QR code. You lose Information like the date and the name once you print it or upload it somewhere. You may need to keep the information and also find a quick way for others to locate your image when they wish to. Image location is essential especially for influencers who may want to share pictures with their fan base. If you want to share without losing anything, you’ll need to generate a QR code for image.
