How To Create QR Codes In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there in this video we're going to look at how to make this Q. R code here in the top left. When it gets used. It's going to open up a website awesome. Let's go and learn how to make that now. Alright, so to create a Q. R. Code I'm on my page one I'm going to go up to object. I'm going to go to generate QR code. Now by default it's going to be at web hyperlink and that's the one that people use the most you can have it to be an email address. These other ones are a bit weird if you use a Q. R. Code and it'll give you some text. You could use it like as a don't know treasure hunt map thing. I could give you text clues. I'm not sure why you would. But um hyperlink is probably the most important one. Type in the U. R. L. Okay that it wants to go to and then pick a color. I'm picking paper for mine because I wanted to go on this dark background here but you could pick any color works for most colors. And when I say most colors, I mean that if I put black on this, it's probably not going...

to get read by the camera of the cell phone. So what it's gonna be a nice good contrast then you can just drag it out the size you need it to be now give it some tests before you go out to print. Okay, just to make sure that it can be read by a QR code reader. All right. And that's how to do a QR code reader. You can select on them and go to object and go to edit QR code to adjust it if you need to or change the color. Okay. Now, the the awkward bit, the QR code reader thing that nobody uses, it's up to you. You might find a really good use for this, but I don't know. The problem with QR code readers or QR codes in general is that nobody has a QR code reader on their cell phone by default so people have to download it and use it that way. Now the trouble is, it's like I've done it but I'm a super nerd when it comes to this sort of stuff. I need a QR code reader, but it's just not something on by default. So it's not a really good mass use. Now. Sometimes I put it on things just for like it's kind of like cool person social proof. Like look how cool we are with QR codes that nobody's gonna use. We've got a twitter and a facebook and a youtube and a Q. R code. It's I don't know, I find it's kind of like part of that proving how cool you are and how techie you are, but you've got to I guess not rely on it because I find it could be just me, you could be in a different situation. You might love QR codes and have a good use for using them, but yeah, just make sure you're not 100% relying on it. You know, I probably have a web address on there as well. Alright, so let's go. It's gonna be the end of interact. I've kind of shot you down in the last video. I feel like let's do all this cool, published online and then I kind of shut you down with a QR code. You might love it. Do QR codes, don't think don't listen to me. But that's gonna be it for interactive stuff for the moment. We're going to get into some shortcuts next, let's go and do that now in adobe. In design. Sorry. Q hours.
