Placing QR codes into InDesign file?
on Feb 8, 2011 at 5:00:24 am

Anyone know about inserting QR codes (those bar codes that are all over magazines these days) into InDesign?

Someone I know is going to get me a QR code for a magazine advertisement I'm creating. What is the standard format for this image I should get to place into InDesign?

Also, can I scale the image in InDesign or will that mess up the functionality of the QR code?

I'm delivering the whole InDesign file as a PDF to the publication.

Thanks in advance for any info!

Don't know about the scale/size, but I would assume that it wouldn't matter. (I've seen some on billboards before). As far as format, B&W 1-bit tiff would be best. Don't scale it out of resolution though, make sure you maintain 600dpi for a 1-bit image.
