Embed QR codes in PDFs

November 23, 2011


QR codes have been misused and overused lately, but the fact remains that they are a great way to link the printed world with the digital one. Once a PDF document is printed, all the functionality of its hyperlinks are lost, but a QR code can bring a print reader right back to the web.

The QR Code Generator for Acrobat QR Code Generator is a timely addition to the PDF publisher's arsenal. It will create a QR code from any string that you enter into the input field. Existing codes can be altered, too.

Check out this post by Adobe's Joel Geraci for a step by step guide.
