If you're not familiar with QR Codes, you might want to watch this YouTube video on the subject.
To accomplish the goal of dropping an image into a QR code that looks like the finished product below, I merely followed these steps:
- Generate the QR Code with this web site, RacoIndustries QR Code Generator. You can also use Kaywa's QR Code generator. At first, I thought only the former would work but experimentation revealed that you could use both QR code generators equally well.
On the RacoIndustries site, I made sure to set these parameters:
- QR Code Version 6
- Error Correction Level: H 30% of codewords can be restored
