  1. @TECITSoftware uhm, maybe you could generate them in color, like your youtube channel's picture.
    Would it still work to scan? ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. @shortcutdanne Thanks for feedback! Currently you have to color the codes manually (paint/photoshop/whatever). I'll speak with the developer if he is willing to spend some time in the near future ๐Ÿ™‚

    It's possible to use colored codes, the contrast is relevant for a successful scan. If using colors – tend to darker ones when printing on white.

  3. i want the QR code as well but it wont let me select it.
    my only options are:
    code-2of5 interleaved
    code-39 Full ASCII
    and a few more

  4. @yorockyboxerdude Thanks for your comment. Please select the category 2D Code first (blue images above the barcode). You can even scroll the available categories by clicking the red arrow to the right. Hope this helps!

  5. Good information if I wanted to have the barcode on my upcoming album to link to my website would that be a different service or could I still use the FREE generator?

  6. You just help me a whole lot to create my own utility patent using barcode creator this is intelligent thing that I'm doing right now thank you so much.
