Streamlined QR code generation

There are several software solutions that produce QR code, some of which are free-to-use applications. These include Easy QR Code Generator, which is a free to use QR code generator software in any application environment - home, education, business, non-profit, marketing, economics, health, etc. You can use QR codes created by the application for any purpose and place, whether it is a web page image, product information display, Word document embedded image, Photoshop or InDesign graphics source file. Regardless of the task, you can generate and use the generated static QR code image files at no cost.

The symbol size

The smallest element of QR codes, which normally consist of black or white square image areas, is called a symbol. These symbol areas may be separate or connected. The use of color combinations other than black and white was made possible by modern high-resolution optics. Static QR codes that can be created by Easy QR Code Generator use this original standard specification, but different software for creating custom QR codes is also available. The size of the QR codes symbol determines the physical parameters of the image (pixel width and height). The minimum symbol size is the 21 symbol units and the maximum is the QR code, which is 177 symbol units. The symbols consist of position recognition patterns, timer patterns, format information, error correction level and data information. By default, the "Auto" symbol is defined as a combination of error correction level and depending on the input data.

Error correction level setting (ECC - Error Correction Capability)

QR codes also include additional error correction to aid image recognition in all cases that use Reed-Solomon error correction coding. This error correction algorithm allows the decoding of valuable data content even if the QR code is corrupted or incomplete. The Easy QR Code Generator supports four error correction levels (ECC) according to the standard, as well as an "Auto" level that automatically adjusts this value according to the data content. The ECC level value affects the size of the QR code symbol. The ECC levels of the Reed-Solomon code can be as follows, which define the maximum possible error correction level in percentage:

  • Auto - Automatic (algorithmic calculation)
  • L - Low (7% data loss)
  • M - Medium (15% data loss)
  • Q - Quality (25% data loss)
  • H - High (30% data loss)

Image output image formats (image pixel format)

The QR code image corresponding to the settings can be copied to the clipboard at any time, if necessary. The image copied to the clipboard can be processed by an external graphics program, pasted into a document and used in any way you like. If the image is to be saved in a supported output image format, it is possible to set the pixel format of the image beforehand, which is only a technical feature of the image, but may involve data compression. This can be 1, 4, 8 or 24 bits per pixel, the default (4-bit) pixel representation being adequate in most cases. The image of the QR code can be saved to a background drive by pressing the "Save" button. The supported output image formats are GIF, BMP, JPG/JPEG, PNG, the selection of which depends on the needs and can be adjusted as desired. The recommended image format is PNG (Portable Network Graphics), which is also the default format. The PNG output image format is one of the most widely used, be it for graphic image processing, document editing, infographics creation or even online use.

Data security during use

There are many QR code generating software and applications, most often you can encounter online solutions. Generating a QR code online is the easiest way to use it, but in return, you need to take some forced steps to use the service. This typically requires at least one registration, creating a user account through which a QR code can be generated from a browser. In fact, this has more drawbacks than advantages, because our data can and does fall into the hands of external parties. This can cause serious data security problems. With the Easy QR Code Generator program, concerns about online data management can be forgotten, because the application only uses offline QR code generation, without the use of any other additional (third-party) software. All data handled and used remain under the full control of the user.

Questions about Easy QR Code Generator application

QR codes or Quick Response codes, are two-dimensional barcodes that have become increasingly prevalent in today's digital world. They are capable of storing various types of information, including URLs, text, contact details or product information. The uses of QR codes are vast and diverse. From marketing campaigns to contactless payments, QR codes have found their way into advertising, packaging, event tickets, digital menus and more. They enable quick and easy access to information or actions by simply scanning the code with a smartphone or QR code reader. Their convenience, versatility and ability to bridge the offline and online worlds have made QR codes an integral part of modern communication and interaction.

Behind the simplicity of QR codes lies a fascinating technical background. QR codes are created using a matrix of black and white modules, with each module representing a bit of information. These codes use error correction techniques, such as Reed-Solomon error correction, to ensure that even if a portion of the code is damaged or obscured, it can still be read accurately. QR codes support various data types, including URLs, text, email addresses and more. Additionally, QR codes can store large amounts of data compared to traditional barcodes, making them versatile and widely applicable.

The QR code symbol holds meaning beyond its visual representation. The square shape and the positioning markers in the corners enable easy detection and alignment during scanning. The patterns of black and white modules encode the actual information contained within the code, ranging from website URLs to contact details. Additionally, the quiet zone around the QR code ensures that it is clearly distinguishable from any surrounding elements.

The ECC (Error Correction Capability) level of QR codes is an essential aspect that determines their resilience to damage or distortion. QR codes can be generated with different ECC levels, ranging from L (Low) to H (High). The ECC level determines the amount of redundancy added to the code, allowing it to withstand various degrees of damage. Higher ECC levels provide greater error correction capability, making the QR code more robust and readable even if it is partially obscured or damaged. Choosing the appropriate ECC level depends on the specific use case, with higher ECC levels being suitable for critical applications where readability is crucial, while lower levels may be sufficient for less critical scenarios.

The Bitmap Picture Pixel Format (BPP) is a vital aspect of digital image representation. It refers to the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmap image. The BPP determines the range of colors that can be displayed, with higher BPP values offering a larger color palette and greater color depth. Common BPP values include 1-bit (black and white), 8-bit (256 colors), 16-bit (65,536 colors) and 24-bit (true color). The BPP impacts image quality and file size, with higher BPP values resulting in more accurate color reproduction but larger file sizes.

BMP, GIF, JPG and PNG are popular image formats, each with its unique characteristics. BMP (Bitmap) is a lossless format that preserves image quality but often results in large file sizes. GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is best suited for simple images and animations, supporting transparency and limited color palettes. JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a lossy format that achieves high compression, making it ideal for photographs but may lead to some loss of detail. PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a lossless format that supports transparency and is widely used for web graphics and images with sharp edges.

UTF encoding, short for Unicode Transformation Format, is a character encoding scheme that facilitates the representation of various characters and symbols from different writing systems and languages. It provides a standardized way to encode and decode text in a digital format, ensuring compatibility across different platforms and devices. UTF encoding supports a vast range of characters, including those from ASCII, Latin scripts, Cyrillic, Asian scripts and many others.

The optical scanner is a remarkable technology that has revolutionized document processing and data capture. Also known as a document scanner or image scanner, it converts physical documents into digital images. The scanner utilizes optical sensors to capture the text and images on the document's surface and then translates them into electronic form. Optical scanners have become invaluable in industries such as banking, healthcare and administration, enabling efficient document management, archival and data extraction.

The 2D code, also known as a two-dimensional code, is a type of barcode that represents information in both vertical and horizontal dimensions. Unlike traditional 1D barcodes that can only store limited data, 2D codes have the ability to encode much more information, including text, URLs, contact details and even multimedia content. These codes come in various formats, such as QR codes and Data Matrix codes and can be easily scanned by smartphones or dedicated scanners.
