FAQs for sharing photos with QR codes
Question not answered?
Can I link a QR code to an image?

Absolutely. You can generate a QR code that links directly to an online image or photo gallery when you add that scan destination to the Flowcode QR code generator.

What kind of photos can be shared with QR codes?

Any online image that you can link to can be shared via a QR code. This could include vacation pictures uploaded to cloud storage, an artistic portfolio on a website, pictures taken for a photography client, and nearly any other kind of image. QR codes provide a simple way to access photographs without having to rely on unwieldy URLs or clumsy email attachments.

Why would someone use a QR code to share photos?

QR codes make sharing photos easier and more interactive. They can be used to quickly direct people to online albums or photos without the need for typing in URLs or navigating through multiple pages. It’s also useful in instances where you may not want to save the photos necessarily, as this saves storage space.

How do I create a QR code for multiple images?

If you’re looking to create QR codes for multiple images you have a couple different options to consider. You can either create one online destination with multiple images or create multiple codes that each link to a single image. While the options you select might vary depending on your needs, the costs of creating a code will be more affordable, or even free, if you only need to create one code that can link to multiple images. If you’re looking for the most efficient way to share multiple images, whether event photos or an artistic portfolio, it likely makes sense to group all of the images in one location.

Can you make a QR code for a shared album?

Yes, and this is a great way to share several photos at once! First you’ll need to be sure your photos are uploaded to an online location that you can link to. This may be through any platform of your choice–Google Drive, Apple Photos, etc. Next, simply create a QR code that directs to a URL where a shared album is located.

Are QR codes for photo sharing free?

QR codes can be used to link to shared albums, individual photos, photo apps, or even to download photos. They can also be used to direct people to a site where they can purchase or download photos. Basically, if there’s a link, there can be a QR code.
