    I created a layout with a QR code once and I loved it. Not sure why I haven't done it again. Great layouts so far!

    Good tutorial on placing a qr code. I read through the thread, but now I need ideas for where else to Make a video for then using a qr code. I have photoshop for videos. I do not want anything posted on you tube though. I took a video of us going through the platform 9 3/4 at universal so that is what I want to include on my page. Photos don’t show it. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

    @catschwartz do you have anything that you access through the internet like Dropbox or one drive? You can use the Dropbox link and host it there.

    Or maybe even upload to Google Photos (they do video too) and link to it there? Also, you can upload to YouTube and set the privacy setting to Private and then no one can view it without logging in as you first.

    I love this idea. Is there a minimum size restricted on the QR-code?

    The ones I use are pretty small... I use them at the size they download from the site in the original post and that is 200x200 pixels which is less that an inch. I’ve never had s problem scanning them in my photo books at that size. :)

    The only thing I want to stress is to check the codes before printing to make sure they're all linked up properly. I thought I had and it turns out one code in a photobook I just got printed was a broken link. :overreact

    I printed a bunch of QR codes in different sizes on plain white printer paper. I can't remember how small it still worked, so I guess I need to do it again! It was pretty information since it showed me how it actually looked too!

    So far i haven't tried any video uploading. Thanks for responding though. I am afraid I haven't had time to monkey around, but I hope I will one of these days :)

    I LOVE these one second videos and every time I see yours I wish I had done something similar! How do you remember to take a video every day? @EHStudios

    I have videos in my Dropbox that I've linked through a QR Code. You just have to remember not to delete them.

    Mainly just thinking about the end goal helps. Plus I've been doing a photo every day for almost 7 years now, so even if I forget a video I can plug in a photo in it's place :D

    Well i made the codes, but didn't use them. After I made them I realized I didn't have any way to access them, to check they worked, so I ended up just typing in the url into my books :)
