How does a QR Code generator do?

QR Code generator develops a Quick Response Code. A white and black square-shaped barcode that provides information in a two-dimensional pattern. It works:

Input Data: First, the user must provide the data he wants to share in code. This input data might be a website’s URL, text up to 4000 characters, contact information, login verification details, WiFi credentials, links that directly download the app through the Google Play Store or Apple App Store, and many more. 

Data Encoding: The QR Code generator converts the input data into a binary format. The binary format is a series of bits or 0s and 1s. 

Error Correction: Generators add redundant or wasted stuff/data to stay readable even if it is damaged because of scratches. There are 4 different levels of error correction. These errors are recommended with an embedded log in the center of the QR code. Errors are: 

  • L(damage up to 7%) 
  • M(damage up to 15%)
  • Q(damage up to 25%)
  • H(damage up to 30%)

Data Masking: The Data Masking step modifies and distributes the binary data into square-shaped black and white barcodes. The scanners are never confused about scanning because this data is easily understandable. 

Generator Matrix: Generators arrange the input data into a grid of square patterns. This grid contains several patterns with the data and the error corrections.

  • Finder Patterns: There are 3 large square patterns located on the edges of the QR Code, which helps to scan the code.
  • Alignment Patterns: The large no. of small patterns helps to create a code having correct distortion. 
  • Timing Patterns: The black and white portion between the finder pattern analyzes the size and angle of the QR Code to help with scanning. 
  • Version Information: The larger blocks in the code indicate the version of the QR Code.
  • Format Information: To make the QR Code easier for the scanner, it consists of information including error corrections and data masking patterns. 

Output of a QR Code: After completing the process, now your QR Code is ready to share and use in a visual format. You can save it in the format of PNG, JPEG, or SVG. These can be printed and shared.

Customization: Some tools allow you to customize the QR Code to change the look and feel with the background, color, logos, text, etc PicsArt also allows you to modify the design. 

This QR Code can easily be scannable with smartphones having suitable software to perform actions like opening a URL, text, information, etc.
