Free QR Creator Portable
For easy identification and management, each commercial item comes equipped with its own virtual fingerprint, represented by a barcode. It is capable of storing any info in a unique set of vertical bars or dots, depending on the type. Such codes can easily be created with the help of specialized applications like Free QR Creator Portable.
Lightweight and easy to use
The application requires you to have roughly 5 MB of hard disk space available with barely noticeable system resource consumption. Seeing how this is the portable version, you can easily store and run it from an external disk drive.
You are given a comfortable interface, with a decent preview section fitted with a zoom slider. All available features are cleverly arranged so that you don't have to open up different windows or menus in order to access them.
Convert data into a QR code and save it to a file
Near the provided text field in which you input data to be transformed, you come across a “Load” button. Pressing it gives you the possibility to import a TXT or RTF file and its content is automatically pasted in the given field.
There are tow types you can choose from, micro QR and QR Code (ISO 18004). The second one can be fitted with a breathtaking amount of characters, allowing you to enter nearly any needed info.
Several customization options are available. The code itself can be colored to suit any needs, as well as the foreground. You can also choose to add a border, either surrounding the code or at top and bottom, with a specific thickness.
When work is finished, the code can be saved to an image file of some of the most commonly used formats. Unfortunately, there is no implemented function that allows you to quickly print out the code, having to run an external application that can do so.
To end with
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Free QR Creator Portable is a practical and quick solution to generating a digital fingerprint for your commercial items. Available features are not plentiful, but the application manages to deliver what it promises.
