QR Code Generators in Canva!

Published by TheJenalleeShow on

We used to think QR codes were ok. We kind of thought of them as a dying art of sharing information. However, we think a couple of things brought them back to stay; Covid for one, and also the ability to scan QR codes with just your smartphone camera!

There are tons of websites that offer you the ability to create QR codes quickly. Some are free and some charge. But wouldn’t it be nice if the tool that we use to create content had a QR code built in, and for free? Aww yes! That is a nice feature and one that Canva for Education is providing!

Follow these steps within Canva to create a QR code:

👉cick on the more button on the left-hand side of the screen

👉select the QR code image

👉paste your website link

✨WHALA✨ the QR code will pop into your design!

Now, you might be saying, oh that’s so nice Jenallee, but I like fancy QR codes with images and shapes in the background.

Canva once again has your back. You can create QR codes with images in Canva!! Here’s how:
