FOREVER QR Codes FAQs
Q: What is a QR Code?
A: A QR Code (which is short for “quick response code”) is a type of scannable barcode that stores information in an easily accessible way. Many are used to store URLs, which is the case with FOREVER!
Q: How do I scan a QR Code?
A: To scan a QR Code, simply open the camera application on your smart phone, tablet, or other smart device and hold it over the QR code. A prompt will pop up, taking you to the webpage you’re trying to access. It’s easy!
Q: How do I create a QR Code from my FOREVER Account?
A: You can generate QR Codes via the “Share” Icon in your navigation bar. Simply click the “Share” button, then select “QR Code.” Your code will be generated. Finally, just click “Download QR Code,” and you’re done!
Q: So how does the QR Code download?
A: Your QR Code will download as a PNG file.
Q: Can I create a QR Code for more than one file at a time?
A: Absolutely! Select as many files as you need, then follow the steps above. A QR code will be generated that links to the group of files you selected.
Q: What can I link in FOREVER using a QR Code?
A: Use QR Codes to share your FOREVER albums, tags, single files, or multiple files. Essentially, if it’s in your library, you can generate a code for it!
Q: What should I do with my QR Code once I’ve made it?
A: Whatever you’d like! QR codes are for sharing your files. Share them wherever you’d like others to see them and access your content! Maybe you want to include them in a photo book; maybe you want to add them to an ornament. Turn them into stickers! The world is your digital oyster.
Q: If I generate and share a QR Code for a video in my FOREVER Account, will the people I share it with be able to stream that video?
A: It depends! If you have a Streaming Video Plan, then anyone you share videos with from your account will be able to stream those videos. If you do not own a Streaming Video Plan, the users you share your videos with will need to download them before being able to stream them.
**Currently you cannot download videos to Apple devices from the mobile web. they must be downloaded from the FOREVER App, which can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store.**
Q: What happens if I move a file that I’ve previously generated a QR Code for?
A: Nothing! Your QR Code is generated based on the file itself, not its location in your FOREVER Account. So, regardless of where you move your file within your account, the QR code will still work.
Q: What happens if I delete a file that I’ve previously generated a QR Code for?
A: If you delete a file, there’s nothing for the QR Code to link to. Therefore, that QR Code will “break” and will no longer work.
Q: What size should my QR Codes be?
A: When adding QR Codes to photo books & other print projects, we recommend that you size them no smaller than 1.5 x 1.5 inches.
Q: Will QR Codes ever be available in other parts of FOREVER?
A: Stay tuned! We hope to expand this feature over time.
