Embed a Branded Logo Design Inside your Custom QR Code: Photoshop

Embed a Branded Logo Design Inside your Custom QR Code: PhotoshopQR Codes or the Quick Response Codes are the magical bar codes which can be read by smart phones. But these codes are often criticized because of their black and white appearance like a checker box. Fortunately these codes can be revamped while retaining their ability to get scanned. QR codes have enough potential from a designers point of view while designing a code to boost the value of you of your brand and make it appealing to the customers. This is the latest development in the ever-evolving world of brand promotion, but if you don’t feel that you have the technical capacity to do this, you could stick to the more traditional forms of raising brand awareness, just visit https://www.promotionchoice.com/categories/Drinkware/Custom-Coasters/ for example.

Quick Response Code was developed by Denso Wave, a subsidiary of Toyota in the year 1994 to help the car makers in managing different types of auto parts. These codes were developed to produce the fast visual classification of the components as well as for managing the additional information.

Quick Response Codes, these days, have become one of the most useful tools for transmitting information to the cell phone users because of its following advantages:

  • Minimum requirement of hardware and software to read a QR Code
  • Fast reading quality
  • Capability of storing a wide range of information from text to numeric to binary data

Here in this article we will discuss the way of changing a Quick Response Code and insert a custom logo design into it. This branded logo will be shown correctly in spite of this modification.

The QR Code which symbolizes a two dimensional bar code was earlier used by the organizations. But now a day it is extensively used for encoding and transmitting small information such as URLs, business cards, contact details, phone numbers, GPS locations, meetings and mails etc. This transmission procedure is performed visually and only the mobiles which are inbuilt with code reader software and camera can be a receiver.

Choose the QR Code type: While choosing you may find various types of QR Codes categorized by their number of columns and rows which are called modules. Nearly 40 versions are there containing modules from 21 to 177. Higher versions of QR Codes have more storage capacity but you may face problem while reading as it has higher density of points in the images. Therefore while choosing a QR Code keep the following things in mind:

  • Size of the message
  • Readers specifications
  • Error corrections
  • Number of modules present in the codes

It is suggested that version 6 can be enough for business cards, advertising and marketing campaign.

At First, read on how to generate a custom QR code online for URL, contact info. etc.

If you are a tablet or smart phone user you can easily read it by using QR code reader software while Nokia mobile users can download the software if they do not have QR code reader software inbuilt. Apart from these, people can also use internet QR readers which are offered for free by a number of websites.

How to Insert Logo Design into the QR Code

Though the Quick Response Code appears in a simple black and white image, they can be completely redesigned by inserting custom logo design while keeping their originality intact.

Follow the steps to insert logo design:

1st Step: First a version 6 Quick Response Code should be generated with a H error correction level (error level should be maximum 30%) for a selected URL. You may use a generator downloaded from the internet. The generator should permit you to edit the following:

  • Size of the QR Code image
  • QR Code error correction level i.e. up to 30%
  • Version of the QR Code i.e. version 6
  • URL address

2nd Step: Open Photoshop and open a new document with the following settings:

  • Background Contents: White
  • Height: 300px
  • Width: 300px
  • Color Mode: RGB

3rd Step: Add the Quick Response Code image using file -> place from Photoshop menu. Now the image is a smart object and is on a new layer. To identify the layer give it a name.

You can also resize the image if needed by selecting the layer and choosing Edit -> Transform -> Scale -> or Edit -> Free Transform (Ctrl + T)

4th Step: You can edit the QR code image from the layer by using Layer -> Rasterize -> Layer or you may right click on Layer and select Layer Rasterize.

5th Step: Here you can edit the image according to your choice

6th Step: Here you can generate QR Code with rounded corners by selecting the Layer and pressing the Ctrl and left click on the icon of the layer at the same time.

7th Step: You can apply Pattern Overlay, Gradient Overlay on the Rounded Layer if you do not perform the 6th step

8th Step: You can save your precious time by defining a safe work part that can be used as a reference. For example, if the QR Code generated with the size of 250X250 the safe work area can be 100px X 100px square and 200px X 50px rectangular and 100px radius circle.

9th Step: To highlight the embedded logo design 4-5 pixels white color from the background can be applied on the layer.

Find Mobile Number of Facebook Friends + Hide Contact Info [Privacy]

For any reason if you want to find the mobile number of a friend, the best place to find it is facebook. Most of the times, by the default settings in facebook, the mobile number of a user is visible to his/her friend on facebook if that user has added it by giving it to the site at some point of time. If you’re doing this process in reverse, i.e. you’ve received a call from an unknown number, you can check phone number online.

So, you can easily find most of your friend’s mobile number on facebook by searching on the Contacts page from your facebook account.

Once you log into your account, click on the [Accounts ] tab (top-right on the navigation bar) and select Edit Friends link.

On that “Friends” page click on Contacts menu to show a list of available mobile numbers of your friends on facebook.

Search For Friend's Phone Number on Facebook

This list pulls together the contact information your friends already share with you on their profiles into one convenient place. It also includes contacts you import from your phone.

Use Search to find the contact number of a friend you’re looking for. This helped me a lot to quickly find mobile numbers of facebook friends who are not there on my phone. By being able to view the contact information of my friends on facebook, I can use a reverse address lookup site to find more of their contact information. This can help me to find the address of a facebook friend just by knowing their phone number.

Though this is fine, you might not want to share your mobile number so publicly (with friends) on facebook unknowingly. You should then read on to see the privacy settings for hiding your contact information from Friends and strangers or specific people on facebook.

5. In the next window under Make this visible to you can select the option Only Me or the others.

Hide Contact Information on Facebook

By choosing “Only Me” youre specifying that only you can see that contact information on your facebook profile, while the rest of the world won’t see it at all or access from their phonebook page, unless you specify certain people in the above step to see them.

Tip: Use Your Laptop’s Wireless As Wi-Fi HotSpot in Windows 7

Best USB Data Card, Wireless Broadband Internet Connection Providers in India

Some of the popular wireless connections via USB Data Card in India are :-

  1. BSNL EVDO
  2. Tata Photon+
  3. Reliance Netconnect Data Card
  4. MTS High Speed Internet

My Choice : BSNL EVDO

EVDO stands for Evolution-Data Optimized. It is only available in select cities in India and offers download speeds up to 2.4 mbps. But if there is no EVDO coverage is your area, the EVDO card switches to CDMA 1.x based Internet access which gives speeds up to 144 kbps.

I am currently using Bsnl EVDO nic data card and to be frank I am quite satisfied with its performance. In metropolitan cities, download speed is quite good at 60-70 KB/sec.

But outside the city the speed is okay for surfing but not for downloading large files. All in all with the rental of 650 per month with unlimited scheme and with its speed it always fulfils my daily high volume internet usage needs.

Find detailed information about BSNL Evdo at this link.

Advantages, Disadvantages of Wireless Connection USB Data Cards

Bsnl Evdo

Pros:

  • Cheap price(Cost only 650)
  • Unlimited scheme
  • Speeds upto 2.1 Mbps
  • Good speed even outside the city

Cons:

  • Downtimes occur often.
  • Non availability of data cards most of the time
  • Unreliable speed
  • Coverage not so good outside cities.

Reliance NetConnect

Pros:

  • High speed with speeds upto 3.1 Mbps
  • Service centres available in most cities in India.
  • Better network and speed.
  • Customer care is good.
  • National roaming.

Cons:

  • No unlimited data plans
  • Expensive tariff
  • You have to pay much more even you get 1x speed.
  • Though surfing speed is good Download speed is not great

Tata Photon+

Pros:

  • Cost effective
  • Faster than 256 broadband line
  • Download speed is good
  • Customer care is good

Cons:

  • Lack in availability of network
  • Service centres not located in smaller towns and cities.
  • Most offers is in postpaid not in prepaid.

MTS Mblaze

Pros:

  • High speed internet
  • Wide range of data plans
  • Very fast in metropolitan cities

Cons:

  • Expensive for heavy data usage
  • Entry cost is much more
  • Not good speed outside the city.

My Verdict : These four are leading companies for wireless internet thru usb data card in India. I am using Bsnl evdo and I quite like it. It has the cheapest unlimited plan with a good speed. Now those you who are looking for high speed internet surfing I will suggest to them Reliance Netconnect. It has good performance when you are surfing but not for heavy downloading. Those who are looking for high speed download with least cost I will suggest to them Tata Photon+. And at last but not the least those who are willing to pay more for high speed internet (priority is speed) and also living in metropolitan city I will suggest them MTS Mblaze.

Popular Mobile Network Operators in India for Various Age, Social Groups

There are many mobile operators in India each of them trying to give some unique offer. The main operators in India in gsm services are Airtel, Aircel, Bsnl, Vodafone, Reliance, Idea, Tata docomo, and the last but not the list is Uninor. Here are some specialties of these operators which mainly attract people…

# Airtel

Airtel is the largest telecom business operator in India in gsm mobile network. From a poll result I can say that 35% (approx) of people in India is using Airtel.

Pros : Good Network Coverage. Reliability. Customer service. Lower internet charges. Good net speed in urban areas also.

Cons : Customer dissatisfaction. Unnecessary reduction of balance. At times poor service. Charges and billings. Not so attractive call tariff plans and for more infomation you should take a look at this phone service comparison!

Overall in recent times airtel’s service is not so good as there are many complaints over customer support, billing etc.

Many customers are accusing that they are cheated by Airtel. In 3G connection the technical support is also very bad. But all in all they have good network and also reliable in my opinion.23% of people are changing their number from airtel to others. But in my opinion Airtel is not bad as operator.

# Vodafone

Vodafone is one of the best service providers in India. Vodafone is India most admired marketer according to THE ECONOMIC TIMES.22% of people are using Vodafone in India according to a poll result.

Pros : Network coverage. Best service. Reliability. Indias most trusted service. Latest technology. Largest 3G network.

Cons : Online billing issue. Call charges are expensive. Expensive internet charges. Customer care is time consuming.

Overall Vodafone is not bad at all. If you are looking for an operator for good service with a lot of coverage all over India. I will recommend you Vodafone. In my opinion their 3G service is going to be the best in India which can be a big hit in the near future.

# BSNL

Bsnl is Indias fastest growing cellular service. Approximately 11% of people in India are using bsnl. They have brought gsm service at an affordable cost to the common man.

Pros : 3G Services. Economical. Pyari Jodi Plan. High Talk Value per Recharge.

Cons : Bad network outside metro cities. Poor service and customer support. No activation of Dosti. Worst customer care. No good sms message promo.

Overall I would like to suggest bsnl to those who does not travel a lot and also wants an economical mobile operator.

# Aircel

Aircel today has a presence that spreads across almost the entire length and breadth of India. It attracts mainly youngsters by their unlimited talktime offers. At present 11% of people in India using Aircel.

Pros : Unlimited talk time voucher. Good network. Pocket internet service. Charges and billings.

Cons : Internet service recently is underperforming. Raised money for unlimited money. No good sms voucher.

Overall Aircel is not bad but their recent increase of tariff has forced many people to ditch aircel. With their recent bad performance both in call charges and internet I will not suggest aircel.

Tip: Stop Mobile Advertisement Calls, SMS with DND service

# Idea

Idea is the 3rd largest mobile network operator service in India, in revenue terms, and recorded a subscriber base of over 78 million as on end November ’10. Ideas tariff voucher is very attractive and many youngsters love Idea for many reasons. According to a recent poll 11% of people in India are using Idea.

Pros : Network Coverage. Quality of Service. Tariff Charges. Value added Products. 3G Services.

Cons : No voucher for sms. Customer service is not up to the mark. Gprs is expensive.

Overall I will say Idea is not a bad option those who likes to call more rather than using internet. It has also very strong network and also reliable for its brand name.

# Tata DoCoMo

Tata Docomo has come up with the pay-per- use, per-second revolutionary concept among the mobile operators in India. TATA DOCOMO subscribers are now enjoying the benefits of pay-as- you-use, at only one paisa per second for all voice calls across India.

Pros : Good Network Best Call charges Best sms promos Cheap tariff Different types of promos for different kind of people.

Cons : Not good customer care Not good service everywhere.

They are rapidly increasing their network and is available in most of the places in India. Though theirs customer service is not good but Tata Docomo is the cheapest mobile service provider. Over all, I would rate Tata DoCoMo the best in terms of quality and Value for money.

# Uninor

Uninor is very new in mobile network service market but they are offering very attractive plans for call charges which entices more customers to be interested in Uninor.

Pros : Average network. Inexpensive.

Cons : Unreliable. Not so popular among most. Value added service is poor. No good gprs plan.

Uninor network has poor coverage with low quality and unclear voice on the network, especially rural areas the network is very poor. So though they have some attractive call tariff plans and in my opinion they are not very reliable, so don’t go for Uninor.

# Reliance

Reliance Mobile is one of the leading GSM Service providers in India. Reliances network is the best in India till now. But only 9% of people are using reliance.

Pros : Most widespread network coverage. Well performing Internet service.

Cons : Poor customer care and support. Low maintenance billing system. Unreliable service. Unnecessary deduction of prepaid balance on offers and unwanted services.

Though Reliance has best network coverage and good internet service theirs service and customer care is so poor thats why I will not suggest Reliance anyone.

Please Note, that these are my personal opinions and your viewpoint might be different. Let us know in comments which you think is the best mobile operator in India.
