    Ausphotography now has a QR Code

    I have created a QR Code for Ausphotography:

    AP QR code.png

    Members are welcome to copy this code and put it on their phones, etc. So if you are out somewhere and the discussion turns to photography and AP, you can give them the link to AP via any QR enabled device (phone/pad) etc.

    For those not sure what A QR code is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code

    All that is needed to 'read' a QR code is a device with a camera, and a QR reader (downloadable from Itunes App Store/Android market. etc). You just start the App, and point your device camera at the code, it reads it and directs you to a website. In the case above, it directs the viewer to the AP site.

    To give you an idea of the benefits of QR codes, they can be used for things other than advertising.

    You can get a 'petcode' made for you dog or cat. Your unique petcode can have your name, email, address, phone number, vets details etc attached to it. So you pet has a code on their collar. Someone finds you pet, scans the code and can bring up all those details and contact you, your vet about your missing pet.

    Here is an example: http://www.qrpetcodes.com/

    Some companies even produce collars with the code embedded into it (if you pet likes to lose tags).

    Both my dogs now have a QR code, cause here in Hobart if you find a dog on a weekend and call the Council, you get asked if you can keep it till Monday cause they cannot assist till office hours, so even if microchipped (which you cannot read without a scanner), if the pet has a QR code, you can easily find the owner and get the animal back to them.
