    I am a bit new to this but my idea is to print a qr picture onto my bochure.However although I successfully downloaded one onto my PC it only came in a png format and when I converted it to gif it didn't (as you might expect) work on my smartphone.
    I only ask because the publishing program I use (Microsoft Publisher 98) doesn't accept png files and I am not sure how to work around this.

    OK the panick is over.I found another website that was able to do me a qr code in bmp format (qrickit.com) and this time it not only works on the phone but also in Publisher 98 !

    I thought most printers worked with high resolution PDFs?

    Cheers.
    It wasn't so much the printing as incorporating it into my preexisting brochure which I have already saved on the computer.
    I think I have used pdf s for printing before but it was a bit in extremis and from scratch as I remember.

    QR Code

    Hi, I can give you access to my own QR Code Generator so you can get them in 4 different formats. If you require custom shape qr codes, this can be done as well. PM me

    Irfanview is a free piece of software that can convert many image formats.

    Its worth a try.
