Another popular use for QR codes is to connect a user to the App Store via their Android smartphone or Iphone for the promotion and sale of web developer’s apps. While there are several websites offering this service, my problem was finding good QR code generator software that integrates with the Adobe design software that most designers use.
Once you get beyond the basics in Adobe Photoshop, as a graphic designer you are always on the look- out for great Photoshop resources that will enhance your web designs or print media graphic designs for your customers and clients.

It’s a great boon to find these tools in a good economy, but it becomes even more vital in a tough one.
