    Any suggestions for OSX software that creates QR codes? Preferably in .png or .gif

    I'm planning to use it for business cards, bonus if you know of one program that supports both.

    You can generate QR codes at this site, which outputs the codes to PNG. While they are not designed for commercial use, the site can generate codes for personal use. I do not know of any good software to create QR codes, but I have seen people take QR codes made from this site and do cool things like colorize them and make designs within the code.

    Being in marketing, I get asked the dreaded QR question all the time. My response: don't bother with them.

    Not only are they a dying technology, but studies have shown that the vast, vast majority of people either don't know what they are or don't have anything to read them. Of the people that are able to scan them with an app, it takes 40+ seconds to unlock the phone, open the app, scan the code, and be directed the page linked.

    Use that valuable business card space for something more important!
