When photographing a barcode, for best results please capture the barcode as large as possible within the photo frame and ensure it is square inside the frame and not skewed.

On a computer:

An explorer box will open on your computer. Navigate to the image of your barcode and open the file. Once the barcode in the file is read, your browser will direct you to the asset matching the barcode.

On a mobile phone or tablet:

Your device will prompt you to access the camera or select an image from a photo library. If you choose to use the camera, simply take a photo of the barcode. Once the barcode in the photo is read, your browser will direct you to the asset matching the barcode.

UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, ITF, Codabar, MSI, RSS-14 (all variants), QR Code, Data Matrix, Aztec, and PDF-417.
