Question about resizing QR codes. Can we make them bigger or smaller?

Question about resizing QR codes.

Keeping up with technilogical advances.  Whew!  What a job that has become.  There are probably asCorinthian Villa Condo for rent in Ormond By The Sea Florida many people as unsure about these things as I am as there are people who understand and can fully utilize the QR codes in their business.  Unfortunately (?) I only use my cell phone for telephone calls so I cannot try out these things.  And others that I have asked either do not have a phone that is capable of using this technology or have no intention of downloading the App required.

When making flyers and otherwise looking to make a QR code fit to an available space does making it bigger or smaller render it useless?  is there a limit to the increase or decrease in size?  Will it still do it's job if the original size is modified.

I have not yet tried QR codes but there are many posts about the topic. Good luck.

I use QR code to my website as one of the photos in my Craigslist ads.  I don't know if they work, but they show I am semi-tech savvy!

Al, Hi. Yes the QR codes can be resized.  I would try and use a similar size ratio to keep the length and width on proportion. Some photo resizing programs allow you to maintain a image ratio.  A free photo resizing software that I use that works great is FastStone. 

I use QR codes all of the time on the back of my business cards that link to my mobile friendly website and I also use them on my 6 x 24 sign inserts that connect buyers to my mobile  website featuring all of my listings with photos and  virtual tours that can be viewed on all smart phones. 

Another tip is to find someone that has a smartphone, e-mail the resized image to them and have them scan it.

Gita,
I have read many posts about QR codes and did not see this answered so I thought I would ask.

 Wallace, 
semi-tech savvy?  Maybe you have something there.  I was trying to be sure I got it right before sticking the codes everywhere.  Hmmm.

Ryan,
Thanks for the advice and confitmation that these codes can be resized.
