Default Cleanup a BB barcode

Please Login to Remove!

I need to cleanup a barcode that I took a picture of because it won't scan. I tried to use paint and recreate it - but I must have the dimensions off. I don't want to post the barcode here because it actually could be worth something.

Is there a bb barcode app, maker, program... etc ?

Sorry for being a debbie downer on not posting a picture of it - but I'd like to do this myself.

I cant get it - I've tried for the passed 2 hours to recreate this barcode... I took a picture of it off my TV, and i just can't get it to look the same with the same dimensions of 25x25 pixels.

Well...the barcodes that are generated in bbm 5.0 are called QR-Code. There are various websites that can convert text, URLs, and even phone numbers into QR-Code. I believe that the bbm 5.0 barcode scanner function can only scan QR-Code that contains URLs, text, and bbm 5.0 specific protocols (PINs, Groups). It could be possible that the QR-Code you are trying to scan with the BBM 5.0 scanner is not supported.

Try Excel. I copied mine, tried to add it and it said "contact already exists" since I had added myself before.

Width of the columns I set at 1.71 which is the same number of pixels as the standard height as my default. You get nice sharp lines, and uniform sized boxes.

Plus a bar code will not scan on every resolution, if you are scanning this from your monitor.
