All that was needed now was the link from the real world to the online world. I originally planned (as you may remember) to use 'Shotcodes' but during the time I was undertaking the project the main website where you create them was down and so I used a similar alternative 'ScanLife'. [EDIT: the shotcode website is now back online]
To work with the 'ScanLife' codes I had to register for a free account online and then work in a similar manner to 'Shotcode' by putting in the URL you want to link to and selecting how big you want the code then it will generate an image which you can print off like I did. To read the codes I needed to download the 'ScanLife' app for iPhone which worked very well and I did like the function that you can add favourite links to a specific album.
