Scanning from a File

It is possible to decode a barcode that is stored in an image file on your device, rather than scan with the device’s camera. To do so, press Menu and choose “Decode Image”.

You will be prompted to choose an application on your device that handles images, such as the Gallery application or a file manager. Choose an image file containing a barcode using that application. You will then return to Barcode Scanner+.

If successful, you will see a result screen just as if you had scanned a barcode using the camera. If not, you will see a short error message.
