How can I add a newly taken photo to a sticker?
Since the photo you have taken is on your device, you can obtain the URL of the photo by uploading to google photos and sharing a link. It can be easily achieved by sharing the photo to google photos by clicking the copy link directly from the camera app. In addition to this you can also upload the photo to your google drive, dropbox, onedrive, or icloud.
How can I assign a video?
If the video is already on the internet (youtube, etc,), you can simply copy the video address from the address bar to techlabel. However, if you have shot the video, you can either upload to your google drive, dropbox, onedrive, icloud, or youtube and use the url.
How is techlabel useful for students?
Many of us have come across a scenario in the classroom, where students are presented with different diagrams or pictures in powerpoint presentations. One often finds it difficult to draw and endup taking pictures which never see the light again. This is because of the difficult task of finding the right relevant pictures again during the busy revision. Techlabel makes this easy for you by an easy to use printed QR codes. All you have to do is stick a code wherever necessary and assign it to the picture taken. Next time whenever you read, just point your cellphone at the sticker and it pops up in a Jiff.
How can it benefit readers?
It is common to verify the source, or search the internet for more information when you read an article, journal, or reference books. Techlabel makes your work easy the next time you do the same by pasting a sticker wherever you need.
