Quick response (QR) codes are similar to bar codes in that they can be scanned by smart phone cameras with QR code applications. Once a QR code is scanned, it will send the user to a link the QR code points to. You can send users to a JPEG file on the Internet by uploading a JPEG file to a server on the Internet and creating a QR code that points to that JPEG.

Upload your JPEG you want to send to an image hosting website. Many sites, including Wordpress.com, Flikr and Photobucket, allow you to host JPEGs on their websites for free.
Copy your JPEG's uniform resource locator (URL) address. Highlight the address with your mouse, hold "Control," on your keyboard, then press "C." Your JPEG's URL address is the text that appears in your Internet browser's address bar.
Open your QR code generator. Many websites, such as Kaywa, QR Generator and Invx, allow you to create QR codes online for free.
Right click the QR code your code generator creates and select "Save Image As" from the menu that pops up. Save the image to your hard drive.
Send the image of the QR code via e-mail to those you want to direct to your image.
