Recommended To Use A PC

Since you'll need to scan your QR Code via the Switch Online App, you'll probably need to use a separate device to open this article. Upload the image on your PC or tablet and scan with your smart phone.

Upload A Picture


The first step is simple: click the Choose A Picture area and upload the picture of your choosing.

Set Vertical And Horizontal Dimensions


Once you upload the picture, choose the length and width. The maximum you can do is 6x6 cells! It's possible to make a rectangular design using this. Note that the dimensions you choose here will determine how many QR Codes are generated! 4 x 2 = 8 codes, etc.

The More Cells, The Higher The Resolution

Simply put, the more cells (squares) you split your image up into, the less information each individual cell will contain. This means that the overall resolution of the design will increase. The only downside here is this will use up more in-game space, so you'll have to choose what to prioritize!

Choose A Palette And Color Pattern


When you've chosen your size, choose the color and palette! There isn't a huge change when you do this, so we recommend you just stick with RGB for your first try.

Press Convert And Generate QR Codes


When everything is to your liking, press the Convert button and the tool will spit out some QR Codes (or just 1, depending on your size). Remember, you'll need to scan each QR code individually!

Scan The QR Code(s)

Nintendo Switch Online App

Scan your QR Code using the Nintendo Switch Online application. Log in to the app with the same account you use for Animal Crossing!


↑ The Custom Design screen on the Nintendo Switch Online application.

You'll be able to scan QR codes from the Custom Design part of the app. Point your device at the QR Code to begin scanning.

Download The Images You Uploaded


After scanning the QR Code, start up New Horizons and open up the Custom Designs menu. Using the + button you'll be able to download the QR Code designs you scanned. If you have multiple QR Codes, first scan them, download them, then change them into a pattern.

Some Set-Up Is Required The First Time

Set up

In order to use connected applications like this, you'll need to do some adjustment of settings the first time you run the application. Restart the game and press the - button on the title screen to make the necessary changes.

The designs aren't editable and shows that it's from 'Gamewith'. Is there any way to change that?
