1. A computer-implemented method comprising:
determining, by a computing system, a code;
determining, by the computing system, an image on which the code is to be superimposed;
associating, by the computing system, a block of the code with a corresponding part of the image;
determining, by the computing system, at least one of the block of the code or the corresponding part of the image is relatively more important than, respectively, another portion of the code or another part of the image;
adjusting, by the computing system, an opacity of the block of the code to generate an adjusted opacity for the block of the code, wherein the adjusting the opacity of the block of the code to generate an adjusted opacity for the block of the code is based on the determining that at least one of the block of the code or the corresponding part of the image is relatively more important than, respectively, another portion of the code or another part of the image; and
generating, by the computing system, a personalized code from the code superimposed on the image based on the adjusted opacity for the block of the code.
