How do I add my Splash to the Lumina Splash app?

Learn how to add your Splash to the Lumina Splash app if you have a Lumina Spark portrait

Before you begin, you will need:

  • A Lumina Spark Portrait with a Splash QR code, usually located on the final page. 
  • The Lumina Splash app installed on your mobile device. Click here to download.

If you don't have a Lumina Spark Portrait, you can use Speed Reading in the Lumina Splash App to create an introductory Splash.

If your Portrait doesn't contain a QR code, please contact the Lumina Learning Practitioner who provided you with your Portrait.

If you have a Lumina Spark Portrait but don't have a mobile device, you can view your Splash by following these steps.

Add your Splash by scanning your QR code - if it's your first time using the Lumina Splash app

The easiest way to add your Splash is by scanning your Splash QR code using the camera on your mobile device.

If your mobile device doesn't have a camera, or your camera can't scan the QR code, you can add your Splash by following these steps.

  1. Open the Lumina Splash app. The first time you use the app, you will be asked Do you already have a Splash? Select Yes.

    If you have already used the Lumina Splash app to complete Speed Reading, you can import your Splash by following these steps.

  2. Select Import Splash.

  3. The app will ask for access to your mobile device's camera. Press confirm.

    This permission is needed to allow the app to use your camera to scan your QR code, which is a barcode containing the information that makes up your Splash.

    If your device does not have a camera, add your Splash by following these steps.
  4. The app will open a QR code scanner. Point the scanner at the QR code in your Lumina Spark Portrait, which is usually located on the final page.
    If the Splash QR code does not scan, you can add your Splash by following these steps.
