"I like it, I'm just not sure it will work in my [bedroom/office/kitchen/living room]. I'll have to think about it."
Any artist that has exhibited at an art show or fair has become all too familiar with this objection. A potential customer seems to like a piece, but is hesitant because they're unsure what size to purchase, or perhaps if it will mesh well with the paint on the wall where they want to hang it.
Imagine if that visitor could easily pull out their phone, quickly scan a QR code, and instantly have an interactive wall preview of that image where they can change the size, the type of room, and the wall color of that room.

You can also provide them a code that directs them to the image's product page where they can get all the details they may need to make a purchase right then and there.
