The Best Zoom Background Ideas



So many of us have adapted to working from home life, and when staying indoors so much, staying connected with friends, family and colleagues is more important than ever. People across the globe have been passing the time by hosting virtual quizzes, fun game nights and work conference calls on the popular video communications app, Zoom. Having an easy and reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, the app allows up to 1,000 users to communicate remotely within the same call.


A well-known and popular feature of Zoom is its virtual backgrounds, making the app a stand-out choice for most of its users. With no green screen required, you can hide your messy or unprofessional surroundings from anyone you call. However, it is important to note that the default backgrounds on Zoom are fairly limited. If you wish to be standing beside the Golden Gate Bridge, in space, or standing between blades of grass, Zoom’s default backgrounds are ideal for you. However if you're looking to impress friends or colleagues and upgrade your overall Zoom call experience, why not create your own virtual backgrounds? With endless options to choose from, there's a Zoom background for everyone. Take a look at our guide to the best Zoom background ideas!


Note: Zoom virtual backgrounds are supported on Windows, macOS, and IOS machines that meet requirements.

 

How to make your own

Zoom doesn’t actually restrict the sizes of your background, however it is recommended that your image has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a minimum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. There are many applications and softwares you can use to create your background, including Adobe Photoshop, Canva, Microsoft Paint, and much more. 


Browse for an image you wish to include in your background. Once you have found the perfect image, upload it to your blank canvas and start to crop and adjust it to fit the correct dimensions. You can add coloured effects, stickers, more images, text, and anything else you wish to work into your design. Once you have finalised your ideal Zoom background, simply save and download it.
