How to use Zoom Virtual Backgrounds

Get started on Mac, Windows, Linux and more.

It's easy to use our virtual backgrounds for a Zoom video call. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Position your camera so you have a solid, single-color background behind you. Although you'll see the best results using a green screen, a plain wall or curtain is fine.
  2. Download our backgrounds bundle and save it to your computer.
  3. Open your Zoom client, and in the settings menu, look for the option "Virtual Backgrounds".
  4. Click "Add Image" then select the image you want.
  5. If the detected color is not accurate, use the color picker to select the color of your backdrop.
  6. If you need more help, check out the official Zoom guide.

You don't need any special equipment to use Zoom Virtual Backgrounds. All you need is a plain wall or another surface (like a curtain) of a single color.

For the best results, you can consider using a green screen (chroma key) background, and a light to ensure uniform lighting.

Zoom Virtual Backgrounds will help you make the right impression on your video call. There are some other tips you can use to make sure you look your best on camera:

  • Place your camera so that the frame captures your face and some of your upper body. Ideally, the camera should be aligned with your eyes - an external webcam and a gooseneck stand are ideal for this, although you can acheive the same effect using a laptop's inbuilt camera using a tall laptop stand or simply a stack of books.
  • Set up your lighting carefully. Use a light source that brightens your face, positioned in front of you. Of course, you won't want to use a light that's so bright you're dazzled by it. A diffuser can help with this. Make sure the angle of your light is pointing directly at, or from slightly above, your face. If the light points up from below your chin, you'll give the impression you're about to tell a ghost story.
  • Using headphones is a great way to to avoid feedback on the call. It prevents you (and others) from hearing an irritating echo on the call, and if your headphones have a built-in microphone, you'll sound better than if you simply used your computer or phone's built-in mic.
  • Avoid wearing any clothing that is the same colour as the wall or backdrop behind you, as this can confuse the software and make you seem like a ghostly, disembodied figure!
  • Position your screen (and the call window) so that you can look directly at the camera lens when speaking on the call. Avoid looking at your own image on the call by minimising it. The other participants on the call will feel like you're making eye contact with them, which increases that warm, trustworthy feeling.
  • Sit up straight, or if you have a standing desk, consider standing. An upright posture will help you stay energetic and focused during the call. If you're sitting, use a firm chair and try wedging a cushion or two at your lower back to maintain good lumbar support.
  • Test your internet connection before the call. Ideally, you should use an Ethernet connection rather than WiFi, as this can improve connection latency. A tool like fast.com will show you how fast your connection is.
