Hollywood Zoom Backgrounds


Tag: Community

With many people working from home during the COVID-19 outbreak, more and more people are using videoconferencing programs like Zoom to connect with their coworkers and teammates. To make things more fun, Zoom allows users to upload their own photos and videos as a "virtual background," so that you can appear to be zooming in from a tropical island - or just hide the fact that your home is a mess! Here, we present some Hollywood photos that you can use as your virtual background on your next videoconference.

To save the photo to your computer, click on the photo to enlarge it, then right click (or control+click on a Mac) and save to your computer; you may need to take note of where the file is saved. Then, in Zoom, click the ^ arrow next to Start/Stop Video (near the bottom left of the screen) and click "Choose a Virtual Background." From there, simply locate the photo on your computer and upload as your background. (For more information on virtual backgrounds, click here.)
