Zoom Virtual Backgrounds


WKU's virtual background options allow you to share your Hilltopper pride while on virtual meetings in Zoom. Download and share with fellow Hilltoppers.

Zoom's Virtual Background feature allows you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting, instead of your surroundings. This feature works best with a solid background and uniform lighting, to allow Zoom to detect the difference between you and your background.

Instructions:
  1. Click your favorite backgrounds below to view the full size and download.
  2. During a Zoom meeting, click the "^" arrow next to the Start / Stop video button.
  3. Click "Choose Virtual Backgrounds..."
  4. If prompted, click "Download" to download the package for using a Virtual Background onto your computer.
  5. Click the "+" and select your favorite Virtual Background from your files.
  6. To change a Virtual Background, upload a new image or select a previously uploaded image.
  7. To delete a Virtual Background, hover and click the "x" in the upper left hand corner.

(Please note: not all computers or operating systems can support this feature.)

Horizontal backgrounds are usable on computers, while vertical backgrounds are usable on smartphones.
