Zoom Backgrounds

Zoom allows for the use of backgrounds during your video calls and meetings. Be at WWU even while remote.

Here are the steps to make it work from Zoom's documentation.

  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 the WWU backgrounds or the Western Libraries Heritage Resources Collection 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, or choose to add a video.
  5. If the detected color is not accurate, use the color picker to select the color of your backdrop.
