Art on Campus Zoom Backgrounds

Are you missing the art on campus? Give your next Zoom conference call some personality and beauty with one of our virtual background images of objects in the Art on Campus collection.

See directions below for saving images and resetting the background on the Zoom application. 

 

       
     
     
     
     
 

   

Here's how to switch out your background:

  1. Click on the desired image above. Another window will open with the image; right click on it and save the image to your computer. 

  2. Open the Zoom application, sign in, click your profile picture, followed by the Settings link in the drop-down menu.

  3. Navigate to the Virtual Background tab. (If you do not see this tab, log in to the Zoom website, go to Meeting Settings, and make sure Virtual Background button is toggled on under the Meeting tab.)

  4. In the Virtual Background tab, users can choose from pre-installed backgrounds or upload their own photos or videos.

  5. If you do have a green screen setup, select "I have a green screen" so the software can properly set up your background. If you do not have a green screen, Zoom recommends streaming from a location with a solid background color.
