Zoom Backgrounds

Download the background file to your desktop from the link. Once you open the Zoom app, go to>preferences in the upper left and click on it to open preferences. Once open, click on “virtual background” in the left column. You should be able to see yourself in the preview area. Next, click on the “+” to add the background file from your desktop. It is now loaded for use. Be sure that if you click “mirror my video,” any imagery or logos are not showing in reverse to your viewer(s).  Most times this is not the case, even if it is mirrored on your end. You may want to test this before beginning a session.
