How to Change Your Background on Zoom

Click on one of the links below your favorite Cinco de Mayo Zoom background to open a 1920 pixel X 1080 pixel file for desktop or 756 pixel x 1008 pixel file for your mobile device. Then you can right-click, and save the image to your desktop or tap and save to your mobile photo library.

Pro Tip: If you do not have a green screen (it’s ok—most people do not), you can choose a room with a wall that has a solid background color. 

When you log into your Zoom account:

  1. Click your profile picture and choose the settings link.
  2. Find the Virtual Background tab. (You’ll need to make sure the Virtual Background button is "on" from the Meeting tab.)
  3. In the Virtual Background tab, you can upload your own Cinco de Mayo virtual background saved on your desktop.

If you’re using Zoom from your phone: 

  1. When you’re logged in, click the More tab and tap the Virtual Background option.
  2. Choose a background from the provided library or upload your own photos.
