The ultimate Zoom background collection
Zoom offers a few default image options to choose from, but it also allows you to upload your own images. A quick Google search for “free virtual background” will bring up any number of free backgrounds that are perfect for Zoom meetings and the like!
However most of the posts you will find just have one or two images per category, and well, we don’t really do anything by halves here. So we scoured the internet to find as many stunning images for you to use, to make your next Zoom meetings background a thing of beauty.
Just find the image you like the most and then just right click and save to use for your zoom background.
just in case you need it, to enable the Virtual Background feature for your own use:
- Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
- In the navigation menu, click Settings.
- In the Meeting tab, navigate to the Virtual Background option (under the In Meeting (Advanced) section) and verify that the setting is enabled.
The bookshelf Zoom background
In every smart person home, you will find books and it seems to be a pretty common sight to see some expert of something on the news, Zoom calling into your favourite talk show and over their shoulder, you can see some bookshelf overflowing with all sorts to intellegencia.
Why should they have all the fun?
The conference room Zoom background
If you are needing something a little more business then why not try one of these conference rooms Zoom backgrounds? While covid has moved us all into the Virtual world we can still think about, wistfully maybe, but we can think about those bygone days of commuting for an hour each way to sit in an over-air-conditioned space for 10 hours a day…
Ahhh those were the days.
The comfortable home Zoom background
If you’re anything like me, you’re working from a small corner of your home office, and behind you is a slightly off colour wall.
The rest of your house may be a picture-perfect Eden, but:
- You don’t really want to set up up your workspace in the living area and
- You don’t really want to be sharing that much of your personal life with your colleagues.
So how about you move into one of these stunning homes?
The forest setting Zoom background
Do you think that if you could be working remotely for the rest of your life and you had the opportunity to move to anywhere you wanted, would you take the opportunity to make that jungle change?
The clean air, the sounds of the forest, the constant fear that you’re going to get eaten by a 6 toed lama sloth? I know I would, but, until that day I can put the kids in boarding school and take a steam boat up the amazon, I guess ill just have to make do with one of these stunning backgrounds and just imagine.
Also yes, many people die every year from lama sloth attacks.
The funky office Zoom background
Are you working for some super cool, well funded and hip startup? well, then this lot of Zoom backgrounds is for you! Now you can have that exposed brickwork, visible plumbing, half-finished warehouse feel all from the comfort of your standard mid-sized condo.
No need to spend all that money, just throw up a funding background and bob’s your uncle! STARTUP!
The library Zoom background
If you’re not content with just showing a nice, fancy bookshelf as your background, why not step it up a bit and just show the whole library. Now you can tell people you’re actually batmans alter ego, Bruce Wayne, and this is just the little library you have at the Wayne manor. That you most certainly, truly live at.
Or, you can tell people that you’re actually super hardworking and that you are actually at the library.. it’s your call really.
The stunning view Zoom background
To finish out this mega list resource of Zoom backgrounds, we thought it would be nice to have ones of just a nice view out of a window.
You be anywhere you want in the world with all the virtual and remove conferencing solutions, and really post covid I think it’s really going to be the norm of a lot of business to have a mostly remote workforce.
So if you can’t afford to move to Spain or Portugal and buy yourself a cliff top villa overlooking the turquoise ocean then maybe one of these will suffice.
We hope you like it
We hope you get some value from this collection of backgrounds, while it will never replace the real thing, at least it’s nice to have a bit of fun while you while away endless hours on video calls that really could have been an email.
