Get in the spirit with virtual backgrounds!

Interested in adding some flair to your Zoom meetings, photos, or videos? The below linked step-and-repeats can serve as virtual backgrounds on Zoom (Zoom recording instructions can be found in a How to Video Guide). To use, select your preferred step-and-repeat and open in your browse, then right-click and save the image to your computer. Zoom virtual backgrounds are available on desktop computers and iOS devices.

Pro tips: Bright colors work best when working with virtual backgrounds. And avoid wearing the same color as the space behind you (plain wall backgrounds work best).

A full album of virtual backgrounds can be found on the Columbia Public Health Flickr page.
