Do your Zoom backgrounds need a little pizazz these days? Are you tired of looking at your bland computer desktop background? Whether you’re collaborating with coworkers on a video conference call, hosting a virtual happy hour with friends or celebrating a special occasion we invite you to meet in Cortland County from the comfort of your home by installing these custom fall Zoom backgrounds.
Host your next meeting surrounded the county's beautiful fall foliage, at Greek Peak Mountain Resort or in front of the 1890 House Museum. You can also broadcast inside Hollenbeck’s Cider Mill, on Lime Hollow Nature Center’s Eric Kroot Art Trail, at The Great Cortland Pumpkinfest and so much more! Enjoy your next meeting in Cortland County, no matter where you are.
To apply your new background on your desktop Zoom app, follow the steps below.
1. Begin your meeting in a well-lit room with a medium to dark background that is a different color than your top.
2. Choose your preferred background below, right click on the image and save to your computer.
3. Open Zoom.
4. Click on the up arrow beside "stop video" in the lower left and select "Choose a virtual background."
5. Click the "+" icon.
6. If the picture doesn't fully display or is distorted, troubleshoot by moving to a darker background or by adding more light.
For further instructions on setting up your virtual background, please refer to Zoom’s official guidelines.
