Tasmanian virtual backgrounds for Zoom
While you are virtually connecting with your colleagues, friends and family you can share an inspirational and picturesque scene from Tasmania as your backdrop.
Tourism Tasmania has produced 16 different backgrounds for you to download and set as your background on the video communication platform, Zoom.
To change your background on Zoom:
1. Sign in to Zoom, or if you don’t have an account create one at Zoom.us
2. Join a new meeting
3. Press the arrow next to the video icon in the bottom left of the screen and select > Virtual Backgrounds
4. In the new window, press the small + icon on the right-hand side and select > Add Image
5. Access the folder where your downloads are stored and select your favourite Tasmanian virtual background from the collection below. This will become the default background next time you start a video call.
To achieve the best virtual background effect, Zoom recommends using a high-contrast, solid-color backdrop, or a matt, non-reflective background that is close to you.
