Background and Wallpaper Photos

September 14, 2020  •  1 Comment

If you are like the many other people in the world right now, you probably have had at least one or possibly many virtual meetings lately. Meeting virtually is not my favorite, but one feature I actually do like about virtual meetings is that some of the virtual meeting applications let you change your personal background for the meeting.  I enjoy having a different background, but it is also nice because no one on the meeting gets to see inside my messy office ;)

So, I'm sharing some my photos to use as backgrounds.  These photos have been cropped and saved in the format suggested for Zoom meetings.  But can also be used for Microsoft Teams, your desktop background and even you mobile phone wallpaper.

To access the photos:

1) Go to my web site here:

2) Click on the photo you want to download

3) Hover your mouse curser over the photo and navigate to the "menu" in the top left corner. 

4) Click "DOWNLOAD" and then "Original (1920 x 1080)"

Download as many photos as you'd like to use.  And while you are there, let me know the photos you like by using the share buttons for sharing on social media and leaving a comment below.

The photos should have downloaded to your "Downloads" folder.  Once downloaded, you can follow the instructions for Zoom, Teams, Windows or your phone to setup your new background.

For Zoom:

  1. Sign in to the Zoom desktop client.
  2. Click your profile picture, then click Settings.
  3. Select Virtual Background.
    Note: If you do not have the Virtual Background tab and you have enabled it on the web portal, sign out of the Zoom Desktop Client and sign in again.
  4. Check I have a green screen if you have a physical green screen set up. You can then click on your video to select the correct color for the green screen.
  5. Click on an image to select the desired virtual background or add your own image by clicking and choosing if you want to upload an image or a video.

For Teams, the instructions can be found here:
