Where to Find the Perfect Zoom Video Background
Forget trying to find the perfect desktop wallpaper. Now that everyone’s using Zoom—or one of the many Zoom alternatives —it’s all about picking the right virtual background. Swapping in one of Zoom’s built-in backgrounds might’ve elicited a chuckle back when teleconferencing was a new thing, but now that we’re all work-from-home pros, the real power move is uploading your own custom backgrounds. We’ll give you tips on finding the best-quality backgrounds out there, plus highlight some resources where you can download some for free.
Also, our previous guide on creating your own custom Zoom background will show you how to import your new images into Zoom if you’re not sure how.
Know Zoom’s image requirements
Just about any image you download off Google Image Search can be used as a virtual background if it meets Zoom’s 5MB file size limi t, but if you’re really trying to sell the illusion you’re somewhere else besides your living room or home office, you’ll need to refine your search criteria.
First off, Zoom backgrounds can be JPG/JPEG, GIF, or PNG images. Zoom doesn’t support backgrounds with transparency, however, and will fill them in with a solid white when uploaded.
As for sizing, Zoom backgrounds display in 16:9 and you’ll want to find images that fit those dimensions perfectly—otherwise Zoom adds black bars around the image. Aim for images with 1920x10 80 resolution for the best-looking results, which is the highest resolution Zoom supports. PNGs will probably be the highest-quality images you’ll find, but they’re also larger files than JPEGs and can easily exceed Zoom’s 5MB limit.
Where to find Zoom backgrounds
If you don’t want to comb through Google Image results, there are a few places where you can find perfectly-sized, high-def images made specifically for Zoom backgrounds.
One of the best resources is Twitter. As Zoom and other video conferencing apps become more popular, plenty of companies have been posting hi-res images of iconic movie and TV sets to use as virtual backgrounds. Searching Twitter for “video call backgrounds” or “Zoom backgrounds” will turn up tons of great results, like these from Marvel and Fox (Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy) . The official Zoom Twitter account will also retweet some great background occasionally, too.
Lucasfilm/Disney released a collection of official Zoom backgrounds featuring well-known landscapes, starship interiors, and classic shots from the entire franchise.
Modsy TV show interiors
The interior design company, Modsy, recreated a bunch of beloved sitcom living rooms and turned them into Zoom backgrounds. You’ll find the entire collection here .
The Public Domain Review has tons of high-resolution Zoom backgrounds available for free, featuring iconic paintings, photographs, and illustrations from throughout the ages.
New York bars
Virtualcheers.org lets users donate to their favorite local NYC bars and download a high-res image of the bar’s interior to use as their Zoom background. I hope other cities startup similar sites—I know most of my fellow Portlanders would be super into it.
Bring your vacation to Zoom meetings with free travel backgrounds from TPG
Most of us are working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic . And most of us have meetings on Zoom. So why not have some fun with those hours of meetings, and be reminded of what awaits us when we can travel again?
We're happy to help you do that by bringing travel right into Zoom.
For more TPG news delivered each morning to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter .
We have selected dozens of pictures taken by our staff and other sources to use as Zoom backgrounds. We hope they will help remind you that there's a world waiting to be discovered, on the other side of this.
You'll be able to go, virtually, all over the world. A U.S. city, for example Phoenix? The Maldives? An international gateway airport, like Los Angeles, to make you think of the flights that will get you there? We've got you covered.
Download free Zoom backgrounds from TPG here
To download the images, you just need to navigate to this Google Drive folder , choose your favorite (or favorites — you can download any or all of them free of charge), and download them to your computer or device.
Then, open your Zoom app's settings. On the Mac desktop version, it looks like this:
Then select "Virtual Background" and click on the plus sign below your video window. Navigate to the folder where you've downloaded your backgrounds, and you're all set.
For more travel tips and news, sign up for TPG's daily email newsletter
You'll find among those images a generous helping of airplanes, as well as picturesque locations, because we cannot wait to be inside of a commercial jet again — including our favorite, the Airbus A380.
And because we have a penchant for traveling in style, virtually or not, we've sprinkled some airline lounges in there too, like United's beautiful Polaris Lounges.
We can't wait for you to come travel with us — today on Zoom, and tomorrow in the real world.

Free Disney Zoom Backgrounds & Wallpapers
With many people attending school or working from home, video conferencing via Zoom has become a common way to connect with co-workers, classmates, friends, and family. Several readers have asked for Walt Disney World and Disneyland virtual backgrounds in response to our Disney iPhone Wallpapers . ( New releases February 13, 2021. )
I’m a big fan of fun backgrounds for video calls. While I personally prefer the cheeky Zoom backgrounds featuring Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, Central Perk from Friends, the office from…The Office, Ron Swanson’s desk, or Twin Peaks’ red room, Disney backgrounds also offer geeky goodness.
For some reason, it never occurred to me to create my own Zoom backgrounds out of my own photos prior to readers asking about it. So, I did a little research–Googling “what makes the best Zoom virtual background” to determine if certain color choices and layout styles were better, and created some free Disney Zoom backgrounds out of photos I’ve shot at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland & DisneySea, and Disneyland Paris.
As with the iPhone wallpapers, we’re offering these backgrounds as an exclusive thank you to our email newsletter subscribers, and we plan on expanding this gallery over time. (Leave a comment below if you have any requests!) Additionally, if you were sent this link by a friend who is a newsletter subscriber, please be sure to sign up for the newsletter , so you receive updates and future Disney virtual Zoom backgrounds as they are released.
February 2021 Update: Our latest batch of new Zoom backgrounds fixes our glaring oversight of not offering any daytime photos of the parks. Many of you pointed out that since most of your Zoom calls are during business or school hours, daylight backgrounds work better than nighttime ones. We’ve remedied this, adding blue sky photos of every Walt Disney World theme park, plus other new designs!
Now some instructions for obtaining the high-res files so that these Disney photos look crisp and beautiful–and you can fool your colleagues and classmates into thinking you’re really at Disney during your virtual meeting. You’ll be the envy of your office! 😉
(If you need them, there are instructions for adding a virtual background into Zoom below the photos.)
1. Hover your cursor over the photo you’d like to download and use. 2. Right click the photo and choose “Save Image As…” 3. Save the image to a location on your computer 4. Photos are already sized appropriately for installation and use in Zoom. If you’re using the background for wallpaper purposes elsewhere, you may have to adjust the photo, resizing it and/or scaling it down.
Once you have Zoom open and and you’re logged in, navigate to the gear icon on the top right under your profile picture.
In the Zoom settings, click on the “Virtual Background” tab on the left side menu and from here you will have the ability to add, remove, and edit your virtual background image. Here you’ll see a variety of Zoom’s pre-loaded background photos. Above those images is a little plus symbol–click on that.
You’ll then be prompted to select an image from your computer to add as a background. Select the downloaded photo, and then the next time you’re on a Zoom video conference, you’ll see your Disneyfied background, instead of your home office, couch, or bed. It’s great for those of us who want to meet in Fantasyland…or just don’t want our colleagues seeing whatever weird stuff we might have on our shelves!
If for some reason you do want to “impress” your colleagues with a background showcasing “your” rad Disney collection, here ya go:

At Home , Walt Disney World
Virtual zoom backgrounds of the disney parks and resorts.
LISBON CITY GUIDE
Walt disney world, accommodations, other theme parks, disney land, universal orlando, family cruising, disney cruise line, river cruising, cultural experiences, adventures by disney, relaxing beach destinations, everything else.
With many of us at home, video conferencing has become a favorite way to connect with co-workers, classmates, friends and family. For many of us, that means scrambling to find a clean corner of the house and quickly stacking books to place your laptop on so you can limit the extraordinary amount of chins you suddenly seem to have. While I can’t help with the unflattering angle of the laptop camera I can save you from finding a decent background.
I have created some Zoom backgrounds from my favorite Walt Disney World Photos just for you. Bring a little Disney Magic to your meeting, class, or wine time!
How to Add The Background
The virtual background feature allows you to display an image or video as your background during a Zoom Meeting. This feature works best with a green screen and uniform lighting, to allow Zoom to detect the difference between you and your background. But you can do it without one! Just make sure both your computer and Zoom are completely updated .
Once you are logged into zoom click the arrow to the right of the camera and select virtual background.
Select Your Background
Select from your already uploaded backgrounds or click the arrow to add options from your computer. I have included 3 for you here. Just right click the image and save it.
Then all you need to do is make everyone else jealous they don’t have a cool Disney parks virtual background like you do.
Want More Zoom Background Choices?
I created an additional 25 Walt Disney World Zoom Backgrounds, but couldn’t put them all up without risking my website running EXTREMELY SLOW. Enter your email below to have them sent to you and add a touch of magic from your favorite park or even resort.
Images Include: The Wilderness Lodge, Harambe in the Animal Kingdom, Haunted Mansion, Battuu Marketplace, Main Street USA, The Floating Mountains in Pandora, The Grand Floridian Lobby, Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios and More.
Have a favorite location that you did not receive? Respond to the email and I will search the photos of my many trips and customize it just for you!!

I love these but can’t use them. When I use a video call app, my head is in the middle of the screen. How about some backgrounds where my head doesn’t cover the graphic? Maybe put the graphic to one side?
