Importance Of Beautiful Backgrounds On Zoom?

If you have young children or find yourself living alone with limited time for cleaning, there might be elements in your background that you prefer not to showcase to your colleagues or clients. This situation may not present an ideal setup for projecting professionalism and trustworthiness. However, the use of beautiful Zoom backgrounds offers a solution to this challenge.

How to Look Your Best on Zoom Meeting

Tip 1 Zoom-compatible formats include:

Images that use a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of at least:
1280x720 pixels are the best choice.

The video should be an MP4 or MOV file with a minimum resolution of:
480x360 pixels (360p) and a maximum resolution of 1920x1020 (1080p).
Tip 2 For the cleanest results, use a solid color in the background or better yet, a green screen. Avoid having windows at your back so you do not present a dark silhouette. Avoid having people walk behind or around you.
Tip 3 You need to be in a very good lit room. Don't wear clothes that are the same color as the virtual background.
