CG&S Design Build is here to help upgrade your home office. As COVID-19 disrupts our day-to-day, video conferencing, such as Zoom, is slowly becoming part of our new normal for those who are fortunate enough to take online classes, work from home (wfh), or take our happy hours virtual.

Whether you’re a WFH pro who wants to get creative, or just learning the ins-and-outs of virtual meetings and want to cover up a messy room, we've got you taken care of.

To download full-size file backdrops, click the name or images that you love the most. The image will open up in a new tab and you can drag to your desktop or right click to save.

In addition to photos, we have also created a step-by-step on how to change your background and navigate some other Zoom tools.

How to change your background:

  1. Make sure you “enable” Virtual Backgrounds by going to “Settings” at zoom.us in your web browser
  2. Once enabled, open Zoom on your desktop or browser
  3. Join or create a new meeting
  4. Once you have joined the meeting, look to the bottom left corner of your screen and click the UPWARD ARROW “^” located next to “Stop Video”
  5. When you click the arrow, you will see an option to “choose virtual background,” select that option
  6. You will then be taken to a new window in “settings” where you can choose from a default background or upload your own
  7. To upload our own, click the “+” on the right of the video screen in the “settings” window. This will give you the option to upload your own background from your computer into Zoom
  8. Select your image, and click “open”
  9. Wow your friends and co-workers with your new impeccably crafted surroundings.

We hope this will help add a bit of fun to your streams!
