Virtual background without a green screen


Hello, I uploaded my own image for for the virtual background on my laptop.  I am not seen clearly in the Zoom meeting when using a virtual background image.  A solid video background is required. Green color is preferred. How do I manually select the color or the background?

Hello yycprice,


You can go to the Zoom desktop software settings then go to Background & Filters. From there, you can set the color of your background by clicking the color swatch in the lower right of the video preview window. For more information, please see the support article here.


Hope this helps!

My greenscreen is showing in my background picture periodically.  How do I fix this?
