Your background should be sized at 1080x1920 250 dpi (or a 16:9 ratio) to be optimized for Zoom and most tablet devices and laptops.
To use your image on Zoom and enable the Virtual Background feature for your own use:
* Sign in to the Zoom web portal. * Click My Meeting Settings, if you are an account administrator or Meeting Settings, if you are an account member. * Navigate to the Virtual Background option on the Meeting tab and verify that the setting is enabled. * To add your new image to your Virtual Background library, click the box with the plus (+) and navigate to the downloaded image. * Notes: If the setting is disabled, click the Status toggle to enable it. If a verification dialog displays, choose Turn On to verify the change. If the option is grayed out, it has been locked at either the Group or Account level, and you will need to contact your Zoom administrator.
