How to create a Zoom virtual background

  1. Open Canva

    Open up Canva and search for "Zoom Virtual Background" to get started.

  2. Choose a template

    Explore our templates to find one that matches your vision. Use the search tool to filter the templates by color, style, or even background photo (office, classroom, etc.). You can start designing from scratch too.

  3. Customize the design

    Once you've chosen a template, customize it by tweaking the colors, font style, and font size. You can also browse Canva's vast library of graphic design elements and add photos, illustrations, icons, text, stickers, and more to your design.

  4. Personalize your background

    Add your personal touch by uploading your own photos, logos, and other design elements used for business or personal branding. Drag and drop them to your layout and move them around until you're happy with their placement. Then, fine-tune and finalize your design.

  5. Save or share

    Download your Zoom virtual background design as a high-quality image file, so you can use it on your next meeting. Or share it directly to your social media accounts and show it off to your co-workers and friends.

Highly useful for our campaign posters. Canva has come as big support to many of us who were dependent on designers for our every design need. Now Canva is enabling many of us to design quickly and easily even for amateurs. Highly recommended!
