Two Of Our Favorite Zoom Tricks

Not everyone has a dedicated office space for working remotely.

For those of us who may have to take a Zoom video meeting in a room Mari Kondo would have a total field day on, Zoom has some nifty tools to get you over this hurdle. Here are two of our favorites:

Virtual Backgrounds
Zoom has pre-loaded virtual backgrounds or you can upload your own. As you can see, I had a little fun with it. You can find all of this under “Settings.”

Touch Up My Appearance
Sometimes HD is not my friend. I’m all about having a positive self-image, but no one needs to see the chicken pox scar on my forehead in detail. Under settings, choose video, you can uncheck the “Enable HD” box and click on “Touch Up My Appearance.” and Zoom will smooth and filter those out.

We wish you a productive week sheltered in place!
