Downloadable Seattle backgrounds for Zoom

Chances are, you are confined to your home like the rest of us as we all adjust to this crazy new normal of social distancing that is sweeping across the nation. Chances are, you are using Zoom as a way to connect with co-workers, friends, and family – anybody, really. Chances are, you wouldn’t mind hiding your personal space from those on the other side of the camera. And chances are, you would rather be anywhere else but your home right now anyway.

Have no fear – we have you covered. We have created a selection of Seattle-themed Zoom backgrounds that you can download for your virtual conference calls, happy hours, and family reunions. Who knows? It might just make you feel like you are out and about in Seattle, if only for the duration of your call.

To save the backgrounds to your computer, click the image to open it in another tab, then right click to save the image to your computer.

To add a Virtual Background to Zoom, go to User Settings > Virtual Background and upload from there. For more detailed instructions, visit
