    1. Open your Zoom application.
    2. Next to the Video (camera) icon, select the up arrow. A menu will appear above the button. Select Choose Virtual Background.
    3. A Settings window will appear. Under the video image of yourself, there will be a Choose Virtual Background heading and a plus icon. Select the plus icon and then Add Image.
