Show your Seminole pride with a custom FSU Zoom background

Monday 04/20/2020

Did you know you can create custom backgrounds to use during your daily Zoom calls? While Zoom provides some stock background images, FSU Zoom users can also upload their own photos and videos. Take any horizontal image of your choice and make sure the size is 1920x1080px or an aspect ratio of 16:9. If you are a Teams video chat user, these images work for Teams backgrounds as well.   

On the hunt for FSU Zoom backgrounds? Check out the following list of FSU backgrounds from some colleges and departments across campus.
