Mudgee Region Zoom backgrounds

Do you wish you were ‘Zoom’-ing from the beautiful Mudgee Region?

Download one of the beautiful Mudgee Region images below to use as your virtual background.

Points to note:

To make your image fit properly and look good, you need an image that matches the aspect ratio of your webcam. Most built-in webcams in modern laptops have an aspect ratio of 16:9, but some have (or can be set to) an aspect ratio of 4:3.

To find out the aspect ratio of your webcam in Windows 10, open the Camera app, then the Settings menu. Here you can verify and change your camera settings.

If you are on a Mac, click on the Apple icon > About this Mac > Support > Specifications. A web page will open with your system specs where you can look for information about your webcam.

If you’re unsure of how to use Zoom virtual backgrounds, you can learn how with this tutorial for Zoom desktop virtual backgrounds, and Zoom virtual backgrounds from your iPhone.

Note: to save the image files, wait for them to load in your screen then right-click and save as image (for desktop), or press and hold your finger on the image and an option to download will pop up (for iPhone).
