Earlier this year we brought you a variety of Huntsville-centric Zoom backdrops, so you could rep the Rocket City in any of your virtual meetings, happy hours, long-distance get togethers, birthdays, or any of the other laundry list of activities that have taken a virtual turn in 2020! Now that the year is almost over and we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday season, we decided to give you an early present: a set of new Huntsville Christmas backdrops, full of seasonal Rocket City scenes like Skating in the Park, Tinsel Trail, and more. Consider it our gift to you! 

As a refresher, here’s how to change your background on Zoom: 

  1. Find your favorite Huntsville holiday photo backgrounds below and save them to your computer or device. This will work on your computer and mobile Zoom app.
  2. Once you're logged into Zoom, open your account settings or click the up arrow next to “Start Video” in the lower left corner. 
  3. Select “Choose a Virtual Background” then press the plus sign to upload the photo or video of your choice. 
  4. Tip - make sure "mirroring" is turned off so text doesn't appear backwards!

If you run into issues using a backdrop, use a solid color blanket or sheet to make your own green screen. For further instructions on setting up your virtual background, please reference Zoom's official guidelines.

You’ll be ready to launch in no time!
Click on the images below to download your favorite Huntsville holiday backgrounds. (Tip: once the image pops up, right-click to save it to your desktop). If you use a Huntsville background during a meeting or group chat, share with us on social media using the hashtag #iHeartHsv!
