Want to get creative? Have an idea for your own Zoom background. It is super easy to create your own zoom background. All you need to do is find your image and crop it to an aspect ratio of 16:9. Cropping your image to 1280 x 720 pixels or 1920 x 1080 pixels are the proper dimensions that should work.
I like to use PicMonkey or Canva to do these types of edits. Both have free account options and are amazing tools!
