Alpena Zoom Backgrounds

Under the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” visiting with family, friends, and co-workers virtually has become a daily way of staying close. You can show off the Alpena area by using one of these virtual backgrounds!

You can find instructions for downloading/using virtual Zoom photos below. The virtual background feature in Zoom works best with a solid color behind you, or you can place a solid color piece of paper over the computer’s camera and it will just show the background photo to the other participants.
