FEATURES

Downloadable Backgrounds

Virtual (Zoom/Teams etc) + Phone Backgrounds

Webb themed downloadable virtual backgrounds for desktop teleconferencing apps like Zoom/Teams and mobile phones in portrait orientation.

Versions

For most backgrounds there are 3 versions, an original version (ORIG), a darkened version (DARK), a darkened and slightly blurred version (DARK+BLUR). The latter 2 versions de-emphasize the background while keeping it recognizable, helping you to stand out! A few examples are demonstrated here by our Senior Project Scientist, Nobel Laureate John Mather.

Downloading

Select the individual file link that you want and it will be downloaded to your device. You can also choose the "ALL.zip" link to download all versions of an image. Then, unzip and choose the version you wish to use (original, dark, dark+blur).
