How to get the best out of your webinar backgrounds

  • Make sure your webinar space is properly illuminated to help the webinar platform distinguish you clearly from your background.
  • Upgrade to a high-quality webcam and think about using a green screen for better virtual background effects.
  • Avoid distracting or busy webinar backgrounds, and select ones that are professional and relevant to the topic of your session.
  • Opt for high-quality custom images as virtual backgrounds for your webinar to avoid pixelation, which can diminish the professionalism of your presentation.
  • Be mindful of how your clothing and the webinar background interact. Avoid wearing colors that blend into the virtual background because this can make you appear less distinct.
