We know many of you are now spending long days on video conference calls, when you would probably rather be in Tahoe. While we practice safe distancing and try not to stress our small but mighty healthcare systems, we have another option for you! Thanks to a fun background feature on Zoom and our good friend, photographer Justin Majeczky, now you can take your video calls from the mountains of Tahoe.
To download the photos scroll to the bottom of this post. Remember where you saved them so you can easily navigate to them when you get to the step to upload new backgrounds.
- Open a video and click the small up arrow next to the “Video” icon
- Once you click on the little arrow select “Choose a virtual background”
- Now you can add photos to your virtual background by clicking on the “+” and selecting the files you downloaded from Tahoe Fund. Remember to navigate to where you saved the files.
One last small tip- click on the video tab on the left menu bar, then unselect “mirror”
We know it is not the same as being in Tahoe, but we hope this brings a little joy to your days. Thankfully, the mountains and Lake will still be here when this passes. And with your continued support, Tahoe Fund will continue to work to ensure their long term preservation.
