Zoom backgrounds

Zoom’s virtual background feature allows you to select and display an image or video behind you instead of showing your real surroundings. To allow Zoom to detect the difference between you and your background, this feature works best with:

  • Uniform lighting
  • A solid color behind you
  • Clothing that is a different color than your selected virtual background

In addition to Zoom’s default options, you can upload a custom virtual background. The College of Education and Human Development created some COEHD-branded backgrounds for use during lectures, appointments, meetings, etc.


In addition, you can find more generic UMaine-branded backgrounds at the Division of Marketing & Communications website.

Professional portraits

The Division of Marketing & Communications offers studio portrait sessions for faculty, staff and students twice a month. Due to demand, you must schedule your appointment in advance. The portrait sessions are held the first Tuesday of every month from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and the first Wednesday of the month from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

The Marketing and Communications photo studio is in 213 Alumni Hall. To schedule a portrait, which is free to members of the UMaine community, contact Marketing & Communications at 207.581.3743.

Those having portraits taken are asked to come dressed in attire suitable for a professional photo. Each portrait session takes under 10 minutes. There is a $20 fee for subsequent portrait sessions in the same academic year.

Digital copies of portraits will be provided. They also are added to the Marketing and Communications photo database.
