Maggie Ann, I am so glad you're back.  I knew you were feeling a little sick a while back...but I had no idea.  Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery!

Thanks Jan - this is very timely as someone I know has suggested doing readings (as a sort of group) in Zoom. I've already learned how to use WhatsApp (for family), Teams (for work) and GoToMeeting (for my local committee meetings) in the last couple of weeks, so surely I can manage Zoom as well! I also saw the Canva thing mentioned above by Vanessa so that will be another thing to learn as my house is never good enough to be on show.

Worldcon is going to be virtual this year, and I'm still hoping to be on a few panels. (I may be delusional of course.)

Chromacam is pretty simple. You run it, and it sits there with a useless screen. You run your vid software, go into settings, choose Chromacam instead of your cam name, and the cam will start. The Chromacam screen will then change, you click on backgrounds, and drag whatever image you want into there, then click on it. Back in the Vid program, you should now be showing against the image, and not whatever mess is behind you.

Sometimes you need Manycam, which is just as simple, but this is a program designed to allow people to mix cams on multiple streamer sites at the same time, hence programs like Skype prefer it. So you get your cam and background selected in Manycam, and it gets used by programs like skype, when you choose Manycam as the input device.

Is easier than it sounds.

Thanks. I'll still in the process of updating Skype after moving over to W10.  :icon_rolleyes:
