Many websites offer free backgrounds for video talks, but there are few. If you don’t want to settle for a limited choice of backgrounds, I would recommend a few stock photo sites to help you pick the best you like. Go to these sites only if you have time, because choices are plentiful. The best part is that all these images are completely free to use!
Zoom offers many virtual backgrounds on their official site. It is easy to pick a professional background to suit your needs.
