Hello: 

When I'm on a Teams conference call, I'd like a custom image as my background.  For example, the Eiffel Tower.  

 

Per a previous conversation, I tried to salve images to the upload folder here:

Save your image /s in the Uploads folder below

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME_HERE\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads

 

I was not successful.  Any suggestions?

I uploaded images, matched the size and .png file format but my images don't show up in Teams.
