As video content in the web is becoming ubiquitous, the use of handy tools for a quick editing of short clips is becoming a frequent need for many of us. If we look at the main fashion ecommerce sites, we'll find revealing examples of how customised video content has entered the mainstream.

Since professional videos are expensive to produce, a wise practice is recycling and repurposing, by adapting media content to different channels -social and ecommerce platforms- and situations.

For instance, we are going to take this vertical video, ready to post in Instagram Stories, and transform this video for being ready for other uses.

Usually, a key part of repurposing consists of tuning the aspect ratio of the video. A simple resize -combined with either cropping or padding- is usually enough to use the same content in our home page and in social networks. Resizing and cropping the video we can get a video version ready to be shared in Youtube or Twitter.

Or rather we may add a color background making some padding and add a message that relates to our campaign.

Fortunately, for most scenarios of video repurposing we don't need advanced skills or access to expensive software packages. No signup, no watermark, and still a handful of video transformations -like resizing, padding, cropping or even adding text- are possible with high quality in a couple of clicks.

Let's see how to get the transformations above using Abraia's Social Media Resizer in four simple steps:

1. Upload the video to the resizer tool

We upload our video to the resizer tool, which will show it as the padded square version for Instagram (without cut off our content).

We change the preset to Youtube or to any specific size of our choice, and we select between crop and pad mode.
