How to resize an image or video for Instagram
Intagram crops all your vertical images and videos to a 4:5 aspect ratio. This means that
when you post a 9:16 image or video is cut off. To preserve the content in a consistent way, one of the the
best solutions is to pad all your images and videos.
The optimal size to use on Instagram is 1080 pixels wide and a square (1:1) or vertical
(4:5) aspect ratio. So to get the best quality you must post your videos square with a resolution of 1080x1080
or vertical with a resolution of 1080x1350. Moreover, have into account that the video must have a maximum
length of 60 seconds and a maximum frame rate of 30 FPS.
With Abraia you can easily resize your images and videos before publishing to Instagram with the best
qualilty, and works online from your desktop or mobile phone.
1. Upload the image or video to the resizer tool
Go to the editor and upload the vertical or portrait photo or video you want to
post. When you are using the app in your selfphone, you can also record the video at the moment to upload the
video, and use the app to trim and adjust the duration fo the video. The video will be peview with a square
aspect ratio, using a white background by default.
2. Resize the video for Instagram without cropping
The video is automatically padded to fit to Instagram without cropping. Change the resize mode to get the
square cropped version of the video, or select the Instagram portrait preset to take up more vertical space,
posting the 4:5 vertical version for Instagram.
You can also change the background color, if you want to use another color instead of the default white color.
Or add your logo or some text to overlay your message on the video.
3. Download or directly post the video to Instagram
When the preview matches what you want your post to look like, click the download button on the desktop or the
share button on the phone (at the top right hand corner). Wait for a while to create the video, it can take
some seconds, and directly share your video on Instagram.
After resizing your post, you can download or post it on Instagram if you are using a mobile device. You cand
directly share the image or video on Instagram from your mobile phone. Since your photo/video now has a 1:1
aspect ratio, you can publish it without cropping.
