How to Resize you video for Instagram

This feature is available for all plans.

Before you upload your video to Instagram, you will need to know what aspect ratios you can upload to Instagram.
The most commonly used one is the square 1:1 , then we have the 4:5 portrait aspect ratio and the 16:9 landscape aspect ratio.

For Story and IGTV or a REEL you will need to make sure that the aspect ratio is 9:16.
