GIFS are so fun, they’re the most fun! GIFS are like the moving photos in Harry Potter. But sometimes there’s a particular part of a GIF you want to highlight or crop out. In this article I’ll show you how to resize GIFS in 3 easy steps:

  1. Upload GIF
  2. Resize your GIF
  3. Finish and share

Here’s my banana revealing itself GIF before and after I resized it:

Step 1: Upload your GIF

Kapwing’s Video Resizer is great for cropping and adjusting dimensions of videos!

Have the link to your GIF handy or have it saved to your device. Then, upload your GIF to Kapwing’s Video Resize tool.

Step 2: Resize your GIF

Now that your GIF is uploaded, choose your dimensions. You can pick whether you want it sized for Instagram (IGTV, post, and story), Snapchat, Youtube, or Facebook (portrait, landscape, and cover).

I chose 1:1 for Instagram. You can then choose your dimensions and zoom to your satisfaction. Use the arrows to shift your zoom in the direction of your choosing to crop into only a specific part of the GIF. Only choose No Crop if you want to change the dimensions without losing anything, you can select a black or white background.

Choose Crop or No Crop and Black or White

Step 3: Finish and share

When your GIF is finished processing, you can download it directly to your device or copy and paste the Kapwing link to share.

If you have an iPhone and are having trouble with the download, check out this article.
