Crop a Video Smaller for Free Online

Croppng a video is an important task for many creators. Some may want to draw emphasis to a more important section of the video. Others might want to crop in order to hide sensitive information. And many just want to crop a video to remove a watermark in the corner or an ugly border that may have showed up at some point in their editing process.

Whatever the task at hand, Kapwing has the tools to support your workflow easily, completely online, and for free! This online video cropper will allow you to crop, resize, cut sections out, and so much more all in one place.

Choose from the preset dimensions for social media, or keep your crop unconstrained and drag the crop buttons to cut out the exact portion of the video you want to use. When you're done cropping your video, you can use the Kapwing Studio to add text, music, animations, and any other edits your resized video needs.

If you want to resize your video to exact dimensions, you can use the Studio to input exact pixels for your video's aspect ratio, so it can fit perfectly wherever you want to use it. Place your resized videos in any location from IGTV to TikTok without cutting off important parts, leaving bars on the sides, or having distracting watermarks interfere.
