Sometimes, our original video footage size doesn't quite match up with the dimensions that we need for posting or sharing. In these cases, resizing a video is a necessary step for optimizing content to an audience.
Resizing your videos so that they look perfect on every social media platform should be simple and free. Whether you are adjusting the dimensions, cropping, or changing the file size of your video, Kapwing has got you covered. Our editor is easiest way to resize any video online in just a few clicks.
Upload a video directly to Kapwing from your computer or mobile device. You can also paste a link to a video in the editor. Once uploaded, this video is the content you will be resizing.
Using the “Output Size” adjustments , resize your video to the size that you need. If you want a more exact selection, you can click “Custom Size” and input exact pixel dimensions. You can also select common sizes that match popular platforms like YouTube (16:9), Instagram Story (9:16), TikTok (9:16), and more.
Once your video is the perfect set of dimensions, hit “Export” and your content has been created with just a couple clicks. You can now watch, download, and share your resized video on social media.
TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook all have different size requirements for videos and we know how hard it can be to keep track of them all. You can finally stop worrying about the technical specs and focus on what matters most - your content!
Kapwing's free editor can help you resize a landscape video into a vertical format or add padding to a vertical video so that it looks nice in a landscape format. You can also crop a video to isolate the perfect part for a new post. Like many of the tools featured in Kapwing, you can start resizing videos for free without ever downloading any software or even signing up for an account.
Kapwing's selection of popular sizes for social media will optimize your image for likes and shares on each platform. A few clicks is all it takes to create an Instagram post, Facebook cover, and more. For more customization, you can adjust the padding to create a border and change the background color.
Review the final video size and when you're happy, export and download your video to save it to your device. Share your resized video with your own URL link or use Kapwing to share directly to social media platforms like Facebook, TikTok, or Twitter.
