Resize any video to the correct Instagram format

Instagram videos are displayed in either a 1:1 or 4:5 aspect ratio (for posts) or a 9:16 aspect ratio (for Stories and Reels). Fortunately, Kapwing makes resizing videos for Instagram simple and easy for every format. Our automatic video resizer can convert videos to the perfect dimensions for Instagram Reels, Stories, and standalone video posts. Just open the resizing tool and choose the dimensions you need from the dropdown—you'll be done in two clicks.

We even have unique features like our Instagram Reels safe zones which help prevent your Reels content from being accidentally cut off or covered by video captions or other effects.

Once your video is resized for Instagram you can ensure it tailor-fits the platform and what people expect in Instagram videos. Try Kapwing's free video editor to add music and audio, automatic subtitles, video filters and effects, stickers and emoji, progress bars, voice overs, and so much more. Kapwing is a complete video editing platform for any content creator or brand that takes their Instagram videos seriously.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
