Frequently Asked Questions
What aspect ratio is TikTok?
The aspect ratio for TikTok is 9:16, which is typically 1080x1920 in pixel format. For best results, stick to this aspect ratio. Users expect to see vertical videos. Content that has been cropped so the subject fills the screen usually performs better than uploading horizontal content to TikTok.
How can I make videos bigger on TikTok?
To resize a video for TikTok, upload your video into Kapwing. From the Project tab on the right-hand menu, select “Resize Canvas” and then “TikTok.” This will allow you to crop a full-screen, vertical snippet of your video or to add space above and below a horizontal video.
How do I make TikTok videos landscape?
In TikTok, click the plus sign and upload a landscape video. Click “Adjust clips” and then the rotate icon. Post your video. Users must rotate their phones to best view a landscape video, so unless you need the full scene, it’s recommended that crop your video vertically.
How do I format videos for TikTok?
Film vertically with your phone or use a camera with a 9:16 aspect ratio. To format an existing horizontal video for TikTok, use Kapwing’s TikTok resizer to fill the entire screen by cropping your video vertically. Or, add a solid color above and below your horizontal video inside Kapwing.
How to make full screen videos on TikTok?
To make full screen videos, upload a horizontal video and click the rotate icon in the “Adjust clips” section so that users must rotate their phones to view it right-side up. Or, use Kapwing to crop a vertical section of your horizontal video and upload that to TikTok. This way, users get a full screen view of a narrower section.
