The all-in-one video editor for Instagram

Make Instagram videos that stand out

Most video editors aren't built with Instagram and social media in mind. Kapwing is different—we're a web-based editor used by content creators and marketing teams who need to succeed on Instagram. That's why our Instagram video maker includes must-have features like magic subtitles, trending templates, one-click resize and repurposing, brand kits, and unique tools like our Instagram Reels safe zones overlay. With Kapwing, you can create engaging content for Instagram faster than ever before.

Repurpose Instagram content to any platform

The secret to social media? Smart repurposing that takes winning posts from one platform and shares them to another. With Kapwing, content repurposing is made easy. Use our AI-powered tools to automatically resize and format your existing Instagram content to republish on other social media channels. Or, take successful videos from YouTube and TikTok and reformat them to work perfectly as Instagram videos, Reels, and Stories. Create once and publish everywhere with Kapwing.

Try our built-in Instagram video templates to start

There's nothing more intimidating than a blank page—or an empty video editor. With Kapwing, you can start with any of our dozens of video templates for Instagram and customize them to fit your style and brand. Or, try out Kapwing's one-click editing options for video details like subtitles, in-video images, emoji, progress bars, voice over and "storytime" tools, and much more.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

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!
