Use this Instagram Reels overlay to prevent your Reel from being covered by your caption and the comments section
We’ve done all the work for you, and there’s no need to download anything. This Instagram Reel overlay is sized perfectly to fit within the app’s format.
The last thing you want is for people to scroll past your Reel because they can’t read your subtitles or they can’t see what’s happening because the likes, comments, and share sidebar is covering your video. Simply apply the masked overlay to preview your Reel and adjust your subtitles, stickers, and any other elements your video has before you upload it to Instagram. Finally, no more confusing Instagram grid graphic layouts or worrying about lower thirds.
Get started by creating a blank canvas or by uploading your video to Kapwing.
Select the Instagram icon in the right-hand sidebar under the “Safe Zones” section. This will automatically resize your canvas to the recommended size of a 9:16 aspect ratio.
Continue editing your Instagram Reel or export your project and upload it directly to Instagram. Finally, you don’t have to worry about anything covering your video again.
Get people to stop scrolling when they come across your Instagram Reel. Creating a video or repurposing one into a short clip for Reels is already time-consuming. Never have to crossmatch Reels layouts and your video again.
Kapwing’s Instagram Reels transparent overlay resizes your video to fit the Reels width and length automatically. As an all-in-one video editor, Kapwing also equips you with Instagram video editing tools like auto-subtitles, animated text, crop, access to a copyright-free media library, and more. So, you can resize or move text and stickers around to make sure they get seen on your video.
Make every Instagram Reel you have safe from getting covered by the caption and any buttons. This graphic overlay also works for sponsored Instagram Reels ads, so your ideal customers see your entire video and are compelled to make the next step you want them to take. It’s never been this easy to make your Instagram Reels title safe and text safe.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
