Here’s the thing about making videos: there just isn’t one size that fits all. Depending on whether you’re working on a reaction video, making YouTube content, creating an Instagram story, or need a clip for your Facebook page cover, you’ll need to change the size and dimensions of your video every time. Sure, you could use the same video for each of these platforms, but it means the video will get cropped in all sorts of awkward ways.
To avoid this, simply reduce your video file size online to make sure your video looks amazing on every single platform out there. The best part is, using Kapwing Video Resizer, you can batch your content and easily make several different video sizes so you can instantly post them across the board.
Here’s how to do it in a few easy steps:
- Upload Your Video
- Resize and Crop
- Publish and Share
1. Upload Your Video
To get started, you’ll need to head over to the Kapwing Video Resizer and upload your video. If the video is already online, even better: simply copy and paste the URL to start editing. Once done, you will be redirected to your Video Resizer workspace.
2. Resize and Crop
Now that your video is ready, you can start working on reducing the file size to fit whatever format you need. To make things easier, Kapwing already has several useful presets: Instagram/Facebook story, YouTube, IGTV, and so on. All you need to do is pick the format you need, and your video will be automatically cropped. Next up, using the controls below, you can zoom your video in or out and position it just the way you want it. This will help avoid an awkward crop and make your video look great on any platform.
When you’re done, hit “Create”. Kapwing will take a few moments to process your videos.
3. Publish and Share
Ready to share your creation with the world? Simply hit “Download” and get your new video. Or, you can share it directly from your Kapwing workspace, making it even easier.
