Why You Should Resize Your Instagram Videos
Before you get started posting videos to instagram, make sure you know how to post on Instagram. Once you've mastered that, you can also learn how to post multiple photos on Instagram. Now, you're ready to move onto videos!
Instagram post size varies depending on what you are posting, making it confusing at first! Videos for Instagram Stories/Reels have recommended aspect ratios of 9:16 vertical. Videos for Instagram feeds have a recommended ratio of 1:1 square
You also have the option to upload vertical videos to your feed. These don’t have the same ratios as stories and reels. These video feed posts have aspect ratios of 4:5 vertical.
With all these numbers floating around in your head, things can get overwhelming, fast! We want to help take the guesswork out of creating videos for Instagram. You create and we’ll resize it for you!
So, now you’ve made a video you want to share with the world! Great! You can easily resize your video using our online video editor.
We offer loads of free templates to get you started! Once you’re ready to take it to the next level, you can check out our Pro version. This opens up so many possibilities for making your videos stand out on Instagram!

Instagram stories are a great way to connect with your followers. Since Instagram introduced Stories, people have increased their time on the app. Over 400 million people spend around 28 minutes per day on Instagram.
Open the Mojo app and select “Story”. From here you will choose the Instagram post template you want. Upgrading to Mojo Pro gives you endless options for templates!

Resizing For Instagram Reels
The video size for Instagram Reels is the same as for Stories. Both should be vertical videos. Though you will edit them differently using our app.
When you open up the Mojo app and come to the home page, select “Reels” with the Instagram Icon. This is where you will see the difference between Reels vs. Stories.
For Instagram Reels you want your video to go the full width and height of the phone screen. Select your template and upload your video by clicking the “Add” icon. Drag your video into the frame where you want it to appear.
We have templates that auto-caption your videos for you. You can also add text and graphics to these videos before saving or posting.
Square Video Sizing For Instagram
If you want a traditional square Instagram video, we’ve got you covered there too! Open up the app and choose “Square” from the design options. Square videos allow you to have a bit more control over what your feed looks like.
Choose from our free or Pro templates (there are so many more once you upgrade to Mojo Pro!) for your video. Click the “Add” icon and upload your video to the frame. Drag your video so it is centered in the square frame and that’s it!
