Instagram has made it easy to make your videos on a smartphone and share them with your followers through the platform. After making a video, you can customize the video size, resolution, speed, and so on. Size refers to the number of pixels that make up the width and height of your photo or video. Like aspect ratio, size is expressed by two numbers, the first representing width and the second representing height. In this article, you'll learn about the perfect video size for Instagram. Some video resizers are also recommended to you.
