    Using the “Output Size” adjustments , resize your video to the size that you need. If you want a more exact selection, you can click “Custom Size” and input exact pixel dimensions. You can also select common sizes that match popular platforms like YouTube (16:9), Instagram Story (9:16), TikTok (9:16), and more.

  3. Share your resized video

    Once your video is the perfect set of dimensions, hit “Export” and your content has been created with just a couple clicks. You can now watch, download, and share your resized video on social media.

Change Video Size Online for Free

TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook all have different size requirements for videos and we know how hard it can be to keep track of them all. You can finally stop worrying about the technical specs and focus on what matters most - your content!

Kapwing's free editor can help you resize a landscape video into a vertical format or add padding to a vertical video so that it looks nice in a landscape format. You can also crop a video to isolate the perfect part for a new post. Like many of the tools featured in Kapwing, you can start resizing videos for free without ever downloading any software or even signing up for an account.

Kapwing's selection of popular sizes for social media will optimize your image for likes and shares on each platform. A few clicks is all it takes to create an Instagram post, Facebook cover, and more. For more customization, you can adjust the padding to create a border and change the background color.

Review the final video size and when you're happy, export and download your video to save it to your device. Share your resized video with your own URL link or use Kapwing to share directly to social media platforms like Facebook, TikTok, or Twitter.

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!
