Instagram is a social media platform famous for sharing pictures, stories and short videos and IG TV videos. The content on Instagram is diverse and everyone can use it to share and influence people through their style, content, and opinions. It has become one of the most used and loved platforms for people, especially the younger generation. To share pictures on Instagram you have to adhere to certain guidelines as well relevant to size of the pictures and frames of your pictures and videos. When uploading a picture to Instagram, there is a feature that automatically resizes the pictures.
- The aspect ratio that Instagram used to allow was 1:1 but it has evolved from the initial model and has allowed the users to upload images in both portrait and landscape mode.
- The aspect ratio of Portrait mode is 4:5 and for landscape it’s 1.91:1 and of course the initial square aspect ratio of 1:1 is also permitted.
If the picture you want to post does not already adhere to the above sizes, Instagram automatically crops your pictures and resizes them to fit in the frame. To upload such photos new users must wonder how to resize images for Instagram.
Following is a procedure to upload the picture and automatically resize it through Instagram.
- Tap + button at the bottom center and scroll down the post category.
- Select the photo you want to upload from your gallery or you might take a new picture.
- Once you have decided which photo to upload select it, you will be shown the frame
- Here you can either resize it as you like
- Instagram will crop your picture and resize it. You can also zoom it or drag it upwards and downwards as you like to crop the resized photo.
- The size of the photo can be altered by pressing the option at bottom left of the picture. It provides two sizes of either landscape or portrait mode
Auto cropping usually does not give a refined aesthetic idea to your whole profile and people sometimes prefer that their pictures shouldn’t be cropped while resizing them. On Instagram, it really matters what your overall profile looks like. A well-arranged and stylish profile helps in a gain of more followers and likes on Instagram and videos that are aesthetically appealing. It also attract more Instagram views and following. If you don’t like your pictures to be cropped and want the picture with the original frame to be uploaded, there is nothing to really worry about. There are a lot of software and applications that can be used to resize the pictures according to the desired size i.e. 1:1, 4:5 or 1.91:1 aspect ratios, without affecting the resolution of the pictures. Some of these software are Inshot, Square InPic, Square Pic, and No Crop & Square for Instagram. When you have resized the picture from another application, you can save it in your gallery and simply use the same procedure to upload your photo.
