Instagram Size & Dimensions for 2022

When sharing photos and videos on Instagram, there are two main things to keep in mind: ASPECT RATIO and SIZE.

Aspect ratio refers to the width of a picture in relation to its height.

Size (or resolution) refers to the number of pixels that make up the width and height of your photo or video.

The Instagram main feed allows you to post square, horizontal, and vertical photos or videos under 1-minute length. Sadly animated GIFs are not supported by Instagram, but we recommend exporting your GIFs as MP4s.
