  2. Set the best video size for your needs

    The easiest way to resize your recording is by choosing the corresponding option among the ready ones. Firstly, select a social medium in the first drop-down menu on the right of the page, then – the post type in the field below.

    You can also choose the “Custom” option. If you decide on an aspect ratio, just set a width in pixels, and height will be defined automatically. Alternatively, hit the “Aspect ratio: not set” option and insert any dimensions you want manually.

    Choose the crop option:

    • fill the frame by zooming the recording without leaving sidebars;
    • fit the whole picture into the frame and choose the background colour.
