What are the best sizes for Instagram images?

When sharing on Instagram, you can post square images, portrait shots, or landscape photos. But the aspect ratio rules for your Instagram posts are different than the ratio for an Instagram Stories post. When resizing images, keep these pixel aspect ratios in mind.

Instagram profile: 110 x 110 pixels, 1:1 aspect ratio.

Instagram post: 1080 x 1080 pixels, 1:1 aspect ratio.

Instagram stories: 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 aspect ratio.

Customize your Instagram profile picture.

Instagram profile pictures appear in a circle frame, so optimize your desired profile photo by cropping it into a square shape. Choose the 1:1 square aspect ratio when resizing your image, or type in custom measurements. Elevate your profile photo by personalizing it with graphics and colors that are on-brand for your page. Upload your image to Adobe Express to remove the background, add a new backdrop, sprinkle in some icons and graphics, and so much more.

Make outstanding Instagram posts.

To resize your images for Instagram, use a 1:1 square shape, a 4:5 ratio for vertical posts, and a 1.91:1 ratio for horizontal posts. The Adobe Express image resizer has all these sizes preset for you, so you can resize your images instantly and waste no time sharing them with your followers. And remember, all posts will be cropped to a square shape in your feed, so be sure to adjust your image cropping as necessary to keep your subject near the center of your image.

Create stunning and share-worthy Instagram Stories.

While images can be manually cropped and sized to fit a story, the recommended full screen size for Instagram Stories content is 1080px by 1920px (a 9:16 aspect ratio). This applies to both photos and videos. Easily resize your images with the image resizer, and then head to Adobe Express to personalize your images even further with icons, graphic assets, typography, animated stickers, and so much more.

What image format is best for Instagram?

Use JPGs when sharing images to your Instagram account. Your photos will automatically be converted to JPGs when uploading, but starting with a JPG file can help preserve your image quality. Instagram may also compress your photo, so stay close to the optimal resolution specifications or use the Adobe Express image converter to create a high-quality JPG.
