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.

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.
