Infographic showing the same information about Instagram image sizes as displayed in this article.

Instagram post sizes (feed images):

  • Portrait: 1080 x 1350 pixels
  • Square: 1080 x 1080 pixels
  • Landscape: 1080 x 566 pixels
  • Portrait: 1080 x 1350 pixels
  • Square: 1080 x 1080 pixels
  • Landscape: 1080 x 566 pixels

Recommended image size for feed posts and carousels:

Take up maximum real estate in the newsfeed with images, graphics or carousels sized to portrait 1080 x 1350 pixels. Keep the main focus in the central square to ensure your profile grid looks good.

Instagram Reels sizes:

  • Full screen 1080 x 1920 pixels (Aspect ratio 9:16.)
  • Cover photo: 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Reels are cropped to a 1:1 image in your profile feed, so keep the main focus in the central square to ensure your profile grid looks good.
  • Reels are cropped to 4:5 in the newsfeed, so ensure the main focus of the video, including any added text, is in that area using Instagram's video builder guide lines.

Instagram Stories images:

  • Full screen – 1080 x 1920 pixels (Aspect ratio 9:16.)

Instagram Stories video length:

  • Story videos can be up to 60 seconds per story.
  • You can upload up to 100 stories per day.
  • For Instagram Newfeed: Meta recommends square (1:1) images and vertical (4:5) videos.
  • For Instagram Reels: Meta recommends full-screen vertical (9:16) videos of 30 seconds or less, including sound. Meta recommends leaving roughly 14% (250 pixels) of the top and bottom of the image free from text and logos to prevent them from being covered by the in-app design.
  • Instagram in-stream videos: Meta recommends full-screen vertical (9:16) videos of 15 seconds or less.
