Frequently asked questions

When you’re learning video editing for Instagram (whether for Reels, Stories, IGTV videos, or regular ole in-feed video posts), customizable templates and easy-to-use tools are clutch. That’s why we recommend WeVideo’s online Instagram video editor — or our video editing app, available for iOS and Android.

Quickly customize a ready-to-use video template, or DIY the whole thing. Either way, our video editing tools make it simple to get the job done right and to have your video posted to the Insta app in no time.

What are you waiting for? Take your video clips, polish 'em in our editor, and start earning those views, likes, and follows on Instagram!

The best video format for Instagram is an MP4. Since the max file size for Instagram videos is 4 GB, an MP4 file will help keep your file size at bay while still providing high-quality output.

In our video editing app (and our online editor as well), you can select your preferred file type (GIF or MP4) as well as your desired video resolution. Stick with the basic 480p or 720p for a quicker upload, or spring for 4K Ultra HD if you'll be repurposing this file outside of Instagram posts or other small-screen social media apps.

The best Instagram video size depends on where you’re posting your video.

While square videos (1080 x 1080 pixels) have always been Instagram’s go-to, you can also post portrait (1080 x 1350 px) or landscape videos (1350 x 1080 px) to your feed. If posting Instagram Stories or Reels, you’ll want a video sized 1080 x 1920 px.

Good Instagram video posts do three things: entertain, engage, and encourage (in that order). An entertaining video that speaks to who you are and is catered toward your audience will be engaging. Intentional use of text, hashtags, and a primary CTA will encourage your followers to take whatever step it is that you’d like them to take.

Keep in mind the type of video content you're creating, too. Reels, for example, tend to be a bit more off-the-cuff and casual (similar to a TikTok video), while Instagram ads are often more polished and professional-quality. Don't worry — both styles of video are easy to make in our video editing app.

Absolutely! Upload any number of photos from your device, cloud storage, or social media and then drag them onto your WeVideo Timeline. Then use our editing tools to cut, merge, and arrange the photos however you prefer.

Add your photos to a single track to create a traditional slideshow (with transitions and music, too), or spread them across multiple tracks to have photos layered on top of each other. Our editing options are beginner-friendly, no matter what you'd like to post to your Instagram feed.
