Instagram Image Sizes Guide

On a social network, such as Instagram, everything is associated with visual content. That’s why Instagram is a different type of platform and many brands are using it to promote their products and services. Instagram allows you to create square images, portrait or landscape photos, or even post videos to engage and interact with your audience.

Square Images (1:1)

Before Instagram was so big, you used to be able to publish only square images. At this moment, you can post portrait or landscape photos as well. However, if you’re still one of the ones who love to have a very Instagramish Instagram profile, the square image dimensions are 1080 pixels x 1080 pixels.

Portrait and Landscape Instagram Images

If you are not the square image type of person, you should know that Instagram offers you 2 other different options: portrait or landscape images. All you have to do is keep your visuals at 1080 pixels in width. For portrait images, the size is 1080 pixels x 1350 pixels, while the landscape image is set at 1080 pixels x 566 pixels.

Stories

Vertical content is on the rise thanks to smartphones and Instagram stories. You can create videos, photos, text or animated images that “roll” for 24 hours before “expiring”. If not saved, stories will be automatically deleted from your account. If you want to create Stories for Instagram, you have to make sure that you will use the most fitting size: 1080 pixels x 1920 pixels (aspect ratio 9:16).
