Auto-resize your video without cropping speakers out

When speakers are too far off to one side, it seems impossible to salvage the footage for social media posts. Good news. Now, you can resize videos with our Speaker Focus tool. From scene to scene, Kapwing hones in on active speakers so they’re never cropped out of view.

How to Resize a Video

  1. Select the video layer

    Start a new project and upload a video. Then, click on the video to select its layer.

In a popup window, choose from several preset size ratios: YouTube (16:9), TikTok (9:16), Instagram Stories and Reels (9:16), Facebook posts (1.19:1), and more. You can also type in your own custom size and dimensions or drag the canvas to scale the video layer.

    Once your video is the perfect size, hit “Export Project.” You can now watch, download, and share your resized video on social media. Send the video link for anyone to watch, edit, comment, copy, and share in real time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How can I resize a video without losing quality or stretching?

To resize a video without losing its quality, try Kapwing’s video resizing tool. Use the Speaker Focus tool to automatically center active speakers in every clip. The Fit to Center and Fill and Crop tools also give you two options for resizing videos without stretching the content. Just select from Kapwing’s social media presets to get the right aspect ratio and play around with these easy-click tools to get the look you’re after.

How do I change the aspect ratio of videos?

To change the aspect ratio of a video, upload your content into Kapwing or paste the video’s URL. Then click “Resize Canvas” and choose the correct aspect ratio or social media platform you’re creating content for. Kapwing will then offer multiple ways to resize your video, including Fit to Center, Fill and Crop, and Speaker Focus, so you can zoom in on the right content or add margins. With Kapwing, it’s easy to test out different resizing options and choose your favorite. 

What’s the best tool to resize videos for social media?

Kapwing is the best platform for resizing videos for social media because it stores presets so you don’t have to remember the correct aspect ratios.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
