Resize your image to share with anyone, on any platform

Having to crop our pictures to fit the format of our favorite apps like Instagram or Facebook can be a burden. Even worse, we have to cut out half of our faces or our outer friends who stood at the ends of each side when we took group pictures.

Kapwing’s free online image resizer lets you resize any image by width and height to fit any social media platform. If you need to change image size, use our preset canvases for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. In Kapwing, you have full control over your image output size, image resolution, and its aspect ratio.

Perfect and share your favorite memories, videos, and pictures for social media without losing quality or parts of your content. A few clicks is all it takes to create an Instagram post, Facebook cover, and more. You can adjust the padding to create a border and change the background color.

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!
