Gadgetren – Reels and Stories on Instagram are now increasingly being used by many people, both to share their activities and to simply interact with followers to give an impression to increase followers.
Both of them also have their own content size so that when uploaded it can be pleasing to the eye, neat, and attractive so that viewers also want to comment on every Reels and Story post that is made or even give a like sign.
If Reels and Stories are made with the right size, then the video and images will look clear and not cropped. Therefore, it is very important that we know what the right size is to post good Reels and Stories.
To make Reels and Stories on Instagram with good results and not messy you need to know the standard size ratio and resolution.
The Right Size of Reels and Instagram Stories
Actually Reels and Story follow the screen size of most Android and iOS mobile phones. The size ratio for both images and videos is 9:16 while the resolution size should be 1080 x 1920 pixels.
Besides being able to post videos and photos, Reels and Stories can also embed other types of content such as gifs, stickers, effects, music, and text. For accounts that already have a large number of followers, Stories can also be linked to certain links so that visitors can tap on the link and will be directed to the link page.
The difference between Reels and Story is only the duration of the broadcast. Reels posts are practically permanent and will appear in the Feed, your profile page, and the Reels tab. While the Story will be automatically deleted for 24 hours, but you can still see it again through the Story Archive.
The ratio is the ratio between the width and height of the image. Usually the ratio is written x:y where x means width and y means height. If the ratio is 1:1, then the width and height are the same. Likewise, the ratio is 16:9, so the width is almost twice the height.
While the resolution is a very important benchmark in an image and video. If the resolution is low, the resulting image will be unsightly, blurry, cracked, and so on.
Conversely, if the resolution is high, the better the resulting image so that those who see it will be satisfied to enjoy the content presented on the Instagram Feed.
Resolution is the arrangement of a pixel that composes the width and height of the image. This will affect the image quality. There are many examples of resolutions used such as 1080 x 1920 pixels, 1080 x 1080 pixels, 600 x 600 pixels, and many more.
