6 Simple Steps To Quickly Crop and Resize Your Videos For TikTok

Are you looking to make your TikTok videos stand out and increase your chances of going viral? One of the ways to do this is by ensuring that your videos are properly cropped and resized to fit the platform’s format.

First, it’s important to understand the video size and format guidelines for TikTok. TikTok videos are recommended to be in MP4 format with a frame rate of 30 fps. To fit a mobile screen perfectly, they should also be in a 9:16 (vertical) or 16:9 (horizontal) resolution. By following these guidelines, you can increase your chances of getting your videos seen by a wider audience.
