How do I make a big photo fit on Instagram?

. 5 min read

Yesterday I tried to upload a photograph to share on my Instagram travel accounts.

This was the original picture:

I know this is a tall photo. Its sizes are 3000 x 5000.

Of course, I didn't expect to fit this picture on Instagram perfectly because a regular Instagram post size is 1080 x 1080.

Still, I need a better adjustment. This is how Instagram cropped my picture:

A Statue of Liberty without the torch? No, this is obviously not what I am looking for!

So, I checked other options. I clicked on opposite arrows on the bottom left of the photograph.

Instagram dimension options are 1:1, 4:5, and 16:9.

1:1, as you see, make my Statue of Liberty without the torch.

4:5 makes this:

It is closest to the original one but it adds white borders.

And, 16:9 is this:

Where is the rest of my Statue of Liberty?

Finally, I tried the option "Original".

The option "Original" adds white borders to my picture. So, this doesn't work for me!

So what can I do? How can I get a tall picture to fit on Instagram?

I need a tool to crop my tall images for Instagram as I want.

And I found it!
