The last time we checked, 9:16 was the go-to aspect ratio for vertical videos. But this is the internet, and things change fast. Now, there’s a new vertical aspect ratio in town: 2:3, and it’s the perfect fit for Pinterest.

Once our team saw how great video content looked in 2:3, we knew we had to offer the aspect ratio to our everyday editors. So, here it is – Introducing Vertical 2:3. Let’s jump into a quick tutorial, so you can start creating pin-perfect videos (did we mention they look great on Facebook too?).

Step 4. Export and share your video

When you’re happy with your video, click the Export button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. You can select 720p resolution (it’s the best for social videos) and feel free to compress to save space on your device and improve upload times. Then you can save it, store it on a cloud storage provider or share it across socials. We even have an integration that lets you share your video pins straight to Pinterest.
