If you’re thinking of joining in on Instagram’s new long-form video platform, IGTV, there’s a few things that you’ll want to know before you start uploading videos. Be sure to bookmark this one for future reference.
Matt Johnson has done the hard work so you don’t have to. In this video guide for Adobe Premiere Pro, he shares everything he’s learned from tinkering around with IGTV since its launch a couple weeks ago. Watch the video above to learn what size your IGTV videos should be, how to export your project with the best quality while under the file size limit, the trick behind uncropped cover photos, and more. It’s a solid gift of knowledge he’s giving away to help elevate the caliber of work on the new video hub.
As an aside, I want to know how Fstoppers readers have reacted to the launch of IGTV. Has anyone been uploading since day one? Have you completely ignored its existence? What are the best accounts to follow for photographers? Leave a comment below and tell me what you like or don’t like about the whole thing.
