How Do You Upload a Reel Video on Instagram Without Losing Quality?

Are you tired of losing video quality when uploading Reels on Instagram? We’ve got you covered with this step-by-step guide on how to upload a high-quality Reel video on Instagram.

Step 1: Create Your Reel

The first step is to create your Reel video. You can record a new video or choose an existing one from your camera roll. Make sure the resolution of your video is at least 1080 pixels to ensure high-quality playback.

Step 2: Edit Your Video

Once you have your video ready, it’s time to edit it. You can use any editing software of your choice, such as Adobe Premiere Pro or iMovie, to add filters, effects, and captions.


If you’re adding text overlays to your video, make sure the font size is large enough to be legible on a mobile screen.

Step 3: Export Your Video

After editing your video, export it in the highest possible resolution and quality. If you’re using Adobe Premiere Pro, select H.264 as the format and set the bitrate to a minimum of 10 Mbps.


The higher the bitrate, the better the quality of your video.

Step 4: Save Your Video

Save your edited and exported video to your camera roll or desktop.

Step 5: Upload Your Video on Instagram

Now that you have your high-quality Reel ready, it’s time to upload it on Instagram.

  • Open the Instagram app and tap on the “+” icon in the bottom center of the screen.
  • Select “Reels” from the list of options.
  • Select your video from the camera roll or desktop.
  • Trim your video to the desired length (up to 60 seconds).
  • Add text, stickers, or music to your Reel if desired.
  • Hit “Share” and you’re done!


Make sure you have a stable internet connection when uploading your Reel to ensure maximum video quality.


Using these simple steps, you can now upload high-quality Reels on Instagram without losing any of the original video quality. Remember to create and edit your videos in the highest possible resolution and bitrate, and ensure that the font size of any text overlays is legible on a mobile screen. Happy Reeling!
