To incorporate photos into a video, what size image should it be to have good quality and for it to fill the video screen?

I get the impression that YouTube has size limits, you should check them and then keep your resizing to those limits.

On the other hand, Vimeo I believe allows for larger/HD resolutions, so that you can get some great results by going "Full Screen", whereas doing that with YouTube gets pretty shabby results!

Thank you, I'll check out Vimeo!

Youtube allows uploading of full HD videos - 1080p. Dimensions are 1920×1080. This is 16:9 format, so you will need to crop your photos from top and bottom.

Hmm, that's interesting and good to know. It would be nice if people actually made "common" use of it!

To the OP, I just "stumbled" across a Vimeo timelapse video link posted by POTN member Heath, you might check it out and PM him about the details:

Old videos used to be mostly 4:3 (because they had a player with this proportion before), now people upload mostly 16:9.

I just "stumbled" across a Vimeo timelapse

Video aspect ratios are universal and all popular video hosting services use most common ones. Vimeo and YouTube use 16:9. Some use 4:3.

This video from Vimeo is 16:9. Here are a couple of dimensions for 16:9 high-definition video:

1920×1080 px and s smaller size 1280x720 px.

You should crop your images to the same dimensions as the video file you will be uploading:
Images should be cropped 1920x1080 for 1080 video.
1280x720 for 720 video.
Or 640x480 for 480 video.


50D / 28-1.8 / 100-2.8L / 200-2.8L / YN565Ex

That's easy! Thanks
