You can now publish Reels from Tailwind to Instagram! πŸŽ‰

Are you wondering where to locate this feature and how to do it? Well, look no further!

  1. Select Feed/Reel Post

Click the "Upload or Create Post" button from the home or draft tab of your dashboard. Then select "Upload Media" to browse your computer for media or drag and drop a video to upload.

You can then select which platform you'd like to schedule the video for. To schedule a Reel, select 'IG Feed Post'. Double-check that the correct profile is selected if you have more than one Instagram connected.

2. Make Sure Reel Is Selected

Upon uploading videos, the real box will automatically be checked. In order to publish a regular video, you will need to uncheck this box. If the box is grayed out, this means that your video is longer than 60 seconds or outside the 4:5 to 16:9 aspect ratio and can only be published as a reel.

3. Schedule The Reel

Reels can go out by auto post or post reminder. They will essentially be sent out the same way a feed post is! 😁

Recommended Aspect Ratio, Video Size, and Time

Much like Instagram Stories, Instagram Reels are designed to be viewed vertically, full-screen, and on mobile. With this in mind, it's best to create content with an aspect ratio of 9:16 and with a size of 1080 pixels x 1920 pixels. Instagram reels can be up to 90 seconds long
