When you upload a cover photo for a video on IGTV you can’t replace or edit it once the video is live. So you better make sure it looks good right away. I created a Photoshop PSD template/cheat sheet that includes all Instagram elements, dimensions and a title safe area. I use to make my own IGTV cover photos.
Official IGTV Cover Photo Specs:
- 420 x 654 pixel resolution or a 1:1.55 ratio
- JPEG (only format supported now)
- Must be less than 4MB
