## How to Calculate Aspect Ratio?

Calculating the aspect ratio is very simple you have to divide the original height by the original width after that multiply that number by the new width in order to get the new height.

Now we are going to illustrate to you an example by using the aspect ratio formula that will help you get the answer what is my aspect ratio? You can also try our aspect ratio calculator for this.

### Example:

Imagine you have an original image with a height of 1080 pixels and a width of 1920 pixels. You want to resize it to a new height of 800 pixels while preserving the aspect ratio.

### Solution:

Let's calculate the aspect ratio:

Step 1: Take the original width and height.

Original Height = 1080 pixels
Original Width = 1920 pixels

Step 2: Divide the original height by its width.

1080 / 1920 = 0.5625

Step 3: Multiply the obtained number by the new height to find the new width.

0.5625 x 800 = 450 pixels

So, the result is that the new width should be 450 pixels to keep the aspect ratio intact. This way, your image will maintain its intended proportions even after resizing. If you want to get instant results then you can try our pixel ratio calculator for this.

## FAQs:

### What is aspect ratio?

Aspect ratio simply means the proportion or shape of something, like a picture or screen. It tells you how wide and tall an image or screen is compared to each other. For example, a TV with a 16:9 aspect ratio is wider than it is tall, while an old-style TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio is more square. It's like describing the shape of a rectangle by comparing its sides.

### What is the aspect ratio for an Instagram Profile?

The aspect ratio for an Instagram profile is 1:1, which means that the profile picture should be square. Instagram will automatically crop your profile picture to a square, so make sure your subject is in the center, and avoid placing any important information in the corners.

### Does changing aspect ratio affect quality?

Yes, changing the aspect ratio of an image or video can affect quality. When you change the aspect ratio, you are either stretching or squishing the image or video to fit a new shape. This can cause the image or video to become pixelated or distorted.
