Instagram Posting without White borders

When posting a vertical photo, I’m often getting the white borders on the edge when posting,

Tried using the “Crop instead of adding white borders” feature but it crops it instead of when I post manually from iPhone Instagram grabs the photo as is with no issues…

This is throwing off the aesthetic we are going for.

What would fix this?

Thank you guys!!

This is the photo:

its dimensions are 4000x6000

when posting on IG using “Crop instead of adding white borders” it crops it weird, when posting without “Crop instead of adding white borders” it has white borders, and when just opening the photo manually in iPhone to post it posts it perfectly…

Is it the dimensions?

Square Pic
1080 x 1080 px
Aspect ratio: 1:1
Format: JPG, PNG o GIF

Vertica Pic
1080 x 1350 px
Aspect ratio: 1:1.25

Duncanm the maximum resolution ratio of a portrait photo is 4:5 (width:height). So your 4000px width needs to have a maximum height of 5000px for it to upload and be displayed without the white side borders.

I usually crop and resize all portrait photos and videos to 1080x1350 (like @typhoon mentioned) before I upload.
