What Are the Best TikTok Ad Sizes for Effective Digital Advertising?

Introduction: The Crucial Role of Ad Sizes on TikTok

In the fast-paced world of TikTok, where content consumption is high and attention spans are short, the size of your ads can make or break their effectiveness. Understanding the optimal ad sizes for TikTok is not just a technical requirement—it's a strategic advantage that can significantly enhance ad visibility and user engagement. This article explores the key ad dimensions for TikTok and why they matter in the landscape of digital advertising.

TikTok Ad Formats and Sizes

TikTok Ad Sizes - In-feed Ads

In-Feed Ads: The Staple of TikTok Advertising

TikTok's in-feed ads are the bread and butter of its advertising platform, appearing seamlessly within the user's For You page. These ads need to be:
- Dimensions: 1080x1920 pixels
- Aspect Ratio: 9:16
Optimal sizing for in-feed ads ensures they look native to the platform, maintaining the immersive experience that keeps users engaged.

Brand Takeover Ads: Capturing Instant Attention

Brand takeover ads appear when a user first opens TikTok, taking over the screen for a few seconds before turning into an in-feed video ad. For these impactful ads:
- Dimensions: 1080x1920 pixels
- File Types: JPG, PNG for images; MP4, MOV for videos
These ads are designed for high-impact visibility and thus require high-resolution formats to ensure the best visual quality.

TopView Ads: Dominating the View

TopView ads, similar to brand takeovers, allow longer video content (up to 60 seconds) that appears as the first in-feed post after 3 seconds. These ads leverage the same full-screen format:
- Dimensions: 1080x1920 pixels
Ensuring these ads are correctly sized allows brands to capture and retain viewer attention with longer narratives.

Why Ad Sizes Matter in Digital Advertising on TikTok

Enhancing User Experience

Properly sized ads blend seamlessly into the TikTok feed, enhancing the user experience by maintaining the flow of content. Ads that adhere to the platform's size guidelines appear more professional and are less likely to disrupt the user experience, fostering better engagement.

Maximizing Visibility and Impact

The right ad size ensures that your content is displayed correctly, without any important elements being cropped out or distorted. On a visually driven platform like TikTok, where users swipe quickly through content, having your ad sized correctly means it will capture attention effectively and convey the intended message before the user moves on.

Improving Ad Performance Metrics

Ads that are optimized for size and format typically perform better in terms of engagement rates and conversion metrics. This optimization ensures that the ad content is fully visible and engaging, making users more likely to interact with it, follow the call to action, and convert into leads or customers.

Conclusion: Leveraging Ad Size for Strategic Advantage

On TikTok, where digital advertising competition is fierce, understanding and implementing the optimal ad sizes is essential for success. By ensuring that ads are perfectly tailored to fit TikTok’s dynamic environment, marketers can enhance ad effectiveness, improve user engagement, and ultimately drive higher returns on investment.


In a world where digital presence is paramount, leveraging the right ad sizes on TikTok can significantly amplify your advertising efforts. By focusing on precise ad dimensions and engaging content, brands can effectively connect with their audience and achieve their marketing goals. Ready to optimize your TikTok ads for maximum impact?

It saved me hours

When I discovered this tool I pretty much saw it as magic. It saved me hours, gave me lots of new graphics to use, and was easy to get started with. The only thing I'd change is having the option to get specific sizes for use in advertising where I need 4-5 variations. The sizes at the time that were offered are just horizontal, square, vertical, but I need to be exact with my measurements.

The quality of the AI blew me away

I have been doing creative design for the past 8 years and I can tell you that this app is different. The quality of the AI blew me away, as I never use these features because from my experience they are always just BAD. The technology doesnt work yet and the results are... not good :) In case of adcreative the AI tool is saving me so much time and I use these designs to deliver advertisements for my clients who are promoting 6 and 7 figure businesses. That means these designs work and can run a business, can't tell that about any other app. Enterprise Enterprise Program, a bespoke solution tailored for businesses seeking to boost
