This recreational communication software has seen incredibly fast growth since launching in 2015, particularly within the gaming community who use Discord to chat while playing games online.

Discord has grown far beyond its original scope, into a busy social network functioning as a centralized hub for text, audio, and video chat functionality for any community. This online "hanging out" platform sees millions of users every day, having conversations in Discord constantly.

Unlike other social networks, there aren't many image size requirements for Discord, but it's important to know the ones that there are before getting started.

Large Discord servers have grown around different games, meme culture, hobbies, and other topics. The Discord app is centered around themed servers. Anyone can create a server and invite others to join.

While video games remain the most popular topic for Discord communities, the applications are endless. You can join communities based around a large variety of topics from art to novel writing, music, self-development, and more. As a Discord user, you can browse and choose your favorite channel, or multiple channels.

There is also a paid premium version of Discord called Discord Nitro, which offers all kinds of cool boosters like custom emojis, animated avatars, and more.

If you’re thinking about getting started on Discord, and particularly starting your own community, you'll need some visual assets for a cool Discord profile.

Below we'll offer a detailed guide for how to get the most out of your avatar on Discord, the best size for your Discord profile photo and server logo, as well as the optimal size for a Discord emoji.

While there aren't many requirements when it comes to the dimensions for Discord, such as you might find on visually-driven social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, you'll need to know the basic dimensions of Discord images to get your profile and servers going.

Example of a Discord Avatar

What are Bots and Servers on Discord?

If you're totally new to the platform, you might be wondering what Bots and Servers are. Do they require you to upload an image?

Don't worry, there are a few unique aspects of Discord, but it's a very user-friendly platform so you'll get accustomed to it easily.

Servers do require an image when you create them. Bots do not.

A Discord server is a community. Being a community-based platform, Discord is centered around specific groups. These might range from a 3-person friend group to a community of thousands around a specific topic.

Each community on Discord is called a server, and within Servers, you'll find Discord channels dedicated to different topics within that server group.  Anybody can create a server on Discord for free.

A Discord Bot is AI software that improves the user experience on Discord by helping to perform tasks. You can use them for moderation, statistics, announcements, playing music, and even to help you find the right meme for a conversation.

There are tons of Discord bots to choose from, and many people even make their own!

Discord Profile Picture Size

Your Discord profile picture (Discord PFP), also known as your Discord Profile Avatar, is how the rest of the world, or how other Discord users will see you and interact with you while you’re using the platform. Your Discord Avatar is a representation of you and should communicate something about who you are.

The avatar on Discord is a big drawcard of the platform, as it enables users to portray an identity of their choosing. You can use a photo, a graphic/ illustration, or even a GIF in your profile icon in Discord.

The recommended size for your discord profile picture is 128 × 128 pixels, but if you upload a larger one, Discord will cut it down to the proper size. You can use a JPG, PNG, or even a GIF for animated discord profile images.

Remember - If you upload a square profile image, Discord will crop it to a circle, so keep that in mind when you're choosing your image. Make sure the details of the icon are in the center so that it can be seen properly when cropped into a circle.

Essentially, your Discord avatar size is the same as the profile picture size stipulated above, because they are the same thing!

While you might encounter a file size limit of 8 MB with a general Discord file upload, (or 50 MB on Nitro) you don't need to worry too much about the file size for your profile photo, as it will be quite small.

Discord Icon Size / Discord Server Logo

To start a Discord server, you'll need an icon known as a Discord server logo.  Think of it as a profile image or avatar for your server. This circular icon will appear in your community members’ sidebar, and anywhere else your server is displayed for other Discord users to see.

The best Discord server icon size is 512 × 512 pixels, which, as with the avatar image, gets cropped into a circle. Discord supports PNG, JPG, JPEG, and even the GIF format.

When you're setting up your server, you can also add a Discord Banner Background Image and also a Discord Server Invite Splash Image. Discord gives you plenty of screen real estate for these images, allowing you to customize your server.  Discord Banner Background images can be up to 960 pixels wide by 540 pixels tall, and Server Invite Splash Images can be 1920 pixels wide to 1080 pixels tall.

You can use Vectornator as your Discord icon maker, with our wide range of tools for logo design you can create your Discord icon fast and easily.

Discord Emoji size and dimensions

If you are running your own server, the Discord app allows you to upload your own custom emoji icons to your server that your community members will be able to use to react to each other’s text comments.

The standard emoji size is quite small, at 32 × 32 pixels. But Discord allows you to upload an image up to 128 × 128 pixels, which it then resizes down to the standard size.

Uploading a larger high-quality image is an effective way to make sure that your emoji is of the highest possible quality.

If you don't have the option of custom emojis yet, you can still send the standard emojis you know from WhatsApp on your android, iPhone, and even on Desktop. We’ve got a preset template for this in Vectornator. Just be sure to upload your image with a transparent background!

Example of a Discord custom Emoji

A picture on discord for your profile or server is a pretty straightforward asset to create. It's always best to create an asset for any social platform in design software beforehand, though, to ensure you're always maximizing quality.

Luckily, we have all the templates you’ll ever need to create your own versions of these assets right in Vectornator!
