How Do I Add a Background Image to a Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Are you looking to add some personality to your Discord server? One way to do that is by adding a background image!

A background image can give your server a unique and visually appealing look. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding a background image to your Discord server.

Step 1: Prepare Your Background Image

Before we begin, it’s important to have a suitable background image ready. The ideal dimensions for a Discord server background image are 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels tall.

Make sure the image is in a format supported by Discord, such as JPEG or PNG. You can create your own custom image using graphic design software, or find one online that suits your server’s theme.

Step 2: Accessing Server Settings

To add a background image to your Discord server, you need administrative privileges. Once you have those, follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord and navigate to the desired server.
  2. Click on the server name at the top-left corner of the screen to open the dropdown menu.
  3. Select “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu. This will open the server settings page.

Step 3: Customizing Server Appearance

On the left-hand side of the server settings page, you will find different customization options for your server. Scroll down until you see “Overview” and click on it.

Upload Background Image

Under “Overview,” locate the “Server Template” section. Here you will find an option called “Upload Background.” Click on it to open the file upload dialog box.

Note: Only users with Nitro Boosted servers can upload custom background images. If you don’t have Nitro Boost, you can still use Discord’s built-in templates or purchase Nitro Boost to unlock this feature.

  • Click on the “Upload” button and select your prepared background image from your computer.
  • Once selected, click on the “Open” button to begin the upload process.
  • Wait for the image to finish uploading. This may take a few moments depending on the file size and your internet connection speed.

Step 4: Adjusting Image Settings

After the image is uploaded, you will have some additional settings to customize how it appears in your Discord server.

Background Position

The “Background Position” setting allows you to choose how the image is positioned within the server window. You have options like “Center,” “Top,” “Bottom,” and more. Experiment with different positions until you find one that suits your server best.

Background Repeat

The “Background Repeat” option determines whether the image should repeat vertically and/or horizontally if it doesn’t cover the entire server window. You can choose from options like “No Repeat,” “Repeat X,” or “Repeat Y.”

Background Attachment

The “Background Attachment” setting determines whether the background image scrolls with the server window or remains fixed in place. Choose between options like “Scroll” or “Fixed.”

Step 5: Save Your Changes

Once you are satisfied with how your background image looks, don’t forget to save your changes! Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the green “Save Changes” button.

Congratulations! You have successfully added a background image to your Discord server. Take some time to admire your new server appearance and enjoy the enhanced visual experience it provides to your server members.

We hope this tutorial was helpful in guiding you through the process of adding a background image to your Discord server. Now you can make your server stand out with a custom background that reflects its unique style and atmosphere.
