Adding a cover photo to your Discord server can give it a personalized touch and make it stand out. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to add a cover photo to your Discord server.
Step 1: Server Settings
To begin, open Discord and navigate to the server where you want to add a cover photo. Click on the server name at the top left corner of the screen to open the drop-down menu. From there, select “Server Settings”.
Step 2: Overview
On the left side of the Server Settings window, you will see different options. Click on “Overview” under the “Overview” category.
Step 3: Server Name and Icon
In the Overview settings, you will find options to change your server’s name and icon. Below that, you will see an option named “Server Banner”. This is where you can add a cover photo for your Discord server.
Step 4: Uploading a Cover Photo
To upload a cover photo, click on the “Upload” button next to “Server Banner”. This will open a file explorer window where you can select an image from your computer.
Note: The recommended banner size is 960px x 540px. If your image doesn’t meet this size requirement, Discord will automatically resize it for you.
Tips for Choosing a Cover Photo:
- Size: As mentioned earlier, aim for an image size of 960px x 540px for optimal results.
- Relevance: Choose an image that represents your server’s theme or purpose.
- Clear and Crisp: Make sure the image is clear and not pixelated.
Step 5: Adjusting Cover Photo Position
Once you have uploaded your cover photo, you can adjust its position. Click on the image thumbnail to open the position settings. Use the slider or enter specific values to adjust the vertical positioning of the image.
Step 6: Save Changes
After you have chosen a cover photo and adjusted its position, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom right corner of the Server Settings window. Your cover photo will now be visible to all members of your Discord server.
Congratulations! You have successfully added a cover photo to your Discord server. You can now enjoy a more visually engaging server experience.
Note: Only server administrators have permission to change the cover photo of a Discord server.
