How Do I Add a GIF to My Emotes to a Discord Server?


Scott Campbell

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to add a GIF to your emotes on a Discord server. Emotes are a fun way to express yourself and add personality to your server. Adding a GIF to your emotes can make them even more dynamic and eye-catching.

Step 1: Find or Create a GIF

The first step is to find or create a GIF that you want to use as an emote. There are various websites where you can find free GIFs, such as Giphy or Tenor. Alternatively, you can create your own GIF using software like Adobe Photoshop or online tools like GIPHY Capture.

Step 2: Upload the GIF

Once you have your desired GIF, you need to upload it to Discord. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord and go to the server where you want to add the emote.
  2. Click on the server name at the top left corner of the screen.
  3. Select “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  4. In the left sidebar, click on “Emojis”.
  5. Click on the blue “Upload Emoji” button.
  6. Choose the GIF file from your computer and click “Open”.

Note: Discord has specific size and file format requirements for emotes. The maximum file size is 256KB, and it should be in PNG, JPEG, or GIF format.

Step 3: Set Emote Name

After uploading the GIF, you need to set a name for your emote. This name will be used as a shortcut in chat for displaying the emote. To set the name, follow these steps:

  1. In the “Emoji Name” field, enter a suitable name for your emote.
  2. Click on the blue “Save” button to save the emote.

Step 4: Using the Emote

Now that you have added the GIF as an emote, you can use it in chat. To use the emote, simply type “:” followed by the emote name you set in step 3.

For example, if you set the name as “dance”, you would type “:dance” in chat. The emote will be displayed once you send the message.

Congratulations! You have successfully added a GIF to your emotes on a Discord server. Now you can express yourself with animated emotes and make your server more engaging for everyone.

Remember to keep your emotes appropriate and adhere to Discord’s guidelines for usage.
