Angela Bailey

Adding a picture to your Discord server can be a great way to customize and personalize your community. Whether you want to showcase your server’s logo, an event poster, or simply a fun image, it’s easy to do with just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Prepare the Image

Before you can add a picture to your Discord server, you need to make sure that the image is in the right format and size. Discord supports various image formats such as JPEG, PNG, and GIF. It’s best to use high-resolution images for better clarity.

Note: Keep in mind that there are file size limits for images on Discord, so it’s recommended to optimize your image before uploading. Large files may take longer to load and could potentially disrupt the user experience on your server.

Step 2: Accessing Server Settings

To add a picture to your Discord server, you need administrative permissions or be the server owner. Once you have the necessary access rights, follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord and navigate to the server where you want to add the picture.
  2. Click on the server name located at the top-left corner of the screen. This will open up the dropdown menu.
  3. Select “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu. This will open up the server settings window.

Step 3: Adding a Picture

In the “Server Settings” window, look for “Overview” in the left sidebar. Click on it.

  1. In the “Overview” tab, scroll down until you see “Server Icon.” Click on it.
  2. A new window will pop up.

    Click on the button that says “Upload Image. “

  3. Select the image file from your computer and click “Open. “
  4. Discord will upload and apply the image as the server icon.

Note: Ensure that your image meets Discord’s guidelines and terms of service. Inappropriate or offensive images may result in consequences or account suspension.

Step 4: Previewing the Picture

To preview how the picture looks on your server, simply navigate back to your server’s main screen. You should now see the new picture displayed next to your server name.

Step 5: Changing or Removing the Picture

If you want to change or remove the picture at any time, follow these steps:

  1. Go back to “Server Settings” by clicking on the server name and selecting “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  2. Navigate to “Overview” in the left sidebar.
  3. In the “Overview” tab, locate “Server Icon.

To change the picture, repeat steps 6-8 from earlier. To remove it entirely, click on “Remove.” Confirm your decision in the pop-up window that appears, and Discord will revert to its default server icon.

Note: Remember that only users with administrative permissions or server ownership can modify a Discord server’s picture.


You’ve successfully added a picture to your Discord server. Feel free to experiment with different images to find one that best represents your community. Don’t forget to follow Discord’s guidelines and terms of service when choosing pictures for a safe and enjoyable environment for all users.
