If you want to add some fun and personality to your Discord server, one great way to do so is by incorporating animated emojis. Animated emojis can bring your server to life, adding a touch of excitement and expressiveness to your conversations. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps of adding animated emojis to your Discord server.
Step 1: Create or Find Animated Emojis
The first step is to find or create the animated emojis you want to add. There are several websites where you can find free or paid animated emojis, or you can create your own using image editing software. Make sure the emojis are in GIF format as Discord only supports animated GIFs for emojis.
Creating Your Own Animated Emojis
If you want to create your own animated emojis, you can use software such as Adobe Photoshop or GIMP. These programs allow you to create and edit images frame by frame, which is essential for creating an animated emoji. Once you have created your emoji animation, export it as a GIF file.

Once you have your animated emojis ready, it’s time to upload them to Discord. To do this:

- Select “Server Settings”.
- In the left sidebar, click on “Emoji”.
- Click on “Upload Emoji”.
- Select the GIF files
