Adding Backgrounds to a Discord Server

Discord is a popular platform for gaming communities, where users can chat, voice call, and share media with each other. One of the ways you can customize your Discord server is by adding backgrounds. This article will guide you through the steps to add backgrounds to your Discord server.

Step 1: Create or find an image
The first step in adding a background to your Discord server is to find or create an image that you want to use as the background. You can either design your own image or search for one online that suits your server theme. Make sure the image is in a suitable format like JPEG or PNG.

Step 2: Access Server Settings
To add a background to your Discord server, you need to have administrative privileges. Once you have the necessary permissions, open Discord and navigate to your server. Click on the name of your server located at the top-left corner of the screen.

Step 3: Open Server Settings
In the drop-down menu that appears after clicking on the server name, select “Server Settings.” This will open up a new window with various options related to managing your server.

Customize Your Server Appearance

In this window, you will find different tabs on the left-hand side. Look for and click on “Overview.” You will see several settings related to customizing your server appearance.

Choose Background Image

Scroll down until you find the “Server Overview” section. Here, you will see an option called “Server Banner.”

This is where you can add a background image for your Discord server. Click on the “Change” button next to it.

Upload Your Image

A file dialog box will appear, allowing you to browse and select the image file from your computer. Locate the image you want to use as the background and click “Open.” The selected image will now be uploaded as the new background for your Discord server.

Step 4: Adjust Background Position
After uploading the image, you can adjust its position for optimal visibility. Below the “Server Banner” option, you will find a slider labeled “Background Position.” Slide it left or right to adjust the position of your background image on the server overview.

Step 5: Save Changes
Once you are satisfied with the background image and its position, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the window. Your changes will be applied immediately, and the new background will be visible to all members of your Discord server.

  • Tip: Experiment with different images and positions to find a background that best represents your server’s theme.
  • Note: The maximum file size for a server banner is 8MB.


Adding backgrounds to your Discord server is an excellent way to personalize and enhance its appearance. By following these steps, you can easily upload an image and adjust its position. Remember to choose an image that reflects your server’s theme and consider experimenting with different options until you achieve the desired look.

Now that you know how to add backgrounds to a Discord server, go ahead and make your server stand out from the rest!
