Are you looking to add server emotes to your Discord server? Emotes are a great way to express yourself and add a touch of personality to your server. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of adding server emotes step by step.
Step 1: Creating Emote Images
First, you need to create or obtain images for your emotes. These images should be in either PNG or GIF format and have a transparent background to ensure they look good on Discord.
Tip: You can use image editing software like Photoshop or free online tools like Canva or Pixlr to create or edit your emote images.
Step 2: Accessing Server Settings
Next, open Discord and navigate to your desired server. Click on the server’s name at the top-left corner of the screen to open the dropdown menu.
From the dropdown menu, select “Server Settings. “
Step 3: Navigating to Emote Settings
In the Server Settings menu, click on “Emojis” from the left-hand side panel. This will take you to the Emote Settings page.
Step 4: Uploading Emote Images
To upload emote images, click on the “Upload Emoji” button located in the top-right corner of the Emote Settings page. This will open a file browser window where you can select your emote image files from your computer.
Note: The maximum file size for each emote image is 256KB, and they must be square-shaped with dimensions not exceeding 128×128 pixels.
Step 5: Naming Emotes
After uploading an emote image, Discord will prompt you to enter a name for the emote. This name will be used to trigger the emote in chat. Make sure to choose a unique and memorable name for each emote.
Step 6: Saving Emotes
Once you’ve named your emote, click on the “Save” button to add it to your server’s emote list. You can repeat steps 4-6 to upload and save more emotes.
Using Emotes in Chat
To use the newly added emotes in chat, simply type a colon (:) followed by the name of the emote you want to use. For example, if you uploaded an emote named “happy,” you would type “:happy” (without quotes) in chat to display the corresponding emote.
A Few Additional Tips:
- Variations: You can create different variations of your emotes by adding different prefixes or suffixes. For example, if you have a “heart” emote, you can create variations like “purple_heart” or “heart_sparkle.
- Animated Emotes: If your emote image is in GIF format, it will be animated when used in chat.
- User Limitations: The ability to add server emotes is limited to users with the necessary permissions. Make sure you have the appropriate roles or ask your server administrator for assistance.
Congratulations! You now know how to add server emotes on Discord and use them in chat. Let your creativity shine by adding unique emotes that reflect the spirit of your server!
