Larry Thompson

Are you tired of the same static image for your Discord server? Why not give it a little more life and personality by changing the server image to a GIF?

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to change your Discord server image to a GIF. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Find or Create a GIF

If you already have a GIF that you want to use, great! If not, you can easily find one on websites like GIPHY or create your own using tools like Adobe Photoshop or online GIF makers. Make sure the GIF reflects the theme or vibe of your Discord server.

Step 2: Convert GIF to Image Format

In order to set a GIF as your Discord server image, it needs to be in an image format such as JPEG, PNG, or BMP. Don’t worry; converting a GIF to an image format is straightforward.

  • Option 1: If you have access to Adobe Photoshop, open the GIF in Photoshop and go to File > Export > Save for Web (Legacy). Choose an image format from the dropdown menu (e.g., JPEG) and click Save.
  • Option 2: If you prefer using online tools, there are various websites available where you can upload your GIF and convert it into an image format. Simply search for “GIF to Image converter” in your preferred search engine and choose one that suits your needs.

Step 3: Access Server Settings

To change the server image on Discord, you need administrative permissions or be the owner of the server. Open Discord and navigate to your desired server. On the left sidebar, right-click on the server name and select “Server Settings” from the context menu.

Step 4: Change Server Image

Once you are in the server settings, click on the “Overview” tab located on the left side of the screen. In this tab, you will find various options related to your server, including the server image.

  1. Option 1: If you have already converted your GIF to an image format, click on the server image. A file explorer window will appear; select your converted image and click “Open.”

    Your server image will now be updated with the new image.

  2. Option 2: If you want to use a custom animated emoji as your server image, click on the smiley face icon below the server name. This will open up a list of animated emojis available for your server. Choose one that you want to use as your server image, and it will be updated instantly.

Step 5: Save Changes

After changing your Discord server image to a GIF or an animated emoji, make sure to click on the “Save Changes” button located at the bottom right corner of the screen. This ensures that your new server image is applied and visible to all members.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed your Discord server image to a GIF or an animated emoji. Take some time to admire your new lively and engaging server appearance!


Please note that changing the server image requires administrative permissions or ownership of the server. Also, keep in mind that using inappropriate or offensive images may violate Discord’s terms of service and community guidelines.

Now go ahead and make your Discord server stand out from the rest with a captivating GIF as its image!
