Heather Bennett

Changing your profile picture (PFP) for a Discord server is an easy and fun way to personalize your online presence. Whether you want to showcase your favorite character, a cool artwork, or simply a photo of yourself, Discord allows you to easily change your PFP for any server you’re a part of. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to change your PFP, so let’s dive in!

Step 1: Open Discord and Go to User Settings

To get started, open the Discord application on your computer or mobile device. Once it’s open, click on the gear icon located in the bottom-left corner of the screen. This will open the user settings menu.

Step 2: Navigate to My Account

In the user settings menu, click on the “My Account” tab located on the left-hand side of the screen. This will take you to a page where you can manage various aspects of your Discord account.

Step 3: Click on Change Avatar

Scroll down until you find the “Avatar” section. Here, you’ll see your current profile picture displayed along with a button that says “Change Avatar.” Click on this button to proceed.

Step 4: Choose Your New Profile Picture

A file explorer window will pop up, allowing you to browse and select an image from your computer or mobile device. Take a moment to choose an image that represents you or something you enjoy.


  • The recommended image size for Discord avatars is 128×128 pixels.
  • You can upload JPG, PNG, or GIF files as your profile picture.

Step 5: Adjust and Confirm

After selecting your desired image, Discord will display a preview of how it will appear as your new PFP. You can zoom in or out and reposition the image to make sure it looks just right.


Discord also provides an option to automatically generate a smaller version of your avatar for use as an emoji.

Once you’re satisfied with the preview, click on the “Save” button to confirm your new profile picture. Discord will then update your PFP across all servers you’re a part of.

That’s It!

Congratulations! You’ve successfully changed your profile picture for a Discord server. Your new PFP will now be visible to other users in the server and will help personalize your presence within the community.

Remember: Changing your profile picture is not limited to just one server. You can repeat these steps for any other servers you’re in, allowing you to have a unique PFP for each community you’re a part of.

Tip: Changing your profile picture regularly can be a fun way to express yourself and keep things fresh!

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of changing your PFP for a Discord server. Now go ahead, get creative, and make your Discord presence truly yours!
