Scott Campbell

Are you looking to spice up your Discord server with some fun and expressive emojis? Look no further! In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of getting emojis for your Discord server, so you can add a personal touch to your conversations.

Step 1: Finding Emojis

If you’re wondering where to find emojis for your Discord server, there are several options available.

  • Option 1: You can use existing emojis that are available on Discord. To access these emojis, simply click on the smiley face icon in the chatbox and browse through the various categories. There is a wide range of emojis available for you to choose from.
  • Option 2: Another way to find emojis is by using external websites or apps that offer a vast collection of emojis. Some popular emoji websites include Emojipedia, EmojiCopy, and GetEmoji.

    These websites allow you to search for specific emojis or browse through different categories.

  • Option 3: If you want to create custom emojis for your server, you can use image editing software like Photoshop or online tools like Canva. Create an image with dimensions of 128×128 pixels, save it as a PNG file, and then upload it to Discord. Keep in mind that custom emojis are only available for servers with Nitro boosting enabled.

Step 2: Uploading Emojis

Now that you have found or created the perfect emoji for your server, it’s time to upload it.

  1. If using Discord’s built-in emojis:
    • In the chatbox, click on the smiley face icon.
    • Click on the emoji you want to use from the available options.
    • Alternatively, you can type the emoji’s name in between colons, like :smile:, and Discord will suggest matching emojis for you to choose from.
  2. If using a custom emoji:
    • Click on the server settings dropdown menu.
    • Select “Emoji” from the menu.
    • Click on “Upload Emoji”.
    • Select the file containing your custom emoji and give it a name. Make sure to use a descriptive name so that it’s easy to find later.

Step 3: Using Emojis in Discord

Now that you have uploaded emojis to your server, it’s time to have some fun with them!

  • In chat messages: Simply type ‘:’ followed by the emoji’s name, and Discord will suggest matching emojis for you to choose from. Alternatively, you can directly select an emoji from the smiley face icon in the chatbox.
  • In channel names: You can also use emojis in channel names by editing the channel settings. Simply copy and paste the desired emoji into the channel name field.
  • In server nickname: If you have permission to change your nickname, you can add emojis to your nickname by editing your profile settings. Click on your username in the bottom left corner, select “Change Nickname”, and add emojis as desired.
  • Tips for Effective Emoji Usage:

    • Don’t overdo it: While emojis can enhance your server’s personality, using them excessively can be distracting and overwhelming. Use emojis sparingly to maintain a clean and readable chat environment.
    • Be mindful of context: Emojis can sometimes be misinterpreted, so ensure that the emoji you choose aligns with the intended tone or message of your conversation.
    • Consider custom emojis: Custom emojis can add a unique touch to your server. If you have Nitro boosting enabled, take advantage of this feature to create emojis that reflect your community’s personality.

Congratulations! You now know how to get emojis for your Discord server.

Whether you use existing emojis or create custom ones, emojis add an element of fun and expressiveness to your conversations. So go ahead and start using those emojis to bring life to your Discord community!
