Larry Thompson

Are you looking to add some pizzazz to your Discord server? One way to do that is by setting an animated server icon!

Animated icons are a fun and eye-catching way to make your server stand out from the crowd. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to save an animated server icon in Discord and give your server that extra spark.

Step 1: Find an Animated Icon

The first step is to find an animated icon that you’d like to use for your server. You can create your own animated icon using software like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP, or you can search for pre-made icons online. There are plenty of websites that offer free animated icons, so take some time to browse and find the perfect fit for your server.

Step 2: Save the Animated Icon

Once you’ve found the perfect animated icon, it’s time to save it onto your computer. To do this, simply right-click on the icon and select “Save Image As..” from the context menu. Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the file, and click “Save”.


Make sure that the file format of the animated icon is supported by Discord. As of now, Discord supports GIF, JPEG, and PNG formats for server icons.

Step 3: Open Discord Settings

Now that you have saved the animated icon, it’s time to open Discord and navigate to your server settings. To access these settings, click on the down arrow next to your server name in the top-left corner of the Discord window. This will open a drop-down menu with various options.

Select “Server Settings” from the drop-down menu. This will open a new window with all of your server settings.

Step 4: Change Server Icon

In the server settings window, click on the “Overview” tab located on the left-hand side. This tab provides an overview of your server and its settings.

Scroll down until you find the “Server Icon” section. In this section, you’ll see your current server icon displayed.

To change the server icon, click on the “Edit” button next to your current icon. This will open a file explorer window.

Step 5: Upload Animated Icon

In the file explorer window, navigate to the location where you saved your animated icon in Step 2. Select the icon file and click “Open”.

You should now see a preview of your animated icon in the server settings window. If you’re happy with how it looks, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the window to apply it as your server icon.


Discord may take a few moments to process and apply your new animated server icon. Be patient, and soon enough, your server will be rocking that animated flair!


Adding an animated server icon is a great way to make your Discord server more visually appealing. By following these steps, you can easily save and upload an animated icon to give your server that extra touch of personality. So go ahead, find that perfect animated icon, and let your creativity shine!
