While other Discord users might not remember your username, there is a chance they might remember your profile picture. More so if the picture in question is unique and stands out from the rest. But how to change your Discord profile picture on mobile and desktop? Let’s find out.
When changing your Discord profile picture, ensure it is at least 128 x 128px in size. It should be under 8MB and can either be in PNG or JPG format. Additionally, try to pick an image that is copyright free and is able to represent you the best. Once the picture has been uploaded, you can then use Discord’s native tools to resize and set it. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
