How to Update Your Discord Profile Picture

Your profile picture, also known as your avatar, is what others see next to your username on Discord. A good profile picture and username combination are great ways to bring some personality to your profile. It’s also a great way to establish an identity in the various Discord communities you’re a part of.

However, Discord has time limits for changing an avatar image, in which users can not make more than two tries within 10 minutes. This is to prevent people from trying to disrupt Discord’s terms of service. 

With that said, if you’re looking for a way to update your Discord avatar, you’re reading the right post. This article explains how to update the Discord profile picture.

How to Change Avatar Image on Discord

  • Open the app on PC/Desktop
  • Select the settings cog at the bottom left next to the current image.
  • Choose the three-dotted menu to the right of where the image goes.
  • Click on Change Avatar.
