There are times when the built-in emojis are simply insufficient, and you can’t even locate the ideal GIF to express your emotions. Due to the capability for custom emojis in Discord, you don’t need to worry about any of this. To make interactions more enjoyable, Discord lets you upload and use your own unique emoticons on servers. This post will teach you how to make and add personalised emoticons to your Discord server if you’re wanting to brighten up your server.
Custom emojis are frequently used on Discord servers, but if you have a Discord Nitro subscription, you may also use them in direct messages. Now that we have that out of the way, here is all you need to know about Discord’s support for custom emojis.
To better express oneself, use custom emojis in Discord. These emojis come in both static and animated varieties. To your Discord server, you may freely post up to 50 static and 50 animated emojis. To utilise animated emojis on Discord, you and the other users of the server must have Discord Nitro. Additionally, sending emojis between servers is available with a Nitro subscription.
As was already indicated, your server comes with 50 free emoji slots by default. You gain 50 more emoji slots if a Discord server unlocks Level 1 perks (2 Nitro enhancements). This means that you will now have a total of 100 emoji slots available. Additionally, Level 2 servers (15 Nitro boosts) receive 150 slots, while Level 3 servers (30 Nitro boosts) receive an incredible 250 slots.
Before you proceed to design unique emoticons for your Discord server, there are a few things you should bear in mind. Keep in mind that emoji images must be 128 by 128 pixels and cannot be larger than 256 KB. So with that said, let’s get started.
Choose the photo you wish to use for your custom emoji and crop it to a 1:1 aspect ratio. Any photo editing software should work in place of the FastStone Image Viewer that I am using in this instance.
