Can Animated Banners Make Your Discord Profile Stand Out?

If you're a Nitro Classic user, you'll have more flexibility when it comes to customizing your Discord banner. You can upload a fully customized banner, and with Normal Nitro, you can even create an animated banner. Discord banners are available for both servers and individual users, and they can be used as an extension of your profile or your server. It's a great feature that can help you stand out from the crowd.

Logos and text can interfere with your Discord banner, making it difficult for people to see your server title. To use the server banner image on Discord, you must be a Nitro user. If you're using the free version of Discord, you'll need to upgrade to Nitro to unlock different rewards and upgrade your server. When cropping and resizing your Discord banner image, there are several factors to consider in order to get the optimal dimensions.

If you want a more personalized Discord banner for your profile or server, you can always create your own. With 10 nitro bucks, you can have an animated profile banner and change their profile pictures on specific servers, while Nitro Classic has nothing at all. For example, this Discord banner shows Miles Morales jumping from the top of a building and passing through the city lights. However, the quality becomes extremely low on mobile devices and much of the banner fades into the background of Discord.

According to Discord's own advice on the “safe zone” of your banner image, it's best to keep the essential sections out of the top 28% because that's where your server name and options button will be displayed. The server I'm on has had a level 3 boost for months but still doesn't have this feature, and Discord doesn't tell me that I can add an animated gif unlike the dead server. Despite the fact that this banner is literally a black canvas with the word “Single, a sad face, a heart and an arrow”, it still conveys a lot of emotions and feelings. This 600 × 240 banner can be a single color or include an eye-catching animation with an animated server icon.

It is a photo taken directly from sculptures found in ancient Greece and is a very aesthetic Discord banner. The maximum size for Discord banners is 960 pixels wide by 540 pixels high, while server invitation welcome images can be 1920 pixels wide to 1080 pixels high. Additionally, keep in mind that your banner will fade halfway before blending into the dark gray of Discord on the bottom border. Adobe Creative Suite is full of different powerful programs that can help you create unique and incredible Discord banners using its various tools. For instance, this pink-themed banner is great for any genre or even on a server.
