Can i use gif for discord banner?

If you're already one of them, you can upload files in GIF format. But keep in mind that you can crop images after uploading them, but you can't crop GIFs. If I make my profile banner a gif, it appears animated in the preview, but as soon as I save the changes, it becomes static. Just search for your preferred GIF on a website like GIPHY and copy and paste its associated link into a text channel or save it to your desktop.

GIFs are especially widespread on the Discord communication platform, as they are frequently used by players, interest groups and fan clubs to quickly communicate their thoughts and feelings with each other. Sometimes, the Discord server considers the gif as an image when it is loaded from the camera roll, so uploading it as a file solves the problem. Turning on the option “automatically play gifs when possible” fixed the issue for desktop and Android users. In that case, instead of uploading gifs from the gallery or internal storage, use a gif app like GIFY to upload or share gifs.

If, for some reason, the gifs don't play if you upload them from the camera roll, try uploading the gifs as a file. Please note that this is a different size than the standard 1920 x 1080 server banner that mods can use to set up a new Discord server. GIF Picker offers a huge collection of regularly updated GIFs from various sources sorted into several categories depending on theme or emotion. Finally, you can create your own GIF with a GIF maker and then share it to Discord in the same way as above.

Open GIPHY and search for the GIF you want to edit, or tap the plus button at the bottom to access the GIFs from the camera roll. These GIFs take longer to load on the platform, but they will still be embedded in the channel for all your friends to see. If you're trying to upload a gif as an avatar, make sure you have at least one Discord Classic subscription. In some cases, your profile doesn't sync correctly with the Discord server, so gifs don't work or upload and cause problems.

But for many users, a poor internet connection causes the gif to not load properly, and the Discord server gets a damaged gif file that it can't play.
