How to Easily Put GIFs on Your Discord Banner

GIFs are a great way to express yourself and communicate with your friends on Discord. With the help of GIF Chooser, embedding links, and integrations with GIF creators like Droplr, you can easily share GIFs to Discord. You can also create your own GIF with a GIF maker and then share it to Discord in the same way. However, if you're trying to upload a gif as an avatar, make sure you have at least one Discord Classic subscription.

These GIFs take longer to load on the platform, but they will still be embedded in the channel for all your friends to see. It's important to 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. With the right tools, you should always be able to find (or create) the perfect Discord GIF for any situation. If, for some reason, the gifs don't play if you upload them from the camera roll, try uploading the gifs as a file. Turning on the option “automatically play gifs when possible” fixed the issue for desktop and Android users.GIF Picker is an excellent resource for finding GIFs from various sources sorted into several categories depending on theme or emotion.

If you're having trouble uploading gifs from the gallery or internal storage, try using a gif app like GIFY to upload or share gifs. In some cases, your profile doesn't sync correctly with the Discord server, so gifs don't work or upload and cause problems. You can also 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 popular 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. To edit a GIF, open GIPHY and search for it or tap the plus button at the bottom to access the GIFs from the camera roll.

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. 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.
