You can freely upload up to 50 custom emojis that can be used by anyone on that very server. When your Nitro Boost level is higher than it normally is, your server would be able to upload more than 50 emojis at once. You can as well get a global passport so you can use your custom emojis anywhere. Another bit is that emoji names must only be two characters, numbers, or underscores long. For best results, the custom emotes size is 256 KB and below, and the best image resolution is 128 x 128 pixels as they will get resized after uploading to 32 x 32 pixels.

Before you upload an emoji, ensure that your emojis are fully prepared for uploading. You have a selection of images that Discord will carefully crop to a square dimension type. Never try uploading an emoji downloaded from another Discord server. You will get an error message if you do so.

The animated emoji feature is only available to only members with Discord Nitro.

  1. Select an emoji you want to upload to your server from your desktop by clicking Open.
  2. You would have an opportunity to change your emoji’s name in the special field once uploaded to your server.
  3. To come back to your channel, click on the Cross Esc icon.
  4. To see if your new emojis have appeared under your selected server name, click on the Emoji button in the lower right corner.
