How Can You Fix Your Blurry Profile Picture on Discord?

The Discord mobile app is glitchy sometimes and may blur your profile picture.

To solve this, you need to upload your profile picture on a browser on the Discord website.

Search for Discord on your browser, open the website, log in, go to your settings and upload your profile picture.

It won’t be blurry this time.

However, remember that opening Discord on a browser on your mobile device will be a hassle.

Discord isn’t optimized for mobile use, so the website will not be optimized for mobile screens.

Follow the steps below to see how you can do it:

  • Open Discord on your browser
Open Discord on your browser
Open Discord on your browser

Search for Discord on your browser and open the first link.

You can use any browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera.

It doesn’t matter. Discord will work on all browsers.

Alternatively, you can look for the “discord.app” on Google and go there.

Some users apparently can’t log in to the Discord website and use the app there.

  • Tap on login
Tap on login
Tap on login

Once you open the Discord website, you’ll need to log in.

Tap on the “Login” button to do this.

Below, you’ll see two buttons – Download and “Open Discord in your browser.”

Please don’t touch any of those buttons because they won’t work.

  • Enter your credentials and login
Enter your credentials and login
Enter your credentials and login

After you tap “login,” Discord will ask you to enter your credentials.

Enter your email/phone number in the first field and your password in the second field.

Then, tap “login” to finish the procedure and log into your Discord account.

Remember that Discord isn’t optimized for mobile use, so that the page will be incomplete.

  • Tap on the gear icon
Tap on the gear icon
Tap on the gear icon

Once you get to your Discord account, you’ll land on the chats page.

To fix your blurry profile picture, go to settings by tapping on the gear icon.

It’s at the bottom, next to the “headphone” icon.

At this point, you’ll notice that the website doesn’t show the entire Discord interface.

You may need to zoom out to see certain settings, but it shouldn’t be necessary in this case.

The “Gear” icon is fully visible at the bottom.

  • Go to “User Profile”
Go to “User Profile”
Go to “User Profile”

Once you open the settings, you’ll be redirected to another page showing the Discord settings.

On the left, you’ll see a panel of options with multiple menus and submenus.

The first menu is “User Settings,” with 5 submenus, including “My Account,” “User Profile,” “Privacy & Safety,” “Authorized Apps,” and “Connections.”

To change your profile picture, tap on “User Profile.”

Then, tap on “Change Avatar” on the main page. You should see the button even though the interface is incomplete.

  • Tap on “Upload Image”
Tap on “Upload Image”
Tap on “Upload Image”

After you tap “Change Avatar,” a pop-up will appear with two options.

You can either “Upload Image” or choose an animated GIF image as your profile picture.

Choose “Upload Image” to upload an image from your phone.

Find the photo, select it, and upload it to your Discord profile.

You’ll need to edit it to a fitting size and resize it if necessary during the editing procedure.

After you’re done with the changes, tap on “Apply,” and that’s it.

Now your Discord picture will not show blurry anymore because you’ve uploaded it in a browser.

The steps are the same on a desktop computer.

Conclusion

Many users get a blurry profile picture if they upload it on the mobile app.

It’s a known glitch that Discord hasn’t fixed yet.

To avoid this, you must upload the profile picture on a browser, either on your computer or mobile.

If you have a computer, the steps will be super easy.

But it’ll be a bit harder if you don’t have access to one and can only use a mobile.

That’s because the Discord browser platform isn’t optimized for mobile use.

The interface will be incomplete, and you may need to zoom out to see all the options.

To change your profile picture, go to User Settings – User Profile – Change Avatar – Upload Image.

Edit your picture, resize it if necessary, and then apply the changes.

Your picture won’t be blurry anymore because you uploaded it through the Discord browser!
