Conclusion

Uploading emojis to Discord can be troublesome if they have a background.

Luckily, there’s an easy way to remove the backgrounds of Discord emojis.

Upload it to remove.bg, and the website will do the rest. Download the emoji without a background, and then upload it to Discord!

It’s nothing hard, and you can do this in a couple of minutes.

Can you remove the backgrounds of all emojis on Discord?

No, you can’t. You can’t remove the background of a black and white emoji using remove.bg.

Only colored emojis can be modified this way.

If you try removing the background of a black and white emoji, the emoji will become transparent.

You won’t be able to use this emoji because it’ll be invisible.

That’s why you should always remove the backgrounds of colored emojis before uploading them to Discord.

What size is Discord emojis?

By default, all Discord emojis are 32 x 32 pixels.

These are quite small, but you can upload bigger pixels. The maximum emoji size you can upload is 128 x 128 pixels.

However, Discord will resize these emojis to fit the 32 x 32 pixels.

So, no matter how big the emojis you upload is, Discord will resize them to fit the standard requirement.

Before you upload the emoji, make sure it’s of a high quality so that, when it’s resized, it retains most of its quality.

Many users say that emojis’ 32 x 32-pixel size is too small, but Discord hasn’t changed this feature yet.
