A recent Discord glitch causes users’ profile pictures to appear blurry and pixelated. So if your pfp for Discord appears blurry, we have the fix here for you.
The issue becomes evident when you upload your profile picture on Discord from an iOS device, including iPhones and iPads.
Blurry profile picture fix – Upload from browser
To overcome this blurry pfp issue, all you have to do is upload your profile picture from a browser such as Chrome or Safari.
Right now, the only way to fix this is to upload your PFP from the PC browser. Devs have noted this issue, and they are aware of it.
We are in the process of rolling out a fix so that you will receive it shortly. The only way to fix & get Discord PFP without any blur or pixelation is to use a browser like Chrome or Safari.
Essentially, the issue is related to incorrect downscaling and compression of profile pictures on Discord on the iOS apps. So, if you upload a pfp from iOS that is larger than the official recommendation (128 x 128 pixels), you will encounter a glitch.
You won’t overcome the issue by compressing the profile photo yourself or by resaving the image. Moreover, this is unrelated to the Discord server you use.
So the solution for Discord users is to upload 128 x 128-pixel images for their profile avatar. If you are hellbent on using a larger image, just upload it from a PC or Mac browser.
How to log in to Discord from your browser
You can use a web browser like Safari or Chrome on your PC. However, if you're using a smartphone, you should use https://discordapp.com.
If the above URL does not work, you need to follow discord.com/login to log in to your Discord account.
Also, a prompt would show you how to download Discord from the Play Store or App Store on the Discord website.
How to upload your Profile Picture on Discord
After you log in, the website will take you to a user interface which is the Discord homepage.
You would notice that the interface is not responsive, so you would need to zoom out a little so that you can see everything on the page.
For Discord gamers using an iPhone, they would need to tap the “AA” icon on the top navigation bar. When they tap on the small “A” icon, they zoom out of the page at a 50% scale.
But if they tap “AA,” they would zoom out on a scale of 100%. Zooming out would allow the Discord user to be able to see their screen fully. The next practical step would be for the discord user to tap the gear icon close to their discord profile picture.
After clicking on the gear icon, Discord will take you to an interface that features their account settings. On the left sidebar, you will find more settings options
These options include; the “user profile,” “my account,” “privacy and safety,” and many more.
All you need to do is tap on the user profile interface to see an option to change the avatar on the site.
When the user clicks on the change avatar option, a navigation menu will open up to go to the “Photo Library,” “Take Photo,” and upload.
