How To Download A Discord Profile Picture

Discord users can use any compatible image as their profile picture, and many take pride in their interesting images. It’s common to find someone with a profile picture you like, but you can’t save it right away. Both PCs and mobile devices experience this issue.

Fortunately, there are still ways to download another person’s profile image on Discord. You can do this both on a PC and on a mobile device. Find out more by reading on.

There are two main ways to download other users’ profile pictures on PC. One method is to use the Inspect Element feature in Google Chrome or another browser. For the second method, you’ll need a Discord bot that can use the “avatar” command.

Using the Inspect Element method is the most convenient method since it does not require a bot. However, it’s slightly more complex due to the fact that you’ll have to navigate through a lot of code. We can simplify everything by condensing it into simple steps.

Using Inspect Element

You’ll be working with code you may not understand, so buckle up. The steps for this method are as follows:

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. Visit
  3. View a user’s profile by right-clicking.
  4. The Inspect Element window can be opened with Ctrl + Shift + I.
  5. To bring up the Element Selector, press Ctrl + Shift + C or click the icon at the top left of the Inspect Element window.
  6. The user’s profile picture can be viewed by clicking on it.
  7. You’ll now see some highlighted code.
  8. Click the arrow behind the div.
  9. The arrows should be clicked in this order: svg, foreignObject, div, and finally img.
  10. The profile picture URL will appear.
  11. Copy and paste the URL into another tab or click on it.
  12. You will see your profile picture once you wait.
  13. Select Save image as… from the right-click menu.
  14. You now have the profile picture of another user.

The Inspect Element window can be used to save images in several ways. The image size can be increased by bumping up the numerical value at the end of the URL. As a result, the image will be larger, but it is likely to become blurry as a result.

When saving an image that isn’t in PNG or JPG format, you can edit the file extension. As a result, the file will be more accessible.

Using a Discord Bot

The “avatar” command is available in several popular Discord bots. The code displays user profile pictures in a message so you can download them. You’ll want to use the following bots:

  • A dynamometer
  • Moodae
  • Iro
  • BotPro
  • Ayana
  • Vielen Dank, Memer

Alternatively, you can check your bot’s command list to see if similar commands are available.

To download a profile picture using bots, try these steps:

  1. The command should be typed according to the syntax of your bot.
  2. Ping the profile picture owner at the end of the command.
  3. Press Enter on your computer to execute the command.
  4. Click on the embedded image when the new message appears.
  5. Open the original by clicking on it.
  6. Click on the image URL to view it.
  7. If necessary, adjust the profile picture’s size and right-click it.
  8. Choose Save image as…

Using this method inconveniences other users since you have to ping them. The most you can do is apologize if they’re unhappy. However, you can always ask users for permission, and they may consent.

How to Download a Discord Profile Picture on an Android

You won’t be able to use Inspect Element on Android like you can on a PC. There will, however, be no problem with the other method.

Using a Discord Bot

We mentioned earlier that Discord bots will also accept “avatar” or related commands on Android devices. In addition, you can save images faster since all you need to do is tap a few times.

The instructions are as follows:

  1. Visit Discord for mobile.
  2. Make sure you’re on the right channel.
  3. You can ping a user by typing the “avatar” command and the username you want to ping.
  4. The embedded image will appear when you tap it.
  5. Download it to your mobile device.

That’s all there is to Android. You don’t have to worry about file formats, and it’s simple to use.

How to Download a Discord Profile Picture on an iPhone or iPad

Even though iOS and Android versions of Discord are separate apps, they work the same. In almost every way, the above steps are exactly the same for iPhones and iPads. If there are any differences, we’ll note them.

Using a Discord Bot

Ensure you ping the correct user, or you may risk an angry response. Regardless of how demure a Discord user is, you can still use the method.

  1. For iOS, visit Discord.
  2. Please go to the appropriate bot or spamming channel.
  3. The “avatar” command should be typed in the correct format.
  4. Find the correct user by typing @.
  5. Send the message with the “avatar” command.
  6. Click on the embedded image in the text message.
  7. Download it to your mobile device.

Let Me Get That from You

For the uninitiated, getting profile pictures from other Discord users can be challenging, but you can do it for free. As long as you don’t infringe on anyone’s copyright, all of these methods are legal. Discord doesn’t directly support any of these methods, but they’re not outright forbidden either.

Do you have any experience with any of these methods? Would you feel uncomfortable if someone looked at your profile picture right in front of you? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
