See someone using cool art or a funny meme as their profile picture on Discord? Although there is no official way to download someone’s profile picture to your device, there are workarounds. We’ll show you what those workarounds are.
To note: Discord makes uploading profile pictures difficult, possibly due to the risk of abuse, so use the methods below wisely. Impersonating another user, for example, can cause damage and will likely get you banned from the server.
RELATED:How to change your Discord profile picture
If you’re on mobile, you can capture a screenshot of a user’s profile picture and save the photo to your phone’s gallery. It doesn’t give you a high quality version of the image, but it’s the only method you have on your phone.
Save Someone’s Discord Profile Picture to Desktop
To begin the profile picture upload process, launch Google Chrome on your computer and open Discord for the web. You can use any other web browser, like Firefox, but we’ll be using Chrome in this guide.
Log in to your Discord account on the site and navigate to the user whose photo you want to upload.
Right-click on the user and choose “Profile”. This will open their profile page.
When you see the profile, press Ctrl+Shift+C on your keyboard. This opens the Chrome Elements Inspector tool, which will allow you to find the download link for your user’s profile picture.
Once you see the Code Inspector at the bottom or right of your browser, click on the user’s profile picture on your screen.
In the Code Inspector area, next to the following tags, click the right arrow icon. This will expand those tags so you can find the image download link.
