In most cases, the profile pictures of Discord users reflect their personalities.
You will enjoy a successful appearance if your Discord profile picture is appealing.
But Discord doesn’t allow you to view the profile pictures of other users in high resolution.
What should you do in this case?
There are two ways to enlarge a Discord profile picture. You can use a moderation bot for Discord servers called Dyno or your web browser’s developer tools to extract a high-definition version of another user’s Discord profile picture.
We will share the two unique methods anyone can deploy to enlarge the Discord profile picture of another user of the platform. Use either of these methods, and you will have no issues viewing a high-resolution Discord profile picture.
What Is the Perfect Size of Discord Profile Pictures?
A Discord avatar, or Discord profile picture, is often displayed on your channel chat interface and profile page.
The recommended size of a Discord profile picture is 128 x 128 pixels. However, you can upload a much larger size image. But the image must have a 1:1 ratio.
Discord automatically shrinks large images at a 1:1 ratio. The maximum size of a Discord profile picture file is 8MB.
There are several powerful tools online that anyone can use to resize their Discord profile picture. Examples of some of these tools include Image Optimizer, Compress JPEG, Tinypng, and Optimizilla. These tools save you the hassle and time of finding the perfect picture for your Discord profile.
How You Can Enlarge Discord Profile Picture?

Method #2: Dyno (a Moderation Bot on Discord)
Dyno is a moderation bot for Discord servers. But it can be used for viewing Discord profile pictures in high quality.

- Select your server from the drop-down menu.
- Click ‘Continue‘ at the bottom.
- Review the permissions and hit the ‘Authorize‘ button.
- Complete the captcha.
Step #2: Enlarge the Picture
Follow these steps to enlarge the picture:
- Open Discord on any device.
- Navigate to your server.
- Navigate to any text channel.
- Type the
/whois @[username]command into the text field and send the message.
- Click on the user’s photo to expand it.
- Click on ‘Open in Browser‘ to view the image in a web browser.
Your default browser will launch automatically and present the high-resolution image within seconds. This is the user’s expanded Discord profile picture.
Your profile picture on Discord is a perfect reflection of your personality. You will instantly be recognized in any community you belong to on the free chat platform. It will also give your Discord profile a personal touch unlike any other.
