How to Download Someone’s Profile Picture on Discord?

Have you ever met someone on Discord and thought, “Wow, that’s a really cool looking profile picture!” But after you right-clicked it, you quickly realized there’s no ‘Save as’ or ‘Download’ option. And now you’re wondering, “how can I download this cool looking profile picture, and use it as my own”.

Well, worry not, in this article, we’ll teach you how you can quickly and easily download someone’s Discord profile picture.

Download Discord Profile Picture

There are two main ways (that we know of) to download someone’s Discord profile picture.

The first method is easy, but it requires you to have a Discord bot that supports this method.

Anyone can do the second method. Although, it’s a tad complex. If you follow this guide, you shouldn’t have any trouble with either of these methods.

Method 1 – Using Discord Bot Commands

To download someone’s profile picture, (or even your own,) you can use a bot to fetch the image link. Most popular Discord bots have an “avatar” command.

If you have any of these popular Discord bots, you should be able to download someone’s profile picture with ease:

  • Dyno Bot
  • ProBot
  • Ayana Bot
  • Dank Memer Bot
  • Kashima Bot
  • KawaiiBot
  • Shiro Bot
  • Tatsumaki Bot
  • Yggdrasil Bot
  • YAGPDB
  • Mudae Bot

These are the bots I tested. Even if your Discord Bot of choice is not on this list, don’t worry. Chances are the steps below will work for you.

  1. In the message box, type “[command prefix]avatar [@user]”

  1. Now, look at the URL of the image. If the URL has “.png/.jpg” with “size=1024”,then you’re good to go. You can simply right-click on the image and click on “Save image as…”.

  1. If the URL doesn’t have the proper file type, you can manually change it. For example if it’s a .webp, you can replace “.webp” with “.png”.
  1. If the URL doesn’t have the proper image size, you can manually change it. At the end of the URL, you’ll see “?size=[number]”. Replace the number with “1024”. The end of the link should look like: “.png?size=1024”.
  1. In case the URL doesn’t have a size at the end. You can manually add it. Simply add “?size=1024”.

In case you don’t have a bot that supports this method, you might want to either get one of the bots on this list.

Method 2 – Using Discord Inspect Element

Discord, like Google, has an Inspect Element feature. If you’re familiar with this, downloading images should be a breeze. But if you aren’t, worry not dear reader, we’ll guide you through it one step at a time.

  1. Navigate to the user profile, whose profile picture you want to download.

  4. After this, navigate to the profile picture and click it.
  5. This will highlight the image element in the Inspect Element Window. This might seem like complete gibberish to you but stick with me.

  1. Click the little arrow to the left of the element that you highlighted.
  2. This will open the ‘div’ container.
  3. Keep opening the container under the highlighted container. In this order: <div>, <svg>, <foreignObject>, and then <img>.
  4. In the <img> container you’ll find the URL to the profile picture.
