Discord profile picture viewer – view someone’s Discord profile picture
Viewing someone’s profile picture on Discord is the same as you do in other social media applications. The process is pretty intuitive and straightforward; it barely takes five minutes.
Here’s a detailed step-by-step to instruct you throughout the process.
Step 1: Open the Discord application on your device and log in with your respective account credentials.
Step 2: Visit Discord’s main interface after logging in. On your desktop, click the Discord icon in the upper right corner of the page to get started.
Step 3: Find the search bar in the Discord interface, which is on the left side of the screen. It is usually represented by a magnifying glass icon. Click on the search icon, which will open the search bar.
Step 4: Now, enter the username or display name of the person whose profile picture you want to view.
Discord will automatically generate a list of users that fit your search criteria as you type.
Step 5: From the search results, locate the specific user you are interested in and click on their username to access their profile.
Step 6: After entering the user’s profile, you will see various details and options related to their account. Look towards the top left corner of the screen, where the user’s profile picture is displayed.
Discord typically shows a circular thumbnail of the profile picture. Tap on that and click the view profile option.
It’s essential to remember that a person’s privacy settings determine whether or not you can see their Discord profile image. If the user has chosen to keep their profile picture private or limited its visibility, you may be unable to view it.
When you tap on the view profile option, you’ll be able to see the detailed profile information; however, you may find it difficult to zoom in on the image. If you’d like to view the image in a big frame, we have a solution for that in the upcoming section.
How to zoom in and save a Discord profile picture?
In the above procedure, we explained how to view someone’s discord profile picture. However, in this section, we are diving one step deep and instructing you on how to save someone’s profile picture and expand it even bigger without using any third-party application.

Step 4: Now, to access the bigger version of the profile picture, you’ll need to open the Elements tab in your browser. So, press the combination of keys Ctrl + Shift + I to open the Elements tab.
This tab allows you to inspect and modify elements of a webpage.
Step 5: Once the Elements tab is open, press the keys Ctrl + Shift + C to activate the element selection mode. Now you’ll be able to select individual elements on your screen.
Step 6: Click on the Discord profile picture of the user you want to view. This will highlight the corresponding HTML element in the Elements tab.
Step 7: Now, in the Elements tab, locate the highlighted <div> element and click the toggle next to it. This will reveal more elements within the <div>.
Step 8: Next, look for the <svg> element from the revealed elements and click on its toggle. This will further expand the details within the <svg> section.
Step 9: Within the expanded elements, search for the foreignObject element and click on the toggle next to it. This will reveal another <div> element.
