Fix invalid asset error on discord

If you are getting the invalid asset error on Discord, here are some of the proven fixes for it.

This error happens a lot of times especially when users try to upload sticker files to Discord.

The reason for this error could be because of the size of the file or that you may be uploading the wrong file type.

While this may seem like the easiest error to fix on Discord, it is not, as continually getting this error when you are trying to upload the “wrong” sticker file may trigger the Discord ban bot and you might get your account compromised.

In this guide, you will learn how to fix the invalid asset error when you are trying to upload a sticker(s) file to Discord.

Why Does Discord Say Invalid Asset?

The major reason why one would get the invalid asset error on Discord is that you are trying to upload an incompatible file type to the platform.

Like many other apps, they all have the accepted file type and size that can work properly on their platforms.

When it comes to uploading stickers to Discord, the right file size and format rules have to be followed.

So if you are trying to upload an incompatible sticker file to Discord, the Invalid asset error occurs.

As a rule of thumb, any sticker file you are uploading to Discord should be in an APNG (Animated PNG) or PNG format and must be 512 KB maximum file size, Discord does not support GIFs for stickers.

So anything higher than 512 KB will be rejected by Discord and hence the invalid asset error.

Another reason could be that there is an issue with your internet connection or that your mobile data has been exhausted.

How to Fix the Invalid Asset Error on Discord

There are three proven ways to fix the invalid asset on Discord, better internet connection, uploading the correct file, or reporting to tech support.

The first two works hand in hand, while you are improving your internet connection make sure you are also uploading the accepted file type and size.

The second step is to make sure that the file(s) you are trying to upload is compatible with Discord.

You can also compress your sticker file with this free tool and as a note of warning make sure that when you are uploading the sticker file that it is named and described accurately.

3. Contact tech support
