Published on Feb 28th, 2024

Integrating Discord with Zapier opens up a world of automation possibilities, streamlining how you share images and engage with your community. If you’re looking to automate the process of posting images to your Discord channels, Zapier can be an incredibly useful tool. Here’s a step-by-step guide to setting up Zapier to post images on Discord.

Step 1: Create a Zapier Account

First, ensure you have a Zapier account. Sign up or log in to your existing account at

Step 2: Start a New Zap

Once you’re logged in, click on the ‘Make a Zap’ button. A ‘Zap’ is an automated workflow that connects your apps and services.

Step 3: Choose Your Trigger App

Zapier works by triggering an action based on an event in another application. Choose the app and corresponding event that will trigger the posting of an image to Discord. For instance, you might select “Google Drive” as the trigger, with the event being “New File in Folder.”

Step 4: Set Up Trigger

After selecting the trigger app and event, follow the on-screen instructions to set up the trigger. This may involve logging in to the service and granting Zapier permission to access your account.

Step 5: Choose Discord as Your Action App

Search for Discord in Zapier’s action apps, and select it to add it as the destination for your images.

Step 6: Select Discord Action Event

Choose the 'Send Channel Message' event, which allows Zapier to post a message (including images) to a specific Discord channel.

Step 7: Connect Your Discord Account

You’ll need to connect your Discord account to Zapier by providing the necessary permissions. This allows Zapier to access your Discord servers and channels.

Step 8: Customize Your Discord Message

In the ‘Set up action’ step, choose the discord server and channel where you want to post your images. You can also customize the message text and specify the image that you would like to post. If your image is the output of a previous step, you may dynamically insert the image URL here.

Step 9: Test Your Zap

Before turning your Zap on, it’s essential to test it to ensure that everything is set up correctly. Zapier will walk you through sending a test message to your Discord channel.

Step 10: Activate Your Zap

Once you’re sure everything is working correctly, turn on your Zap. Now your images will be automatically posted to Discord whenever your trigger event occurs.

By following these steps, you can automate the process of sharing images and enhance your engagement on Discord with minimal effort. Remember to monitor your Zaps periodically to ensure they’re functioning correctly, and adjust any settings as needed to keep everything running smoothly.

For additional customization and help with complex workflows, seeking assistance from development and technology consultants can be helpful. They can provide insights and support to optimize your use of automation tools like Zapier, improving your overall Discord experience.
