Some Things You Need to Know

Discord has a complete set of rules and guidelines for the profile picture(or Avatar as they like to call it). 

First of all the image, you are planning to set as your Discord profile picture must be in JPG, PNG, or GIF format only. 

Although there is no limit for the image size but Discord on its own caps your profile picture at 128×128 pixels. So the image should be in square resolution. Now I suggest that you already adjust your image to square fit otherwise you will have to use the built-in image editor on Discord for doing so. That will only allow you to crop the image to square resolution.
