Midjourney is an innovative AI program developed by a research lab led by David Holz, co-founder of Leap Motion. This unique tool can transform text descriptions into vivid images, a feature that has captivated users since its open beta launch on July 12, 2022. Users across various fields are harnessing the power of Midjourney to generate creative visuals, interacting with the AI through specific commands via a bot on the chat platform, Discord. This blend of language and imagery is opening new avenues in the realm of digital creativity.

Midjourney AI is a creative platform that allows users to generate unique worlds, characters, and images through the use of short text descriptions. It is a text2image converter AI tool which generates images based out of your prompts. To access the service, it is necessary to have a Discord account.

How to use Midjourney AI? – Step by Step

Midjourney is a great image generative AI tool because it can take any sentence you give – understand it and turn it into a piece of artwork. For now its performance is better than any other image generative tool like DALLE 2, or Stable Diffusion.

Imagine you tell it, “I want to see Hulk listening music on the roof of NewYork Building.” The program will take that sentence, think about what it means, and then create a unique picture of Hulk listening music on the roof.

This is really helpful for people who make video games or movies, because they can use this program to quickly come up with new ideas for what things in their game or movie could look like.

The key to unlocking extraordinary results lies in the quality of your input prompt. Detailed input prompt results in more accurate result.

To use the /imagine command on Midjourney Discord server, you can join and navigate to a newbie channel. Keep in mind that the newbie channels are often crowded, requiring you to constantly scroll up and down.

Alternatively, you can add the Midjourney bot to your personal Discord server, provided that it has less than 1,000 members.

If you’re new to the bot, this beginner’s guide can help you get started with using Midjourney AI on Discord.

To get started with Midjourney, you need to visit their homepage and click the “Join the Beta” button. This will take you to a screen where you can continue to Discord and register for the service. Once you have registered, you can access the web-based Discord or download the desktop app.

Midjourney has stopped offering free images. The pricing of Midjourney is $8 for 200 images and $24 per month for unlimited access.

3. Use the /imagine Command

About Discord Commands

To use the Midjourney Bot on Discord, you need to input a command. Commands allow you to create images, modify default settings, monitor user information, and perform other useful actions. To generate an image, use the /imagine command followed by a short text description, known as a Prompt, to specify what kind of image you want. The bot will then generate a unique image based on your input.

Using /imagine

  1. Type /imagine prompt: in the conversation or select the /imagine command from the slash commands pop-up.
  2. Type a description of the image you want to create in the prompt field.
  3. Click return to send your message.

MidJourney Parameters Guide for Best Image Output
MidJourney Parameters Guide for Best Image Output
The article covers different MidJourney Parameters and prompts to help you create the image of your choice. Explore how to work around with different styles and parameters.
 

WHAT IS ALLOWED?

  • Any image up to PG-13 rating involving fiction, fantasy, mythology.
  • Real images that may be seen as respectful or light-hearted parodies, satire, caricatures
  • Imaginary or exaggerated real-life scenarios, including absurd or humorous situations.

WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED?

  • Disrespectful, harmful, misleading public figures/events portrayals or potential to mislead.
  • Hate speech, explicit or real-world violence.
  • Nudity or unconsented overtly sexualized public figures.
  • Imagery that might be considered culturally insensitive

4. Processes and Wait for AI to Generate the Image

Wait for Midjourney AI to generate the images based on your description. The Midjourney Bot takes about a minute to generate four options.

2023_03_MJ_ImageGrid_Generation.gif

Using the Midjourney Bot initiates a free trial, allowing users to perform roughly 25 Jobs.

A Job is any action that utilizes the Bot, including the /imagine command to generate a grid of images, upscale images, or create image variations. To monitor your remaining free trial time, use the /info command to view the Fast Time Remaining.

5. Review the Generated Images – Upscale or Create New Variations

After the initial image grid has finished generating, two rows of buttons appear:

2023_03_MJ_Interface_UX.jpg

U1 U2 U3 U4

The U button upscale the size of the selected image, producing a larger version with added details.

V1 V2 V3 V4

The “V” button generates slight modifications of the selected image in the grid. This produces a new grid of images that are similar in style and composition to the original selected image.

????

The ???? (re-roll) reruns a Job. In this case it would rerun the original prompt producing a new grid of images.

Send the final image to yourself by using the envelope icon in the chat and save or download the image for future use.

NOTE: The more specific and detailed your description, the better the results will be generated by the Midjourney AI.

With this guide, you can start creating art and images using Midjourney AI in Discord.

Prompt Example:

/imagine prompt: highly detailed photos shot with kodak color, ultra realistic face, a beautiful Indian woman in front of Taj Mahal, 2030s, photo shoot, highly detailed shots, contrast, f/8, wes anderson style, photo of the year –v 5.2

Pan and Zoom Out Upscaled Images

One of the major upgrade in Midjourney 5.2 is that now you can Zoom Out the generated image and Midjourney will automatically generate the zoomed out image based on your prompt and the value of zoom out. Check the example below where I tried to zoom out the image by 2x. You can even pan right, left, up, down to create entire scene. You can get as creative as you can with your prompts.

The upscaled images in the latest Midjourney version (using the U buttons) gives access to extra controls:

  • Vary (Strong) and Vary (Subtle) options, available from Midjourney 5.2, create four variations of the chosen image.
  • Zoom Out 2x and Zoom Out 1.5x options enlarge your image and automatically generate more content based on the original prompt.
  • Custom Zoom allows you to enlarge your image and add an extra prompt simultaneously, such as displaying it as a framed artwork on a wall.
  • The four Pan arrows extend your image in the chosen direction, based on the existing content and original prompt. Once you’ve panned in one direction, you can only continue in the same direction.
  • Make Square transforms a panned image into a square crop.

Experimenting with these options can transform your images into larger scenes.

How to use Midjourney AI with your own custom image?

  • Step 1: Just like before, you can create a new Server or use the existing one
2023_08_Custom-Image-Midjourney-1.jpg
  • Step 2: Add INSwapper and Midjourney Bot on your Server
2023_02_mid-4.jpg
  • Step 3: Verify the installation with these icon of the bot on the right
2023_08_mid-5.jpg
  • Step 4: On the prompt box, type /saveid and upload a sample image with a specific id.
