Ultimate Midjourney Guide: Beginner to Advanced

Welcome to the ultimate guide to mastering Midjourney, the AI art generation tool. This guide will take you from setting up Midjourney for the first time to generating stunning images like a pro. We’ll cover everything from creating different characters using your face, generating hyper-realistic photography, creating logos, understanding parameters in-depth, and mastering prompting techniques. Let’s dive in!

Getting Started with Midjourney

The only way to access Midjourney right now is through Discord. If you don’t have a Discord account, create one. It’s free and easy. Then, go to midjourney.com, click sign in, and authorize the Discord bot. The free trial is currently disabled and may or may not be available as you’re watching this video. They have a few different pricing options; the $10 per month is good for most people.

Once you’re in, you’ll see the newcomer rooms where you can type your prompts in the Newbie chats. But everything will be public and it’s hard to keep track of, so I recommend starting a new Discord server and inviting the bot for a more private and organized workspace.

Interacting with the Bot

There are two commands you’ll use to interact with the bot. The first is /settings, where you can turn remix mode on. This will help when modifying versions of the images you get. The second command is /imagine, where you enter your prompt. Just type anything you want to see, and Midjourney will start generating images based on your prompt.

Understanding Parameters

Parameters are a powerful tool in Midjourney. They all start with a -- and allow you to customize your prompts. Here are some of the most common parameters:

  • --AR: This parameter is for aspect ratio. The default is a square (1:1), but you can change it to anything you want.
  • --S: This parameter is for stylization. It mimics how strongly Midjourney’s default aesthetic style is applied.
  • --Q: This parameter is for quality. It affects how much detail is added to the image.
  • --chaos: This parameter changes how varied the results will be. Higher values produce more unusual and unexpected variations.
  • --seed: This parameter is used to reference a previous image you generated to get similar results.
  • --no: This parameter is for negative prompting. For example, --no plants will try to generate an image without plants.
  • --IW: This parameter is for image weight. It allows you to control how closely Midjourney tries to mimic the image you uploaded.

Prompting with Your Own Images

One of the most exciting features of Midjourney is the ability to prompt with your own images. This allows you to replicate a face or environment. To do this, you need to get a link to the image, paste that URL at the beginning of your next prompt, and Midjourney will influence the job’s composition, style, and colors based on your image.

Creating a Logo with Midjourney

Midjourney is also great for creating logos. Just type in “create a logo for [type of company]” and see what it comes up with. You can also guide it with types of logos if you have something specific in mind. If your logo needs some touch-ups, you can use vectorizer.ai for free to turn it into a vector file that you can edit in a vector editor like Illustrator.
