Midjourney is an innovative text-to-image artificial intelligence (AI) service developed by a San Francisco-based independent research lab, Midjourney, Inc. The technology allows users to generate images based on textual prompts, producing a wide range of artworks that span from realistic to abstract styles. Launched into open beta in July 2022, the tool was designed by a team led by David Holz, co-founder of Leap Motion, and includes industry veterans such as Jim Keller, Nat Friedman, and Philip Rosedale.

Functioning through Discord, a popular chat platform, Midjourney is recognized for its user-friendly interface. To use the service, users simply input an "/imagine" command followed by a description of the desired image, and the AI generates a set of four images in response. Users can then select their preferred image to upscale. The AI is known for generating high-quality, well-structured, and detailed images, with resolutions up to 1,792 x 1,024 pixels. Despite concerns about copyright infringement from artists whose work was used in the training set, Midjourney's service is seen as a beneficial tool for rapid prototyping of artistic concepts and is rapidly being adopted by industries such as advertising.

Midjourney, like Stable Diffusion and DALL-E, is a generative model designed to create images from textual prompts. However, each of these models has unique characteristics that differentiate them from one another.


What is Midjourney?

Midjourney is a highly specialized Image generation AI Model of type Closed source created by the AI community. Derived from the powerful Stable Diffusion () model, Midjourney has undergone an extensive fine-tuning process, leveraging the power of a dataset consisting of images generated by other AI models or user-contributed data. This fine-tuning process ensures that Midjourney is capable of generating images that are highly relevant to the specific use-cases it was designed for, such as image generation, AI art.

Can I download Midjourney?

Most AI models are downloadable on PromptHero. However, the author of this model has chosen to not make it available for download at this time.

How to use Midjourney?

To use Midjourney, download the model checkpoint file and set up an UI for running Stable Diffusion models (for example, AUTOMATIC1111). Then, provide the model with a detailed text prompt to generate an image. Experiment with different prompts and settings to achieve the desired results. If this sounds a bit complicated, check out our initial guide to Stable Diffusion – it might be of help. And if you really want to dive deep into AI image generation and understand how set up AUTOMATIC1111 to use Closed sources like Midjourney, check out our crash course in AI image generation.
