Midjourney img2img Guide (using images in your prompts)

One of the coolest things you can do with Midjourney is generate images from existing images.

Sending links

Any image you send to the Midjourney bot must be in link form.

If you have the image saved on your computer or phone, first send it to the Midjourney bot:

Then right click the image (long press on mobile) and click “Copy Link” option. (If the image is somewhere online, you can copy its URL directly.)

Paste the image link after “/imagine” and then type your prompt:

You can generate using image+prompt combinations as well as using images alone.

img2img Prompt Techniques

Combining Multiple Images

You can use the image-to-image technique with as many images as you’d like.

I recommend a maximum of 3 images, things get weird after that.

Your photo as…

Unfortunately, Midjourney isn’t as good as making cool variations of your own photos (and keeping your face consistent) as Stable Diffusion is.

Image Weights (Midjourney V3 only)

You can control the strength of the image with the command “--iw“. Learn more about text weights here.

0.25 is the default weight. As you increase it to 1, you increase the effect of the input image on the final result.
