Midjourney's /remix Mode Guide





No Comments

You use /remix mode when your generation came out good, but there are things you want to change about it. You can't exactly reroll, because that would create entirely new images.

Use Remix Mode to change prompts, parameters, model versions, or aspect ratios between variations. Remix will take the general composition of your starting image and use it as part of the new Job. Remixing can help change the setting or lighting of an image, evolve a subject, or achieve tricky compositions.

Remix is an experimental feature that may change or be removed at any time.

Using Remix

Activate Remix mode with the /prefer remix command or by using the /settings command and toggling the πŸŽ›οΈ Remix Mode button. Remix changes the behavior of the variation buttons (V1, V2, V3, V4) under image grids. When Remix is enabled, it allows you to edit your prompt during each variation. To Remix an upscale select πŸͺ„ Make Variations.

When Remix is enabled, Variation buttons turn green when used instead of blue.
You can switch Model Versions when using Remix.
When you are done with Remix use the /settings or /prefer remix command to turn it off.
Create a standard image variation when Remix is active by not modifying the prompt in the pop-up window.

Using Parameters with Remix

You can add or remove Parameters while using Remix mode, but you must use valid parameter combinations. Changing /imagine prompt illustrated stack of pumpkins --version 3 --stylize 10000 to illustrated stack of pumpkins --version 4 --stylize 10000 will return an error because Midjourney Model Version 4 is incompatible with the Stylize parameter.

Only parameters that normally influence variations will work while using Remix:

Affects Initial
Affects Variations
and Remix
Aspect Ratio*βœ“βœ“
Image Weightβœ“
Same Seedβœ“
  • Changing aspect ratios with Remix will stretch an image. It will not extend the canvas, add missing details, or fix a bad crop.
