Midjourney Knowledge Hub





Midjourney was founded in 2021 by entrepreneur and technologist David Holz in San Francisco.

Since its beta release in July 2022, it has rapidly grown to become the most popular AI image generator in the world, with over 10 million users in its Discord server.

Its success over competitors like OpenAI's now-forgotten DALLΒ·E 2, and open-source alternative Stable Diffusion can be attributed to its high image quality, variety of use cases, ease of use, and wildfire spread through social media virality.

Midjourney offers subscription plans starting at $10/mo and going to $60/mo. (Stable Diffusion on the other hand, is free and can generate images that are on-parr with Midjourney images. Many people however, are intimidated and turned away by its installation process and the extensive configuration required to get to that quality level).

If you're getting started: know that there is no Midjourney web app or mobile app yet. Any websites or apps that claim to be this are fake. The official Midjourney Website is only used as an art gallery (you must be logged in to view).

Instead, you use Discord to generate all images by sending the Midjourney bot "prompts", sentences that describe what you want to generate. At the end of your prompts you can include parameters, which are like settings that help you fine tune your results.

The official Midjourney documentation can be found here. The AiTuts prompt library can be found here.

Prompt Guides

The first thing you'll want to know is: how can I improve my Midjourney results?

The magic of Midjourney is that it gives you good results straight out of the box. You don't have to overthink your prompts: you describe what you want in plain English (or other languages, but the results won't be as good).

After a while though, you might find these results generic and "Midjourneyesque".

That's where prompt techniques come in.

The number one most important part of prompting is referencing the styles and use cases you want.

Here's a series of in-depth, niche-specific prompt guides to help you do that. They usually include many examples of good prompts. You can also check out our prompt library and the free prompt book for more ideas and inspiration.

Parameters & Commands

If prompts are Midjourney's bread and butter, parameters are the crunchy peanut butter. Parameters can have a huge impact on the quality and variety of your results.

Parameters start with '--':

Commands start with '/' and help you perform actions with Midjourney:

  • /remix β€” alter something you've already generated
  • /describe β€” like prompt weight, but for img2img
  • /blend β€” use multiple image prompts


img2img is likely Midjourney's most underrated feature. You give the software so much more to work with when you include an image as part of your prompt.

Who is David Holz and how did his unique worldview lead to him building the most popular AI image app of all time? Isn't it kind of weird that Midjourney is only a Discord app and not on web/mobile? Let's look at the idiosyncrasies of this massively successful company.

Think Midjourney's style is generic? That's only because you aren't referencing enough aesthetics in your prompts!
