Midjourney is a text-to-image AI that generates visually appealing images based on text prompts. It is used on the chat app Discord by interacting with a bot. Users can type in a sentence, and the AI will generate initial thumbnails in about one minute or so. These thumbnails can then be upscaled to full quality by using additional credits.
Users can also request variations of any previously generated image, which generates four options.
Midjourney's model has recently been updated to version 4, making it more powerful and adaptable. It can create photorealistic images that are almost indistinguishable from actual photographs and more fantastical or surreal images.
Users can choose to generate images in various styles, including painterly, realistic, and stylized. Midjourney is available for a monthly fee starting at $10, which allows for private messaging with the bot and the ability to generate a certain number of images and variations.
