How to Use Midjourney to Create AI Art

Midjourney makes it easy to participate in the rise of AI-generated art. Artificial intelligence art is becoming more advanced, and part of that includes becoming more accessible. Midjourney is one such example. This tool generates images based on your text prompts using the powerful capabilities of AI and machine learning. This is similar to other AI art generators, such as OpenAI’s DALL-E. Once you know how to use Midjourney, you can effortlessly create truly unique works of art.

Compared to many other AI programs (such as ChatGPT), gaining access to Midjourney is much easier. There is no need to install a program or set up complex libraries, and if you already have a Discord account, there is no need to even register. This is because Midjourney is accessed entirely through Discord. Discord is a free online text and voice chat service that allows hundreds or thousands of users to gather and chat together.

You’ll first want to go to one of the rooms under the “Beginners” section title. These will be named Beginner followed by a number. There isn’t really any difference between these rooms, so feel free to use whichever room you like. Once you’re in the right room, you can get started. To have Midjourney generate an image, you’ll need to run a Discord command. All you have to do is type /imagine followed by a text description of what you’d like Midjourney to generate. There are plenty of AI art prompt ideas worth trying, for example, typing “/imagine the night sky full of fireworks” will cause Midjourney to start generating these ideas. The Midjourney bot takes a bit of time to give you results and will generate four different images based on your prompt.

The first and easiest thing you can do is use the buttons below the generated images to guide the AI in the direction you want. The buttons labeled U are used to zoom in on the corresponding image, with U1 zooming in on the first image, U2 on the second, and so on. Clicking any of these options will increase the resolution of the image, which is useful when you want Midjourney to generate higher quality artwork.

As you can see, getting started with Midjourney isn’t as difficult as it may seem at first. In the end, it’s straightforward and an interesting way to get a sense of how AI has developed over the years. So give it a try and see what you can create.
