How to Use Midjourney V6: A Comprehensive Guide


Midjourney Version 6 brings revolutionary advancements to AI-driven image generation, offering improved realism and accuracy over its predecessors. This guide will help you navigate the new features, compare it with other tools like DALL-E 3 from OpenAI, and provide tips and tricks to maximize your creative output.

Getting Started with Midjourney V6

Setting Up Midjourney Version 6

  1. Accessing Version 6:
    • Go to the dropdown menu under settings and select "v6."
    • Alternatively, type "v6" after your prompt to test the new version without changing default settings.

Understanding the Release Stage

  • Recognize that Midjourney Version 6 is currently in Alpha, meaning it's the first release and will undergo more iterations before the final release.
  • Be aware that significant changes are expected as it progresses to a full release.

New Features and Enhancements

  • Expect more accurate prompt following, longer prompts, improved coherence and model knowledge, better image prompting, and remix capabilities.
  • Minor text drawing ability is now included—text must be put in quotations.
  • Style options like "raw" and "stylized" are refined, and the upscaler has been improved for better image quality.

Prompting in Midjourney V6

Simplified Prompting

  • Avoid using "junk words" that previously seemed to enhance image quality, such as "photorealistic" or "4K."
  • Be explicit about what you want, as V6 has better natural language understanding.

Using Styles and Options

  • Use "-style raw" for more photorealistic images.
  • Adjust "stylized" values for better prompt understanding or aesthetics (default is 100, adjustable up to 1000).

Tips and Tricks

Supported Features

  • Keywords like "archaos," "weird tile," "stylized star," "raw," "remix," and "blend" are supported.

Prompting with Text

  • To include text in an image, enclose the desired text within quotation marks.
  • Describe the text with words like "printed on," "entitled," "inscribed," etc.

Positioning Elements

  • Use natural language to control composition, specifying where elements should be placed (e.g., "on the left," "in the background").

Importance of Specific Words

  • Only include important words in prompts that determine the output.

Descriptive Language

  • Use visually descriptive adverbs and adjectives to convey the desired style and mood.

Referencing Styles and Movements

  • Reference artists, art movements, design movements, and photography styles to guide the AI.

Avoiding Vague Words

  • Steer clear of words like "insane," "extreme," and "somewhat" that don't contribute to image quality.

Natural Language and Grammar

  • Talk to Midjourney V6 as you would to Chat GPT, using clear and simple language.
  • Pay attention to grammar and punctuation to avoid misunderstandings in image generation.
