  5. Describe (/describe) – Submit an image and use the /describe command to receive four example prompts based on the image.
  6. FAQ (/faq) – Get a link to popular prompt craft channel FAQs in the official Midjourney Discord server with the /faq command.
  7. Fast (/fast) – Need to speed things up? The /fast command switches you to Fast mode.
  8. Help (/help) – The /help command provides basic information and tips about the Midjourney Bot, perfect for beginners or those needing a quick refresh.
  9. Imagine (/imagine) – This command allows you to generate an image using a text prompt.
  10. Info (/info) – Stay informed about your account and any queued or running jobs with the /info command.

  18. Show (/show) – Using an image’s Job ID, the /show command regenerates the Job within Discord.
  19. Relax (/relax) – The /relax command lets you switch to Relax mode, ideal for when you want to take things slow.
  20. Remix (/remix) – Toggle the Remix mode with the /remix command to add a creative spin to your projects.

Parameters

Parameters are options added to a prompt that alter how an image generates. They can modify an image’s aspect ratios, switch between Midjourney Model Versions, change which upscaler is used, and so much more. Let’s explore the parameters you can use:

  1. Aspect Ratios (–aspect or –ar) – Control the aspect ratio of your generated image. If you wantan image that fits a specific display or layout, this parameter is incredibly useful.
  2. Chaos (–chaos) – Add a touch of unpredictability to your image generation. Higher values produce more unusual and unexpected generations.
  3. Image Weight (–iw) – Balance the influence between image and text prompts in your generation. A higher value gives more weight to the image prompt.
  4. Negative Prompting (–no) – Keep unwanted elements out of your image. For instance, --no trees would attempt to exclude trees from the image.
  5. Quality (–quality or –q) – Decide how much rendering quality time you want to spend. Higher values use more GPU time but produce higher quality images.
  6. Repeat (–repeat or –r) – Create multiple Jobs from a single prompt. This parameter is useful for quickly rerunning a job multiple times.
  7. Seed (–seed) – Influence the initial visual noise used to generate the image. Using the same seed number and prompt will produce similar ending images.
  8. Stop (–stop) – Finish a Job partway through the process. Stopping a Job at an earlier percentage can create blurrier, less detailed results.
  9. Style (–style) – Switch between versions of the Midjourney Model or the Niji Model to explore different aesthetics.
  10. Stylize (–stylize or –s) – Control how strongly Midjourney’s default aesthetic style is applied to your creations.
  11. Tile (–tile) – Generate images that can be used as repeating tiles to create seamless patterns.
  12. Niji (–niji) – Use Midjourney’s alternative model focused on anime-style images.
  13. Version (–version or –v) – Switch between different versions of the Midjourney algorithm to harness different capabilities.

Putting It All Together: Examples

Now that we’ve covered all of the commands and parameters, let’s put it all into context with some examples:

  1. Aspect Ratio – “An alien landscape at sunset –aspect 16:9”
  2. Chaos – “A serene forest path –chaos 75”
  3. Image Weight – “[image] A bustling cityscape at night –iw 1.5”
  4. Negative Prompting – “A tropical beach –no palm trees”
  5. Quality – “A medieval castle –quality 0.5”
  6. Repeat – “A futuristic city skyline –repeat 3”
  7. Seed – “A serene mountain range –seed 12345”
  8. Style – “A bustling marketplace –style expressive”
  9. Stylize – “A tranquil lakeside view –stylize 2”
  10. Tile – “A floral pattern –tile”
  11. Niji – “A vibrant cityscape –niji”
  12. Version – “A tranquil forest –version 5.1”

By mastering these commands and parameters, you’ll have all the tools you need to make the most of Midjourney. Enjoy your creative journey!
