How to Create AI Art With Midjourney

Are you curious about how to use the Midjourney bot to generate AI art? Read on for a beginner’s tutorial.

What Is Midjourney and How Does It Work?

Midjourney is an independent AI art generator that turns text-based prompts into images. All you need to do is enter a few words, and the tool will provide you with an original image using AI and machine learning.

Midjourney differs from other AI art generators because it’s open for public use. Anyone with a Discord account can join the Midjourney beta server and get started for free. Once you’re satisfied with what the bot returns, you can upscale the image and download it or send it to yourself. You can also browse a gallery of other users’ images on the Midjourney website.

Read the Rules

Once in the server, you’re only a prompt away from your AI-generated image. However, there are a few things to note before getting started.

First, the tool offers up to 25 queries for free. Once you’ve used up your chances, you can choose from various subscription plans if you want to continue using the generator.

Additionally, the server naturally has a few rules every user must follow. You’ll find the community guidelines, as well as the terms of service, in the “rules” channel in the sidebar. Take a few moments to read it, as violating the guidelines will result in a ban.

Enter a Bot Channel and Create Your First Piece of Art

Once you’re ready to get started, you can join a bot channel for new users. Follow these steps.

  1. While in the Midjourney server, select a “Newbies” channel from the sidebar.

The bot will take a minute to generate four images based on your prompt. At first, you might only see blobs of colors as your request is being processed, but the images will slowly get clearer.

Tweak Your Image

Once the four images are ready, you can upscale the image of your choice or generate further variations of one of the options using the buttons underneath.

Use the upscale buttons to give further detail to one of the images.

  1. Find the first row of buttons under the image grid.
