Midjourney’s new AI image generator: how to start drawing with it

The number of AI “artists” has been replenished with a new player which is becoming more and more popular. Midjourney Research Lab has developed a bot based on artificial intelligence that creates paintings based on a text request.

Unlike other similar programs such as DALL-E, Midjourney is open to use. The first few images are free to create. After exceeding their limit, the service will charge $10 for the basic plan, which includes 200 images.

To start using the bot, you need to go through several steps:

  1. Create an account on Discord if you don’t have it.
  2. Go to the site Midjourney and log in with Discord.
  3. Go to Midjourney server on Discord and join the #Newbies bot.
  4. Write /imagine and whatever you want it to create in thebot. Wait until the result appears.
  5. As soon as the images appear on the channel, you can use (V) and (U) to get variations or zoom in respectively.
  6. When the result is satisfactory, you can download it.
