ChatGPT Learns MidJourney

ChatGPT is the newest talk of the town in AI. The old Version 3 was neat, but the latest 3.5 is just so smart that it’s creepy. GPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a text-to-text AI that attempts to respond as if you are having a conversation with another person. It can be used to chat with, write stories, poems, or even code a script for Photoshop. Yes, seriously. Like other AI models, it is trained and cannot take in more information, however, during a single chat session it can remember what you tell it.

Months ago I used the old version to assist with MidJourney prompt writing, but I thought if the new version can remember things I tell it, maybe I can teach it how MidJourney works? I then wrote out how prompting works, format, algorithms, aspect ratios, and even what parameter settings work with different versions… and you know what? It worked!

All I do is copy and paste my “lesson”, hit the voice-to-text button and speak what kind of prompt I am looking for. After it gives you a result you can even ask it to replace things, change the version, or alter the prompt text. I foresee prompting changing in many ways, but one clear need is a voice-to-image interface – and something like this might be the way… Now, it’s not perfect. It has accidentally given me –stylize 5000 on –v 4 which isn’t allowed, but this is just a small test, and I bet if GPT gets to version 4 or 5 and can be actually trained on all of MidJourney – we will have an app on allowing us to make images by just talking to our phone.

/imagine prompt: a futuristic city once bustling with life is now being overtaken by nature. Vines and plants grow through the cracks in the concrete, and trees tower above the crumbling skyscrapers. The setting sun casts a warm glow over the scene, creating a peaceful contrast to the abandoned city. --v 4 --style 4a --chaos 20 --stylize 70 --seed 420 --ar 3:2

Breaking MidJourney with 50MP

Any mad scientists here? For the past few days I have been running the same prompt over and over in an attempt to break MidJourney - and I finally succeeded… well… kinda. I created a 50 megapixel image (16,320 x 3,072px) and then MidJourney said, “Nah man, you done!”...

Mixing Different Versions

You can mix two different versions of MidJourney with the new Vary Region feature! Want to give new life to an old creation? Just find an old image in your gallery, copy the job ID, then use the /show command to bring it back in Discord - then you have the option to...

InPainting, aka Vary Region

When I am wrong I admit to it, and guess what - I was wrong. The royal we have been wanting and begging MidJourney to add inpainting for what feels like eons. As many of you know, I am a HUGE advocate and word-spreader for MidJourney BUT what I also did is constantly...

One Year Later

I just saw this pop up in my memories and it gave me a good feeling. A year ago today I released the first version of Prompter (the prompt-building spreadsheet) for free just to see if people would use it... I never thought that a year later it would get so much...
