Prompt Design Resources for MidJourney AI

Blog: Post


I began this project a while ago (back in version 3) but set it aside while working on new ideas. I decided to dig up all the footage and finally get the idea out. I wanted this to be an experimental and experiential piece. Fast and confusing, and somewhat overwhelming… I ran the same prompt over and over (an image prompt from another image I made in MidJourney), downloaded all the video files, then upscaled the video. This better resolution allowed me to crop each of the grids into four individual videos. The audio is from an older work where I mixed various recorded sounds in Adobe Audition. Overall I am quite happy with the results, but would love to see this projected on a wall as a final form.

Pro Tips: I learned a few useful things working on this project. (1) On V3, if you use the –video parameter, you usually get a short little video, but if you pair it with –quality 5 as well, you get over 30 seconds of footage! I am hoping they add this video feature into V4, or maybe V5 when that comes out. (2) Since the video output is only the original grid, you can AI upscale the footage to get a larger resolution file, then crop in to one of the images in the grid. I used Visions Of Chaos to upscale but there are other options out there.

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...
