Happy Amoebas

MidJourney’s Facebook is doing weekly themes for fun, and I love fun, so let’s do it. This week’s theme is “creatures” so I wanted to think of something out of the ordinary. I own a pretty powerful microscope, not for the sake of science, but purely aesthetics. I hook up my camera to explore these tiny worlds and make photographs. Anyway, I was wondering, what if you looked in and saw a bunch of happy amoebas?!

I first made a bunch of happy amoebas with the prompt below, but swapping out –style 4b for 4a, or swapping between low and high stylize and chaos. I like running the same prompt idea in a bunch of ways to see what options I can work with. I then had the idea to make a bunch of fantasy microscopes to pair with the amoebas. I did the same with this prompt below, running it, and swapping numbers. Then I downloaded, upscaled, and altered some colors of the images, even using the new Photoshop Neural Filter to colorize some that were less colorful. And there you have it, a bunch of happy amoebas!

/imagine prompt: microscope imagery of a happy amoeba smiling and laughing in a petri dish surrounded by other cells --ar 3:2 --style 4b --chaos 0 --stylize 1000 --v 4

/imagine prompt: product photograph of a high powered microscope, close up, lens, slide, bright light --stylize 800 --chaos 90 --v 4 --style 4b

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...
