Describe, Or Don’t
2023-04-03

The developers just added a really fun (and useful) command: Describe! Where MidJourney is mainly a text-to-image AI, the new /describe command now let’s us turn image-to-text, in a prompt-like format. This can be fun for just playing around, but it can also be useful to find new terms for images you like but can’t seem to describe… but keep in mind, it’s not always to be trusted.

As a photographer, I have been quite outspoken against many camera terms (like aperture or ISO settings) because they never seem to do anything logical, so there is no use in typing them – however – I am getting a lot of camera types and settings back from the new /describe feature. So this is a good reminder to take what it says as inspiration, not as some master prompter.

Okay, so I just uploaded an image of R2D2 on the beach and used the /describe command, and this was the first prompt that came out. I really think it was onto something with the repetition of “pop-culture-infused” (sarcasm) so I decided to ad a ton more to make my prompt even more amazing. 🤣
