How I use Prompter, and fun with Randomness

What Is Prompter?

After weeks of studying imagery, researching prompt design, and compiling an organized database of descriptive terminology, I have put together the Prompter spreadsheet and multi-chapter Visual Notebook to assist others in prompt creation. My goal was to make a tool that is both visually straightforward for new users, but also complex and comprehensive enough for the advanced crowd.

The Prompter interface has it all, and you can learn with the Prompter Tutorial. Optional custom weights on every item, image URL input, simple checkboxes for parameters such as Stylize and Quality, seed control, algorithm version selection, and drop-down menus with a database of hundreds of descriptors. Select a popular aspect ratio, from your standard mobile phone screen to a super-wide canvas. Choose camera lenses, lighting, color, or even a huge list of art movements and famous artists.

Prompter is also fully customizable. Select CUSTOM and write in your own artist, or add your own terms to the MyData sheet (your very own private database). You can even click the SAVE button to save all of your prompts with date and time, add notes, or click CLEAR to reset the entire form and start over (buttons run an external script, so you just need to allow that one time and they will work perfectly).

What Is New?

Prompter has evolved a lot in the past few months, and you can see it all in the Prompter Changelog. I always try to keep up to date with the newest additions and changes by MidJourney. Some of the most exciting additions include:

1. The gigantic database of descriptors is now included in the sheet for ease. Also, cloud data automatically syncs to notify you if there is a new version of Prompter available - just click and update!

2. I re-coded every field to change when you select a new algorithm, since some features are not compatible. Now you don’t have to worry about what parameters and aspect ratios are available for what version.

3. The newest Clusters feature is really fun! Basically, you can create groups of descriptors to add to a prompt with one click. I designed a bunch of my own options in the database, so if you select “Expired Film” these terms are added to your prompt: “disposable camera photograph, hyper-realistic, Flickr, 4k, light rays, ambrotype color, bokeh” - More terms and features are always being added, so stay tuned!

4. I am working on some new fun ideas for batch prompting as well, and hope to release this new tool in a future release. With this you can type a single prompt and get dozens of versions with various different options. Then you just copy/paste into MidJourney.

Feel free to check out the somewhat disorganized Prompter Changelog any time.

What Is The Visual Notebook?

The Visual Notebook is an extensive and evolving resource for all your prompting needs. This is just a personal project of mine, and is not an official guide (you can also browse the official MidJourney Documentation gitbook or the amazing channels on Discord like #prompt-faq or #prompt-chat).

That said, my Visual Notebook covers everything from the basics of Discord to the MidJourney user interface, parameters, aspect ratios, and much more. The main portion consists of hundreds of descriptors and visual examples taken right from the Prompter database, and will soon be available to browse on this website. Check out a few visual examples below, and don’t forget to bookmark the site so you can keep coming back for more!
