Starting with Midjourney

What is Midjourney?

Midjourney is your go-to platform if you're looking to dive headfirst into the vibrant world of AI Art. Think of it as a modern art studio, but instead of paintbrushes and canvases, you have cutting-edge AI technology to craft unique and mesmerizing artworks. It's not just for seasoned artists; it's also perfect for tech enthusiasts who are keen to explore the artistic potential of AI. 

The downside is that Midjourney UX is not what you are used to. 

You will have to use Discord to generate AI art, and it's 

Also, it lacks some guidance. You can easily get lost and overwhelmed.  

It takes some time to understand how it works, but once done, you will be ready to fuel your creativity and create your very own AI Art masterpieces. 

So, are you ready to embark on this exciting journey?

Sign up to Discord

First things first, you need to sign up for Discord and create your own account in you don't have any yet. 

Here is how to sign to Discord to use Midjourney. 

Once done, you need to validate your Discord account by claiming it. You will receive a validation email, and you'll be done.

Sign up to Midjourney

Now, it's time to create your Midjourney account. Here is the step-by-step process. 

This is your golden ticket to the world of AI Art - it's like stepping into a sci-fi movie, except it's real and it’s now.

But now, you should land on a screen similar to this one.

Already feeling overwhelmed? 

Well, I did the first time I used Midjourney. 

But no worries, we'll keep guiding you. 

As you have seen, I didn't pay anything yet. That's part of the Midjourney magic. You have a free trial that allows you to create your first images.

Now, the fun part begins. We'll start playing with this fantastic tool in seconds. We'll keep it simple first, then we'll experiment so we start having the real fun. 

Write your first prompt

You must be asking yourself: "What should I do now?". Well, we're going to write your first prompt together. 

To do so, you will have to go to a Discord channel dedicated to newbies in the Midjourney server. 

In the left sidebar, you will find a place called "Newcomer rooms". Join any of the ones listed, and follow the steps shown in the video.

As you can see, you have to use what is called a "command" to prompt Midjourney. 

The command used to create a prompt is "/imagine".

So type first /imagine, then type what you have in mind. 

Here, I typed, "/imagine a cool robot in a post-apocalyptic world"


Oh god! I can't use Midjourney for free. 

As you can see in the video, I have to accept ToS first. Fortunately, it's really easy to do. 

But another issue is coming in… 

"Due to extreme demand we can't provide a free trial right now. Please /subscribe to create images with Midjourney."

So let's type /subscribe and see what happens. 

Ok I have to pay… 

Well, you have two choices here. Wait a bit and try again later or pay now. 

It's up to you. 

Once done, let's get back to our first prompt…

And let's have a look at what Midjourney comes up with…

Wow. Amazing results already.

I love #3 & #4. 

I will upscale them. 

I love my cute little robots. They look amazing.

Midjourney is already promising.

Let's deep dive into some edit features now.

Edit your first Midjourney prompt

From there, you can edit your first prompt in several ways. 

Reroll the results

Not happy with the results you got? You can just reroll your prompt, and it will create new ones. 

First, I recommend you activate the remix mode so you can change your prompt and make some adjustments. 

Vary strong & Vary Subtle
