I'm pretty sure you will agree with the following statement: Midjourney is amazing, but their documentation is a mess. We decided to spend hours translating the Midjourney commands documentation into human language so you can easily understand it. So, picture this: Midjourney commands. They're like your magic wand to chat with the Midjourney AI bot on Discord. You'll be whipping up images, tweaking settings, stalking profiles (not in a creepy way), and pulling off other nifty tricks. These commands work in any bot-friendly spot on private Discord servers or even through cozy DM chats with the bot itself. Whether you're a seasoned Midjourney explorer or just stepping into the game, this guide will have you covered from start to finish.

Basic Midjourney Magic

Alright, time to break it down. These are your bread-and-butter commands for smooth sailing with the Midjourney bot:

  • /imagine (for example, /imagine mountains and rivers): The big kahuna to make images out of text magic.
  • /help: If you need a little guidance, this one's got your back.
  • /info: Peep your profile deets.
  • /subscribe: Become a Midjourney fan.
  • /fast: Speedy mode for quick pics, but expect a dash less consistency and savings.
  • /relax: Chill mode for slower pics at no cost.
  • /show <jobid>: Bring back a pic using its secret job ID.
  • /private: Keep your image projects hush-hush.
  • /public: Share the love, make all your projects public again.
  • /prefer: Get all fancy with custom Midjourney options.

You'll be dropping /imagine like it's hot, but don't sleep on the other basic commands. They're your ticket to the Midjourney Artist club.

Level Up: Advanced Image Crafting

Okay, now for the pro tips. When you're dropping /imagine, you can throw in some extra ingredients at the end. These are like flavor enhancers for your image recipe. Here are the juiciest ones:

  • -stylize <number>: Add some style to your creation.

  • -s 20000: Let the artsy vibes take over.

  • -q 1: Regular ol' quality.
  • -q 2: Slower, more detail.
