Midjourney: AI Image Generation Tool

Midjourney is an AI image generation tool developed by the Artificial Intelligence Research Lab, Midjourney, Inc. This tool can generate images based on input text prompts. The program entered public testing on July 12, 2022, and users can operate it through Discord’s bot commands, creating a variety of images in different styles.

Similar to OpenAI’s DALL·E and Stability AI’s Stable Diffusion, this AI drawing tool only requires users to input text, and it can create corresponding images through artificial intelligence in approximately one minute. The difference is that Midjourney currently relies on the Discord community for AI image generation.

Key Features of Midjourney:

  1. Text-to-Image Generation: Using the /imagine command in Discord, users can input text prompts to generate corresponding images.
  2. Creative Image Blending: Using the /blend command, multiple images can be merged to create a blended style, inspiring unique creativity.
  3. Image Expansion and Translation: Midjourney supports expanding image content in four directions (up, down, left, right) and zooming out to scale the main subject.
  4. High-Resolution Image Enlargement: Midjourney defaults to generating 1024×1024 pixel images and supports enlarging images up to 4 times.

Midjourney’s Pricing: Midjourney currently offers four subscription levels, with a 20% discount for annual payments. Each subscription plan includes access to the Midjourney member gallery, official Discord, and general commercial use.

  • Basic Plan: $10 per month ($96 per year)
  • Standard Plan: $30 per month ($288 per year)
  • Pro Plan: $60 per month ($576 per year)
  • Mega Plan: $120 per month ($1152 per year)
