Currently, Midjourny is running the alpha phase of their latest V6 version on discord server. There was a long gap for the release of V6 compared to its previous releases. It’s been a week since the release and we are seeing all kinds of responses from the users. Let us dive deeper and see the major changes in the system and what’s next for us as a user of this tool?  

Key Features of Midjourney V6

1. Enhanced Prompt Following and Image Quality: Midjourney V6 exhibits much more accurate prompt following, improved coherence, and enhanced model knowledge.

2. Text Drawing: One of the most awaited features. They have introduced a minor text drawing ability, enabling users to include legible text in their creations.

3. New Prompting Structure and Parameters: The dev team has clearly stated that “You will need to ‘relearn’ how to prompt.” to use V6.

The update brings a new way of prompting, supporting elements like "chaos" and "zoom" for more control. It requires a shift in how users create prompts, focusing on being explicit and clear about desired outcomes. 

This version is more sensitive to prompts, so avoid using keywords such as “award winning, photorealistic, 4k, 8k” and others.

4. Improved Upscalers: The update includes improved upscalers with both subtle and creative modes, enhancing image resolution by 2X.

5. Organizational Tools: Anticipated improvements in image management include features like folders, ratings, and tagging, along with potential integration with external storage services. All these can be witnessed when the website is made accessible to everyone.

Creating Text

  • To create texts, you can try the following prompt and then tweak it to your needs.

The latest update comes with more hyper realistic image outputs, that are clear and the upscale option is an icing on top!

Example Prompt: close up shot of [Hibiscus petals] portrayed in the style of desktop wallpaper, gradient dark mix, pitch black background --ar 16:9.

Upscaled Image

The latest version of Midjourney supports two upscale modes that are Subtle and Creative upscales. Let’s have a look at how it looks. 

Example Prompt: A close up shot of a Cat, Looking at the camera surprised --s 250, --v 6.0. 

Comparison between V5.2 Vs V6

Example Prompt: A flower pot made of [pebbles], sealed with glue solvent, colorful surroundings, minimal background --style raw.

Example Prompt: Eco-Minimalism interior design, minimal environmental footprint, dark tone color palette, clutter-free, --ar 16:9.

Example Prompt: Astronaut finds a lake nearby, His face is filled with joy looking at the water, dark neon environment.

Example Prompt: product photography of Perfume, minimal, clean background, focus stacking, Vignette.

It’s been a week since its release and people are experimenting with possible outputs and it's yet soon to come into any judgments. The dev team has announced that minor updates and changes to the platform in terms of features will come unannounced. We just need to keep checking the platform and test out other supporting features when and how then come in. Till then, Happy Prompting.
