Nuts N Bolts
Explanations and How To's Prompts
Midjourney is an artificial intelligence program created by a San Francisco-based independent research lab Midjourney, Inc. Midjourney generates images from natural language descriptions, called "prompts", similar to OpenAI's DALL-E and Stable Diffusion. It is speculated that the underlying technology is based on Stable Diffusion. The tool is currently in open beta, which it entered on July 12, 2022. The Midjourney team is led by David Holz, who co-founded Leap Motion. Holz told The Register in August 2022 that the company was already profitable. Users create artwork with Midjourney using Discord bot commands.
Midjourney, on the other hand, is a tool best known for its artistic style. Midjourney uses its Discord bot to send as well as receive calls to AI servers, and almost everything happens on Discord. The resulting image rarely looks like a photograph; it seems more like a painting. More useful for artists!
