During the call, we had a look at how to use Midjourney to generate images using Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Midjourney is a paid tool, basic subscription is about 8 euros/month. Free alternatives you can try are:
- Adobe Firefly - https://www.adobe.com/sensei/generative-ai/firefly.html
- Stable Diffusion - https://stablediffusionweb.com
- Blue Willow - https://www.bluewillow.ai
- Night Cafe - https://nightcafe.studio
- Lexica - https://lexica.art
- Playground AI - https://playgroundai.com/pricing
*note, I haven't been testing these sites yet 🙂
Please, note, that we don't use AI to generate food photography images for our clients or for our Instagram. We use AI to get inspired, to build a mood board, find an idea that we have in our head, and see how it could look like.
During the call, we mention:
- how Midjourney works,
- how to write prompts to generate images
- how to upscale, create variations, download the images
- and, we also saw how to retouch them in Photoshop 🙂
To generate an image, you need to start: /imagine then, you write your prompt.
To create a specific aspect ratio, add: --ar 2:3 (or any aspect ratio you wish). Other information you can add: CAMERA MODEL: Canon EOS R5 | CAMERA LENS: 75mm f/ 2. 8 | SPECIAL EFFECTS: Ultra - detailed, ultra - photorealistic, --ar 2:3
Please, be patient when generating images 😅 it takes a lot of time!
You can also generate image, based on the image you upload. To do that:
- click on the + icon next to your message; upload an image to Midjourney and click enter to send your image
- click on the image you sent, open it in a browser
- copy the link of that image and add the link to a new prompt you write.
You can also ask Midjourney to write a prompt based on an image you upload, you need to start typing: /describe
