About Discord Commands

Interact with the Midjourney Bot on Discord using a Command. Commands are used to create images, change default settings, monitor user info, and perform other helpful tasks. The /imagine command generates a unique image from a short text description (known as a Prompt).

Respect the Community Guidelines. Community guidelines apply wherever the Midjourney Bot is used.

Using /imagine

  1. Type /imagine prompt: or select the /imagine command from the slash commands pop-up.

  2. Type a description of the image you want to create in the prompt field.

  3. Send your message.

Prompting Tip!

The Midjourney Bot works best with simple, short sentences that describe what you want to see. Avoid long lists of requests. Instead of: Show me a picture of lots of blooming California poppies, make them bright, vibrant orange, and draw them in an illustrated style with colored pencils Try: Bright orange California poppies drawn with colored pencils

6: Accept the Terms Of Service

The Midjourney Bot will generate a pop-up asking you to accept the Terms of Service. You must agree to the Terms of Service before any image will be generated.

7: Processes the Job

The Midjourney Bot takes about a minute to generate four options.

Midjourney uses powerful Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to interpret and process each prompt. When you purchase a subscription to Midjourney, you are purchasing time on these GPUs. Each time you create an image you use some of your subscription's GPU time. Use the /info command to check your Fast Time Remaining to see your remaining Trial time.

8: Upscale or Create Variations

After the initial image grid has finished generating, two rows of buttons appear:

U1 U2 U3 U4 U buttons upscale an image generating a larger version of the selected image and adding more details.

V1 V2 V3 V4 V buttons create slight variations of the selected grid image. Creating a variation generates a new image grid similar to the chosen image's overall style and composition.

🔄 The 🔄 (re-roll) reruns a Job. In this case, it would rerun the original prompt producing a new grid of images.

9: Create Variations or Favorite Your Image

After using upscaling an image, a new set of options will appear:

Make Variations Web ↗️ ❤️ Favorite

Make Variations: creates a variation of the upscaled image and generate a new grid of four options.

Web: Open the image in your gallery on Favorite: tag your best images to easily find them on the Midjourney website.

10: Save Your Image

Click on the image to open it to full size, and then right-click and choose Save image. On mobile, long-tap the image and then tap the download icon in the top right corner.

All images are immediately available to view on
