Perhaps you’ve already used up all your 25 trial credits but you’ve gotten so addicted to it that you want to continue writing prompts.

In this guide, you’ll learn how the Midjourney free trial works as well as what the different paid plans will get you.

Is Midjourney Free?

WARNING: Trying to circumvent the Midjourney free trial limit is against Midjourney’s terms of service. Using any prohibited methods may get you permanently banned from Midjourney. If you enjoy using Midjourney, support the team by subscribing to a paid plan.

Midjourney is free to use for anyone who wants to give it a try, however, this free trial is limited to 25 requests.

You can think of requests like a certain allowance of credits.

Every time you interact with the Midjourney Bot, it counts as a request.

So, for example, if you use the /imagine command and enter a prompt that Midjourney then uses to generate 4 image variations, then that counts as 1 request.

However, if you click any of the buttons below the images in order to create new variations or upscale some of them, each interaction also counts as a request.

25 sounds like a lot but once you start using Midjourney, the number of requests tends to stack up pretty quickly and it’s not always enough to properly make up your mind whether you want to continue using it or not.

So yes, you can use Midjourney free of charge initially, but you’ll eventually have to subscribe to a paid membership if you want to use it more extensively.

But what if there was another way to get your hands on some extra free requests?

Well, there’s a method that will allow you to use Midjourney free of charge for a little bit longer, but since there’s a significant risk of it being exploited, we’re not going to share it here.

It’s not very convenient and it’s also clearly against the terms of service, so please don’t attempt this unless you want to get banned.

Key Points (tl;dr)
  • Midjourney is free for anyone who wants to get started and give it a try. However, the free trial is limited to 25 jobs per account.
  • There’s a way to get access to additional job credits if you’re still on the fence. However, we strongly advise against it, since it will most likely get your account banned.
  • If you enjoy Midjourney and want to use it more extensively, please subscribe to a paid plan that supports the creators. Monthly subscriptions start at an affordable $10 per month.

How to Get Access to Midjourney for Free

WARNING: Trying to circumvent the Midjourney free trial limit is against Midjourney’s terms of service. Using any prohibited methods may get you permanently banned from Midjourney. If you enjoy using Midjourney, support the team by subscribing to a paid plan.

The Midjourney free trial has no time limit, but you’re restricted to 25 requests.

Once you use all of them, you have to subscribe to a plan if you want to continue.

If you happen to have a second Discord account (many of us do), then you could technically just join the server again and get another 25 requests.

They won’t be linked to the same account but you’ll be able to play around with the AI.

While this technically works and lets you continue to use Midjourney free of charge, I do not recommend it because you are very likely to get banned.

If you really like Midjourney then please go subscribe to a paid plan.

Considering what you’re getting for the price, it’s really not that expensive.

UPDATED on 20 December 2022 to reflect the additional of a third “Pro” plan. It gives you 30 hours of Fast GPU time for $60/month and includes “Private Mode”. It also looks like the “Corporate” plan may have been removed for good, although this has not been confirmed.

Listen, even though you’re obviously looking for a way to use Midjourney free of charge, I still think you should get a paid plan if you really like it.

These are cutting-edge tools and the creators should be rewarded for their hard work.

Can I Change or Cancel My Midjourney Subscription?

You can change your subscription plan at any time and it will take effect immediately.

Any remaining requests, GPU time, or time on Private will automatically be credited to your new plan.

This does not apply to Corporate plans since they are specifically set plans for a year and cannot be downgraded.

That means you’ll still be able to use your subscription until the official end date.

If you accidentally canceled your plan, you can also reactivate it before the end of the billing cycle.
