However, those who don’t necessarily have a vivid imagination will eventually reach a point where they don’t know what to do.

Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to try to be as descriptive as possible when writing your Midjourney prompts.

For example, rather than just writing “girl with red dress“, you could add more adjectives to your Midjourney prompt so that the AI has more to work with:

/imagine smiling girl with polkadot red dress standing in a corn field

Just look at how different the results are.

That being said, too many details can easily overwhelm the system.

So, although the descriptive text is helpful, sometimes it’s just better to think of an artistic title.

Speaking of artists, Midjourney’s AI also responds to specific keywords that define a certain style.

So, for example, you could ask to imitate the art styles of famous artists such as Vincent van Gogh or Pablo Picasso.

Or, if you’re looking for a specific mood, you could use terms such as “cyperpunk”, “realism”, or “abstract”.

There are a number of categories of keywords and terms that will help you generate images of a particular style.

We take a closer look at these categories and provide you with inspiration in our list of Midjourney prompts.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Before we close off this guide, let’s quickly address some of the most common questions related to crafting Midjourney prompts.

  • How do I try Midjourney AI?

    You can try out Midjourney AI by simply joining the official Midjourney Discord server. Once there, you can create your very first AI-generated image by using the /imagine command and entering a text prompt. This will automatically start your trial of 25 jobs.

  • How do I use image prompts in Midjourney?

    In Midjourney, image prompts are placed right after the /imagine command and before the text prompt. You can use one more URL of images on the internet as your image prompt. Furthermore, by using the image weight parameter (--iw) you can control how much emphasis should be put on the image as opposed to the text prompt.

  • How can I use Midjourney for free?

    Anyone can start a free trial of Midjourney by simply joining the official Midjourney Discord and entering the /imagine command. Once your 25 trial jobs are used up, you can either use a trick to use Midjourney free of charge for another 25 jobs or you can subscribe to a paid membership plan.


As you can clearly see, crafting good Midjourney prompts isn’t as easy as one might guess.

Although it’s fairly simple to create something that generally looks good, it’s a lot more difficult once you want to exert more control over the outcome.

Perhaps some of the examples above will serve as inspiration for your own Midjourney experiments.
