Q & A

  • What is the purpose of the video tutorial by Xiaoyuer?

    -The purpose of the video tutorial is to teach novice users how to use Midjourney to draw with pictures, making the drawing process simple and accessible.

  • Which platform does Midjourney operate on and why is it necessary to install Discord?

    -Midjourney operates on the Discord platform because it is a bot within Discord, an artificial intelligence tool that facilitates the drawing process.

  • How do you upload a picture to Midjourney for generating a similar image?

    -You upload a picture by clicking on the plus sign, then double-clicking to upload the image. After uploading, you click the enter key to send it.

  • What is the process of enlarging the uploaded picture in Midjourney?

    -To enlarge the picture, you click the left button to select it, right-click to copy the link, and then paste it into the appropriate field in Discord.

  • Why is it important to be careful with the format when sending the image link in Discord?

    -It's important because sending the image link directly without the correct format will result in an error, and the image will not be processed by Midjourney correctly.

  • What should be done with the row of numbers in the link before sending it to Midjourney?

    -The row of numbers should be deleted, and you should go to the end of the 'PNG' in the link, delete the part after it, and then add keywords and parameters as needed.

  • How can you ensure that the characters in the generated images remain consistent with the original?

    -To ensure character consistency, you can add the 'IW' parameter with a weight value of 0 to 2, with 2 being the highest for maximum similarity.

  • What does the 'AR' parameter represent and how is it used in Midjourney?

    -The 'AR' parameter stands for Aspect Ratio. It is used to set the desired ratio of the generated image, such as 16:9, 3:4, or 1:1.

  • How can you adjust the generated images if you are not satisfied with the result?

    -If you are not satisfied with the generated images, you can click to refresh and regenerate a new set of images.

  • What does the 'UE' option do in Midjourney and when should it be used?

    -The 'UE' option is used to enlarge the generated images. It should be used when you are satisfied with the images and want to view or save them in a larger size.

  • Why might the characters in the generated images change if not specified with 'IW'?

    -The characters might change because Midjourney generates images based on the input and parameters provided. Without specifying 'IW' to maintain consistency, the AI may interpret the input differently and create variations.
