Midjourney has introduced a new feature called "Style Tuner". This feature allows users to create their own styles and reliably apply them to new image generations.
The Style Tuner affects various aspects of the generated images, such as colors and character details. Users can tweak the tuner for specific calls or settings, non-square aspect ratios, and even image and text prompts in raw mode.
Using the Style Tuner
To use the Style Tuner, type "/tune" followed by a prompt. The number of basic styles to be generated can then be selected, with the cost being proportional to the number of styles selected. After confirming the selection, the estimated GPU time is displayed before the job is executed.
On completion, a customized Style Tuner web page is created, and its URL is sent to the user via direct message. On the Style Tuner page, the user can select the styles they like to create their own personalized style. For each style, there is a style code on the web page.
Users can then apply the selected style code to a new image by typing "/imagine" followed by the style code, for example "/imagine frog --style CODE".
The following example shows how to apply a generated style code to a central subject, a children's book painting style frog. Style selection and style code can be viewed here.
According to Midjourney, styles may only be optimized for certain prompts and may not always translate to other prompts as intended. For example, a style optimized for cat images may not work for city images. However, Midjourney says it should work well for dog images.
In addition to the main function of the style tuner, the command "--style random" can be used to create random style codes without using the style tuner on the web page. Multiple style codes can be combined with the command "--style code1-code2". The strength of the style code can be controlled with the command "--stylize".
Users can access the Style Tuner page of any style code by appending the code to the end of this URL: "https://tuner.midjourney.com/code/StyleCodeHere". Using a Style Tuner URL created by someone else does not cost Fast Hours, unless the codes are used to generate images.
