Here’s how to create your first AI art with Midjourney:

Step 1: Log in Discord

Discord is a popular communication platform designed for gamers, but it has evolved to be used by people of all backgrounds and interests. It allows users to create their own virtual “servers” or join existing ones, where they can communicate with other users via text, voice, and video.

If you do not already have a Discord account, go to https://discord.com/ and download it, or Open Discord in your browser.

Step 4: Enter a Newcomer Room

Next, enter a newcomer room by clicking a room name under NEW COMER ROOMS. I chose the room named newbies-153, but any newbies room should work. You can see AI art created by different people in the room. What you created in the newbie’s room is visible to others as well.

Step 5: Create a Conversation with Midjourney Bot

If you prefer to create AI art in private instead of a newcomers’ room, right-click Midjourney Bot and select Message. Please note that DMs with the Midjourney bot are public on the web gallery by default.

Choose a plan and finish purchasing the subscription. Then go back to the direct message with Midjourney Bot on Discord.

Step 7: Generate AI Art

The AI art can be generated by writing prompts in the message. All the prompts start with /imagine. I used the prompt In a purple and orange themed surreal landscape, a robot is painting a picture.

And here are the four generated images:

Step 8: Refine Images

There are two ways to refine the images, creating variations and upscaling the image to higher resolutions and more details.

Below the AI-generated images, there are two rows of buttons. The buttons starting with V indicate variations and the buttons starting with U indicate upscalings. The button with the blue square is for regenerating images.

I would like to create variations for the first image, so I clicked V1, and four new images that are slightly different from image 1 are created.

Out of the four variations, my favorite is the third one, so I clicked on U3 and upscaled it. The upscaled image has more details, including the colorful falling leaves. There are other options available for more variations and upscaling, but I am happy with this one and will use it as the final image.

Step 9: Download AI-generated Image

To save the image, we can either right-click on it and select Save Image or copy the link to the image and use it directly.

Midjourney is an excellent tool, but it requires a paid plan and can only be used through Discord. For those who prefer a free alternative, I will be creating a new tutorial on how to create AI art using a different tool.
