Transcripts

1. Introduction: Hello and welcome to the exciting world of me, Tony, My name is Philip states, and I will guide you through this course. I have designed this course to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to create impressive images with Mitch journey, this course will help you to elevate your understanding of mature early and prompt creation. We will start with the basics explaining terms like prompt engineering and prompts. Then I will show you how to connect Mitchell and with this quote and use it privately so that you can start prompting. Later. I will show you how to create your first prompts. And then we will dive into prompt improvements so that you will be able to create exactly those results. You have ambition in your hat, because only when you can truly bring your ideas to life with me, Tony, can you really start utilizing the tool and make the most out of Machete? So I will show you and you will learn how to incorporate the style of famous artists into prompts. Use camera perspectives and camera settings to copy the work of famous photographers. And of course, it will also learn how to evoke specific moods with emotions. Of course, you can watch this course passively, but that is likely not the most effective way to truly acquire new knowledge. So that's also the reason why I'm including some practical examples you can try to use and tried to apply. So that's acquiring the knowledge you will learn in that course becomes easier. This way, you should be able to learn faster. You can also complete this course at your own pace and revisit the lessons when Amber, you have questions or need clarification. By the way, feel free to reach out to me at anytime. Well, that's my introduction. So let's not delay any further and dive right into the first lesson. See you there. 2. What are prompts?: What is the prompt image journey? Well, a prompt that's a short tax command you are using as a user when working with the AI tools like midtone or chat GBT, e.g. we have here a short text, and if we entered here in the Discord server, the mutually bot will interpret it and create an image out of debt tax command. In this example, we have a chaplain is cartography with a Japanese sword. It's figurative simplicity in the Yucca art. And here you see the results. You see what Mitch journey did with the prompt I have entered previously. But how exactly does this work? How can we actually interpret this text and generate images out of that tax command? For doing so, the imaginary part is dividing the words and phrases in a prompt into smaller pieces that are known as tokens. And these tokens are then compared to the parts training data and then used to create the image. So median is trained with some billions of pictures and images as training stator. And then when you're entering a prompt attacks commands, it tries to create the most probable, the most likely tokens for that command. If you wish to improve the quality of your generated images, the first thing you should do is to improve the quality of your prompts. To add more details that can be interpreted correctly by the midtone bots. So excluding words that are not necessary for the desired results and include words that helps the midtone part to understand what you want to have better. E.g. you could start with including a certain style or art style, like we did here with occur art, which is a certain Japanese art style. We could also now add some colors you want to have in the image. We could make it realistic for photography, or an oil painting or an impressionistic painting. You see there are thousands of options and I will try to show you as many as possible in this course. But of course, that's just, there will just be an example of all the possibilities you have. Your prompts, you are telling me, Johnnie Walker, to generate. The more detailed your prompts are dead, that mutually knows what it should do. So the key is to be able to prompt correctly. In the end, when you're doing prompt engineering, you have to do a lot of trial and error. You have to try a lot of different Prompt Configurations to get to the best possible results. So now you have entered your first prompt and midtone will now start generating for preview images. That's the so-called grid mode. Now you could either say Mitch, Any, do another variation, or you could say midtone. Please upscale one of the four options here. You can do that by clicking on one of the foyer. Use here on the bar, U1, U2, U3, U4. And you is standing for upscaling of the image. If I wish to e.g. upscale the second image, this one here, I have to click on U2. I've already done that. And here's the upscale result. In conclusion or as a summary, it's important for you as a user to be really precise with your instructions to Swift instructions you are giving to maturity. The more precise they are, the better your results will be. Additionally to tax commands, they are also parameters you can use the midtone, e.g. here we have two. V5 or S, 500 or 916 kills. Nine toes are all parameters that give additional information to meet you. And if e.g. v5, that's standing for the fifth version of midtone. But of course you could also use older versions of material like V4 or free. That could make sense sometimes because all the versions are a little bit more creative in some ways, ER, That's the aspect ratio. So this parameter is simply telling Mitchell and as the name suggests, which aspect ratio to use. And KOs, here's key has nine. That's a parameter that tells me Tony, how creative or how unusual the results can be. The higher this number is, the more creative will be the output by my journey. With parameters, you can influence the quality to creativity, the aspect ratio, and a lot of many more things in which, in a nutshell, this is what this course will focus on most. So how to communicate more efficiently with maturity and how to use parameters immature need to create even better results. This course will teach you a lot, but of course in the end, you have to put all the knowledge into practice as well to become better at prompting. And yeah, you will not become a really good project engineer with just knowing that theory. No, you have to use missionary, you have to generate pictures, images on a daily basis to improve your skill set. Of course, I know that that's the issue. You should not do that alone without any instruction. That that's why I've created a course to make it easier for you to get into the prompt engineering image journey to help you to have an easiest art, my journey, and to not waste too much money in the beginning because you are exhausting your subscription by generating images that are not really convincing, that are not really that what you wanted to create. I hope with this course, I've created the best possible instruction for newbies immaturity. So if you're ready, let's move to the next video lesson. 3. What is prompt engineering?: What is primed engineering? Well, that term refers to the art of creating precise and efficient prompts for a i2 is like CBT or midtone. Good prompt engineer should be able to create prompts that lead to reliable results in which journey or other UI tools. That's a skill that is needed more and more in today's world. You see you can easily create stunning art immaturity, but it's more difficult to want to create image journey. If you have a clear picture in mind and then create that picture with maturity, you know, the artist of the future might be somebody who is willing a brush, but maybe somebody who can translate creative ideas into prompts that result in the desired outputs. For most people, that might sound like something out of a science fiction or Black Mirror episode or something like that. But in reality, it's a chart that's already paying money to a lot of people. Use it to do engineering for clients, to create customized images, image journey, and others upload the best prompts platforms like prom flat or prompt base or even add c to earn a passive income by selling prompts. And that's also one of the reasons why I've created this course to help you become better in prompting. Either because you need prompt, you need prompting for your chart. Because you are a designer or an artist or a content creator who needs to create images or because you wish to find a way to earn passive income in the future. And as it looks at a moment, earning a passive income if Mitt Romney is definitely an option. 4. Midjourney Subscription - What are your options?: What are the costs of maturity? In which of the three available plans should you choose? As you probably know, there is a basis plan, then there is a standard plan. At first, there's a protoplanet. In the following minutes, I'm going to show you what is included in those plants and which of them is best suited for you, as you knew, for newbies, Mitchell and it is free. So as a newbie, you can use around 20 to 2053 pictures, but then you have to decide which plan to choose. That's because 25 pictures are simply not enough to really work with maturity. Another issue is that a free plan that you cannot commercially use the generated images. And of course, this is always an issue when you want to sell them on all the platforms or monetize seminar two ways. Those are all reasons why you will sooner or later, probably sooner switch to one of the commercial plans of maturity. And now the question simply is, which one is the best? As we see here, the first option is the basic plan that costs eight bucks per month. But of course, just if we pay it annually. So it's eight times 12, which is if I calculate it correctly now, $96 for testing me, Tony, I would recommend to use the monthly billing. So in that case, it's a little bit more expansive, $2 more expensive. So instead of eight box, you will pay ten bucks per month. But what's included in this plan? First? It includes around 200 pictures per month, which is around ten pictures per dollar you are paying to this tool, of course is not a lot. When you're using maturity, you probably will generate a lot of pictures. Most of them, most likely, most of them we will not use for commercial purposes or for any purposes. At least this time gives you the ability to use Search Android images for commercial purposes. You can access the mammal gallery and your pictures will be displayed there. You can even buy more credits and you can have free prompts, a free shops at the same time. So you can generate free time. You can generate free images at the same time, which will speed up your work with me turn insignificantly. That's the most basic plan for commercial users. And honestly, I believe that for most users, it's not enough, it's not included enough. I think for most, the standard plan would be a better choice. This is $130 per month plan. If you pay monthly, the annual billing is less, it's $24 per month. I think it's a really good choice for you. Let me show you here. You have 15 h of first-generation. What does this mean? What fast generation means that when you enter into prompt, the images will be generated between some seconds. In fact, with this gland is no limit for the number of images you could generate. Because after using all your first-generation hours, you can still generate images. With relaxed generation. The only problem now is that it takes a lot of time to generate images. The time, of course, depends on how many people use the tool at the same time. So it can easily take several minutes before you can generate a single image. And of course this way, working with maturity is a bit tedious. Still in theory, you could almost create an infinite amount of images similar to the basic plan. In a standard plan, you can have free image charts at the same time. So you can create lot of images very quickly. But the biggest difference is that you have an unlimited amount of images. You could generate a theory and you have about 15 h of fast generation. Really believe that for most users of midtone, this standard plan is the very best option you can choose. And the 15 h of first-generation should be enough for most purposes. Of course, if you need more fast hours, you can still buy more credits for that. But of course, Danny depends how many more hours you need because you could also change to the next plan. The problem that is causing $48 per month if you're paying annually. If you're getting method built, Dan, it's even 60 bucks per month, That's a bit expensive. Anything it would make sense if you're really using the tool for commercial purposes. And if you're really a power user of the tool and needing that many hours of fast generation, you have twice as many hours of first-generation available, but you're also paying twice as much. So it's actually not the best deal you could get. However, if you're such a midtone power user, it's still the best deal you can get. And for some users, 30 h might not be enough. It would even need more hours, but there's no other plans. So in that case, they would need to buy my hours more first-generation hours manually. So what do I recommend? Well, as a newbie, I think the best thing you can do is you have taken a basic plan, paid ten bucks a month for one month, and then play around with the tool will generate 200 images. Like this tool after tour. After 200 mm, you should know dads, then you can upgrade to the standard plan. Don't stick to the basic plan. I think it's not enough for your purposes, but yeah, I think for you probably the center plan is enough. If you're really power-user using mature and as a team, then you can of course, think about upgrading to the Pro plan. 5. Why are good AI prompts important?: Before we continue with this course, let's ask the question, why is it actually important to write good prompts for tools like Mitch journey or chat GBT. Well, using tools like meta-learning is not for free as we've learned previously. If you're new user in my journey, you have 23 images and then you have to upgrade to a paid account. In the basic plan, you pay about around ten bucks per month. So that means per back you can generate about ten images. So that's still cheaper than most stock pictures. For what you get. It's not a lot of money. But of course, the more efficient you use your prompts, the more money you can save. And there's always a component that is maybe more important than money. It's time because generating images takes some time. And if you need to iterate your prompt several times, you quickly need one or more hours to generate a single picture. And of course, you want to streamline that process. You want to become more efficient and be able to generate images within some minutes. And in that case, it really makes sense for you to use mature need not go to the next stock image platform. In a nutshell, becoming more efficient in prompting immaturity will save you some money, but it will of course, save you a lot of time. And that is the main reason why you should learn that skill and why you should become a good prompter. Because it's also a skill that will be needed more and more in the future. As I stated previously, the artists of the future is not somebody who is willing a brush for painting pictures of doing something like that. And then he is somebody who, she is somebody who is able to communicate with AI tools efficiently. 6. Connectin Midjourney with Discord: How can we connect Mitchell and with Discord and start creating images? If you have already connected your midterm and account with this code, you don't need to watch this video and you can, of course, chapter the next video. But if you haven't done it yet, I will show you how to do it in the next minutes. First, if you haven't yet created a Discord account with now because you will need it later. On the missionary website, we now click on China better. That will connect Mitch journey with discord. So now we have to click and enter. So sorry that is now the chairman version. Just follow the steps, the same steps and the English version and you should be fine. Now, they will verify if we are really a human, not robots. So that's the most complicated part. I hope he believes me. Let's see. And yeah, it looks as if that was successful. And you see the sailing boat in the left sidebar, that's the journey that meet Chinese server. We are connected and you already see the first images generated by Michel new users. If you have never used this quote before, that might look very, very confusing. So a little explanation. So here on the left sidebar, you have different chat rooms or rooms. You can enter. In the middle you see the feet, whether user-generated content is shown, but also information by the midtone admin team. Here, e.g. are the rules you should follow when using Mitch journey. I recommend reading it. I don't think it makes sense now to go through them one-by-one. The most should be self explanatory. So you shouldn't be rude to other people or to the admins. And you should not create new images or bloody violent images. Getting started here in this room, you have a short guide that is showing you how to start generating images in mutually. But if you do want to read the guide, you can simply continue watching this video. Because I'm giving you a tutorial important for beginners. If you're a newbie, you should start using the new channels, like new in 29, 59, et cetera. Because therefore new users of maturity. And yet they like sandbox where you can try out the features, relate to have a look at a more advanced channels. Let's click here on the first new channel. And you'll see it's like a chat feed where users are generating images all the time. Chances are that you are surprised, like I was when I first started using midtone, because I was surprised that it's actually, everything's in public and I am generating images and everybody could see the images and download the images I'm creating. But before you are now stopping using mature and due to privacy issues, let me tell you one thing. You can later when you have a subscription and paying when you're paying for Mitchel, you can late inviting me 20 parts to a private discord channel. And that channel you can, yeah, create images in privacy. But as a beginner who is using Michal Ronnie in the free version where you have about 20 images you can generate for free. Yeah, use the new BE channel and use it as a sandbox where you just learn the basics of maturity. And if you'd like to tool, then upgrade to one of the paid subscriptions and then you can start creating images. So how do you actually start trading pictures, immaturity, easy. You just go to the chatbox and now you enter a slash. And now you enter, imagine. That's command here. You can select it from the list, or you can also of course, type it into the chatbox. And now there's a black box opening with prompt. And here you are going to input the prompt you want to create. If I'm now entering, Enter and what's happening? What's happening? Midtone is giving me an error message and why? Well, easy because I've used all my 23 images in that account. Of course now I will switch to my paid account. And that account over show you how to create images in mitch journey. This account was just now used for showing you how to connect my journey with Discord for the very beginning. I think the only important thing for you to note is that we've slashed. Imagine you can start prompting. So, yeah, feel free to use that command and try out several prompts on your own. Just be aware that you only have about 20 to 25 prompts available in your free account, then you have to switch to a paid account. If you want to continue this course. Of course I recommend to upgrade to one of the paid accounts. You can do it on a monthly basis so that you don't need to pay more than $100 at once and would recommend first testing. It's Mitch journey of course, with the free account, then next stage with one of the paid accounts on a monthly basis and then later when you're sure about the tool and if you really liked the tool and get used to using the tool, of course, Dan, you can switch to an annual subscription, which is a bit cheaper than, than monthly subscription. How do you upgrade to a paid subscription in meta-learning? Well, after we got the error message, the imaginary part, send us a message here you see the left sidebar, maturity bonds. And if we click on that symbol, we see the message is, it's set to us here. Yeah, you're free. Trial has come to an end. Please subscribe. Or we can do now is type in slash, subscribe and Enter. And now we can click on the page here. And that will lead us to the subscription page on the website. And here we see the plants that are available to us. And we will have a deeper look into the subscriptions, into the options you have now, in the next video. 7. Midjourney privacy and connecting a private discord server: When you're starting to generate images in my journey, you will likely do that in one of the public channels of midtone. So what are we seeing here? Well, all the images generated by all the users that are active in this channel. This is of course very confusing and annoying because you're always in this feed seeing new images generated every second, and it's difficult to find your own creations. The first thing you should do is creating your own private server on Discord. Doing this, it's very easy. You click on Add a server, then on create my own. Next for me and my friends. And now we give it a name, let's say mid journey test server. And now we'll click on Create. You could also add an image here. We don't do it now. And we have our server. If you want to search for a server, you see in this left sidebar, we have the list of all the service you are active in or you have created. Good. This was the first step. We have our test server. But at the moment we cannot create images for mature on here because we need first to invite the mutually bots. How can we do that? Well, we have to go back to the midtone channel. And here we are searching for a mutually part. So we are already one of the channels. That's important. You have to go to the channels and then in the user list, on the right side, you see all users and there is the Mitchell need bot. So let's click on the image on the bottom or weight maybe 1 s. For clarification, you will have to be in one of the public channels. So one of the channels from China, 1234 till January 20, user list of those channels. You see the Mitanni, but you add it to a server. Then you select the server. Here, the maturity test server you've created before. We confirm that can be checked. Now, we authorize it. Now. We need to confirm that we are humans and not robots. Today that's not so easy. And capture. What do we need to do? We need to select bicycles. Let's see if I can do that correctly. Check it. Yeah, we are confirmed to be humans. Now, we can return to the mutually tests over. And we see here the mutually part wasn't. Why did successfully. Let's test this with a prompt. Imagine prompt. I want to have a picture of a midtone, but let's see. Yeah, he's starting to work and that's it. So we have our private midtone discord channel and we're the only user. But of course you could invite other users as well if you want. But there's still one privacy issue, because when the midtone Bart has finished generating this image, the image will be shared to the public image Journey gallery. Of course, there's some cases where you don't want this to happen. You could go to the settings. So let's enter settings. And we entered, we have two oxygen stealth mode. In this melt, the images are not shared publicly. Let's do that. Let's activate itself mode. Oh, what's happening? Stealth mode is not included in my plan. Why is that the case? Well, I have the standards plan, but not the Pro plan, and I would need to upgrade to the sixth dollar per month program to have the self mode. We see midtone privacy is a matter of money. Is it worth it? Well, it depends on you. But if you don't want to pay the money, they're still an option you have. Because you could delete images again. You do that by adding a reaction. And you click on x or you type in the X in the bar. And when you do that, the image is deleted immediately. If you want to keep the image, you can always download it to your computer before you delete it from my journey. This way, you can make sure that you're the only one with access to the image. Because when you delete the image from this code, it will be deleted from the gallery as well. This is one option for privacy. My journey without paying 60 bucks per month. I hope this was helpful for you. And the biggest takeaway of this video is how to use me turning in your private discord server. That is one thing you should do immediately if you haven't done it yet. Because using Mitch journey in one of the public channels is really annoying. And it's not fun using micelle it this way. So if you haven't done it yet, do it now. 8. Your first Midjourney prompt: How do we start using Mitch journey? As you've seen when I've showed you how to connect Meacham if discord, you can prompt something in disco by slash, imagine. And then you input your prompt into that black box here, e.g. what do we want to see? Let's say you want to generate Channel National Geographic picture of a lion. So now we have to wait several seconds till mid tone is generating for preview pictures that is called the grid mode. So now we are 93%, as you can see here in the upper right corner. And normally it takes about 1 min till the bot generates the four pictures in the grid mode. Keep in mind, that is the fast mode. So if you have used all the your fast hours and meet journey, you can, in most plants still use the relaxed mode, but that takes even longer. What do we see here? We have four pictures of a lion, a male lion. And they all look very realistic. What you keep in mind, what you should keep in mind here is that that's a very short prompt. And the more specific the prompt is, the more customized the resulting images will be the shore to the prompt and more generic, the images will be. The topic of the course, of course is to teach you how to customize your prompt so that you can really generate the images you want to generate. So in this grid mode now we have four images. And let's see. You want to see more variations of the image where you have the nice gray weather background and the lion is walking towards us. We want to have more variations. What can we do simply? We simply click on v4 because it's 123440 picture in that grid mode. So let's click here. And now we're in a new grid mode. We have now four variations of that fourth picture. And we could continue that. In theory, we could click on e.g. the first image. Of course the second as well. We could click on the third image or even on the fourth image. But let's assume that you actually liked the second image a lot and you want to upskill it. How can we do it? We click on u2. So the use, of course, standing for upscaling. Now mature and is upscaling the image. That's actually really fast in the fifth version. And voila, we have the apps, Kate learned picture. And if you want, you can now save it by right-clicking. But of course it will also automatically saved in your midtone gallery. There's also a privacy mode where that image is not automatically transferred to your image gallery. That how to set up that. That's something I will show you later. And that's how you can generate images, image journey. Of course, that's just a basic introduction. There are thousands of other things you can do to customize the image even more. And that's of course topic for the next videos of this online course. 9. The most important Midjourney commands: In the previous video, I've shown you how to create prompts by inputting slash and imagine. But of course, there are also tons of other commands you could input. In this video, we will have a look at those commands. So let's start with the first one here. So the first ones that are the settings, Let's click here. Let's enter. And now, what's happening? Now? You see tons of options, e.g. the Mitchell new versions, 1,234.5, we see that a fifth version is highlighted in green. So that indicates that we're using it right now. But of course, you could switch to older versions out and get maybe more creative results in January 5 version generates the most realistic results, but some say that e.g. a. Third version is better for creative results. Switching to an older version can make sense if you're not trying to generate photorealistic images. We will have a look at that in one of the later videos, where I will compare the same prompt in different versions. Besides the five versions, you see there are some other versions of maturing as well, e.g. you have Nietzsche for, and Nietzsche five. Those melts or interesting for you if you want to try and read animate based images, we will have a look at that in one of the more advanced videos. There's also empty tests and empty test photo, that mode for more photo-realistic images. But now with the fifth version, I don't think that those Mozah actually really important for you. In the third row, we see that we have the base quality selected. Of course you could change that as well. E.g. to have high-quality that could make sense if you want to create prints. In most cases, the base quality is sufficient. But of course sometimes you want to switch to high-quality. Remember in that case, you're also using more of the fast hours. So producing images always in high-quality can become Catholic quickly. Of course, you can also switch to low-quality. In that case, you are actually not needing so much time for generating images. And that's a more efficient mode to generate a lot of images. For beginners, I think it's a really good mode for testing images. If you want to play around with the tool and not planning to publish the results, that's probably the best mode you can use because you're not really using the fast creation time of your subscription too much style here you have low, medium, high, and very high. And that says we're indicates how creative your prompt will be interpreted by a mature cell with playing around with that option, you can heavily influence, of course, the outcome of your prompt. Of course, with some images that can make sense if I does not, so much of which option you use that's up to you. For most cases I would say math or medium is the best option and it will last row, we see that we are in the public mode. That means that our pictures or Publix, everything we generate will be transferred to the proper Lake Mead Shawnee gallery. Of course, we could switch to the stealth mode. In that case, the pictures or images will not be transferred, will lead to show you how to use that. It can make sense if you e.g. want to monetize your images or your creations and sell them on Etsy or prompt pays. You see that we have activated remix mode. Or what does it mean? Well, if you remix an image in that case, so if mode is activated, mutually will ask if you want to change to prompt personally, I think it's a useful when you're trying to create a better prompt and playing around with different commands. Because in that case it will always do some small minor changes to the prompt before remixing. But it's not something you need. Have four start prompting. Fast mode. You already know that means that images will be generated with him in most cases within 1 min, sometimes less. And that's the standard mode of course. But if you want to save some fast mode hours, you can of course, which toilets low relaxed mode, because in most subscriptions you have unlimited relaxed generation time. But of course, the downside is that in relaxed generation time, creating images takes a lot of time. It can really a nuisance. So I think in most cases, you will rather buy more credits than using the relaxed mode, too much data, the settings, that's how you are adjusting the settings. But later, of course, I will also show you how you can use parameters within prompts. Because if those parameters, you can adjust or set the settings for a specific prompt, e.g. you can say that a specific prompt will be generated in the higher-quality or in a different mode. So let's have a look at the other options. So commands, you can use your blend. What's planned? Well, we've planned, you can blend up to four different images. E.g. we can, I could upload an image of me and the second image of a landscape. And then if a blend both images, I should appear in that landscape. That's of course also something I will show you later in an advanced video. What else do we have? E.g. we have to ask, That's the kind of FAQ version. But to be honest, searching on Google always work better for me than asking something inside my journey. Then we also have info. Here you see some information about your account, e.g. watch subscription. I am having the setup secretion, the chop mode, which is fast, visibility mode public the first time remaining or no, I have a lot of time remaining because it just updated my lifetime usage and relax usage. You'll see I've never used relaxed usage so far. Well, that way the most important commands you will use immaturity. So let's move to the next lesson. Let's start generating some images. 10. How can you improve your prompts?: So let's start prompting. I have now inserted the prompt lion into midtone, and it now has generated the four pictures in the grid mode. When our prompt is really short, like lie on Mitchell need actually doesn't know what we really want. It could be a watercolor picture. It could be an realistic picture of it even could display now a female lion cell, that means short prompts normally result in for diverse options in the grid mode, you start customizing your prompts by adding more details. And that's now something we will do. I've already prepared some examples. So let's have a look. And let's start here. Let's assume that I want to have a photo-realistic picture of alone. In that case, it helps to add a National Geographic picture of alone. Because then you get that high-quality picture there is often displayed in magazines like National Geographic. We see Mitchell did a good job. We have four really realistic looking pictures of loans. And yeah, but in some cases, you actually want to do something else. E.g. you would like to have, like here, an origami scotch off a lion. Of course, there are endless options, are the options that I've used, e.g. where a chocolate scotch of VLAN or a marble sculpture of line. You could also use the skies of artists like here, we've used a Picasso painting of a lounge in the prompt. And it generated images in the style of Newcastle. Maybe another odd expert enough, so I'm not qualified to see if that would be a convincing the castle. So I'm happy to hear your feedback if you're an expert. What's interesting is that we even have the signature of the castle here in the prompt. So at least with the original signature. And now we are. Another thing I did was having a Leonardo da Vinci painting of a lion, which is looking like a sketch of Leonardo da Vinci. For this example, I want to stay with the National Geographic prompt and further develop their realistic picture. And let's add some location. Let's put our loan into a wide West Town. And you see how much Shawnee interpreted that command. Of course, we can use any location, e.g. the mass. But in this case, I don't think it looks so good. Maybe we should need we would need to refine the problem a little bit to make it blend better together. You can also change the elements and put our line underwater, diving underwater. So the problem now is National Geographic picture of a loan diving underwater. And that's one of my favorite prompt ideas to put animals underwater. It's always generating really funny results. What else do we have? Yeah, we can actually make our loan an astronaut and make him wear a space. You, to be honest, I don't like how that looks in the fifth version of maturity. I played around with that prompt little bit more and put the loan in a spacesuit on mass. And to be honest, the astronauts looks good. It looks as if your mask has already landed on Mars, but I don't see alone here. So that's a problem if the fifth version of me, Tony, it's generating really realistic images, but it's not the good in generating creative images of things that do not really exist. For creativity. It can pay off to switch to one of the older versions for me, Tony, e.g. here is our lone astronaut in the Ford version of maturity. And yeah, actually it looks much better. Cli on, in a space suit. It's not perfect, but it's much closer to the idea I had in the beginning. And here is another version, the liner space suit. And yeah, I like that. It's of course less realistic going to fifth version, but it's much closer to the original idea I wanted to create with Mitch journey. If you wish to make your dreams become reality, it can make sense to switch back to one of the older versions. And that's something you should keep in mind when working with Mitch journey. The older versions are much better for creativity. And the new fifth version or even the coming six version, probably Much better for realistic results that are the basics of prompting. Now you should know how to create different styles and mutually how to put your pictures or your objects into locations. How to add e.g. clothes are different scenarios to your idea. And that gives you a lot of possibilities. So the best now is to try it out. Think about some ideas and try and practice. Put them in different places, in different locations. And in the next video, we will look how lighting can affect your images in a very dramatic way. 11. Midjourney: Defining the aspect ratio: In this video, we're talking about the aspect ratio in Midjourney. How you can change the aspect ratio Midjourney. Because if we look at the standard aspect ratio, for example, this prompt, we see it's one-to-one. That means V get squares as aspect ratio. So we have now in the grid mode for squares. And of course, in many circumstances, we would like to have something different because squares are not the best format for most pictures. For example, social media posts need an different aspect ratio than posters or videos. So you have, in most cases, you want to input the aspect ratio with each prompts so that you can customize it to the needs of that very project. So the question is, how can you do that? Well, I will show you in this video. It's really easy and requires not a lot of effort. Or you have to do is entering a parameter at the end of the prompt. So let's show it here with a practical example. I am going to copy that prompt again. And now imagine enter. Let's copy the prompt and at the end with type two minus, so minus, minus a and R. And now we added aspiration, for example, 16 to nine, which is a tubercle aspect ratio for screens. So let's enter and let's wait for the results. And here's our grid mode with 16 to nine aspect ratio. You see how easy it is to do that. Let's try it another time. If a different aspect ratio, this time we are using the opposite. And nine to 16 aspect ratio is actually not the best aspect ratio for landscape or architectural photography. Unless you're having a picture of a skyscraper, normally six to nine, I would use for portraits. But of course in the end is also your artistic choice, which as ratio to use. Unless of course you're forced to use a specific aspect ratio because you need that image for a certain medium, for, for, for video, for a certain social network, etc. will also provide you with a list of the most popular aspect ratio so that you have an idea of what you can use, what are the popular formats? This way you can then later simply copy them into your prompts. Now, our example image is already finished and the thing should be clear how you can do it. Maybe keep in mind one thing you cannot use commas, you have to use whole numbers with the aspect ratio. That's the only limitation. But in fact, for the most popular aspect ratios like four to three to six into 93 to 221 to nine or nine to 16. You don't need to commerce you just using whole numbers. So Midjourney is capable of doing that 12. Lighting and Colors in Midjourney: In a previous video, we have seen different examples of our loan prompt underwater on Mars and in a byte West Town, etc. Now, I want to show you how you can use and utilize lighting to add some traumatic effects to your image. You might know the meaning of photography is actually painting with light. So the basis of every good photography is the right lighting. Lighting can definitely influence the effect of your image heavily. That is true for photography's, but of course it also plays a role in paintings like oil paintings of watercolor paintings. But of course here you might look more at the colors you are using. Are we later show you how to use colors in my journey. But now for the beginning, let's look at some lighting effects you could use to make your images more dramatic. Here, e.g. we have our National Geographic lie on inner white West Town that with disco lighting and lighting. Yeah, I like that effect because it gives it a funky wipe. Normally I would use it more indoor, but even here, the outdoor lighting is interesting. It gives that 50 style to the image. If all the neon lighting, my favorite lighting effect is cinematic lighting. And you see here you have the cinema style lighting, a long dramatic shadows. And it gives your image a very dramatic look here, some mistake with two hats, but yeah, that can happen. But overall, I like those results. If you believed that your image is too boring, just add cinematic lighting and it will make your image way more dramatic. The best time for making photos is the sunset time. And yeah, you can add sunset lighting into your prompt and then you have that golden hour look with the setting sun in the background, the long shadows, a lot of goals, and it looks beautiful in most cases. If you're a photographer, you should already know that. Even if you're new to meet journey, using standard lighting is something that will always make your image more beautiful and give it a really romantic touch. So feel free to use that lighting effect. Besides lighting, you can also use or add colors to your image. We have done it here. We have the standard lighting and with the colors blue and orange. So the typical Hollywood color scheme worked really well in the second picture with blue and orange. Also liked the first one with blue and orange. D others, not so blue heavy thing here you could rewrote to get maybe better results. So let's continue. And here you can have black and white sip here or add even more colors like red and green. But in my opinion, that doesn't look too well a thing, it's a little bit too colorful. So you really have to make sure that your colors are working together. And that is not just looking like some rainbow. In my opinion. Adding Carlos works best if you stick to one or two main colors you want to have in a prompt, if you're using too many colors, It's, normally, it's not looking really good. So let's roll it back a little bit too. Black and white. Yeah, we've seen it before for some seconds. Cia, black and white, of course, also a possibility for colors of non colors. And it gives you that tuple traumatic black and white look. Or you can also say, let's have a Scipio looks more like the brownish look on your picture. That also adds touch off. Having a very old picture in front of you. I think that was popular on Instagram ten years ago. That was a short discussion of colors and lighting in Mitchell's journey. But before we end this lecture, let's make another prompt. Copy that into it here. But instead of the National Geographic picture, we are now typing in an oil painting and we add some colors. Let's see, what do we want to have is red and green. And enter. Let's see what's going to be generated. As I told you in the beginning of this video, when you are not generating realistic photography's, but paintings like oil painting, some watercolor paintings. Of course, colors play a very important role. And you should definitely try to add colors to your prompt. We have here red, and you see that the two colors are dominating the pictures we have here in a grid mode. What would happen if we now add some lighting? Yeah, let's do that and try it out. Yeah, we caught the prompt and now we add cinematic lighting. And let's see how this will affect our oil painting. And you'll see that lighting is indeed heavily influencing the effect of the image. Now it looks way more traumatic and you have a much more dramatic atmosphere in that image. So, yeah, even with paintings, not trust, Don't just to add colors, but also lighting to make it more traumatic. And let's make another test with sunset lighting. Let's see how this will influence our oil painting. You see as a result again, that golden hour atmosphere. But it's still includes the colors we have prompted, red and green. So yeah, that was the result we looked for. And that is the conclusion of our lecture. With adding lighting and Carlos, you can drastically alter the atmosphere and the effect of your images. It doesn't matter if you're using, if you are creating realistic photography's or paintings or illustrations. In all cases, try to play around with lighting effects, with colors. And look how you can influence the atmosphere of your prompts of your images with those ingredients. 13. Realistic Photography in Midjourney: In the previous video, we have seen how to use lighting and cameras to influence the character of the images. One thing we will dive into here is the choice of the camera, but also of the medium you're using for your images, e.g. as we've seen previously, you could use an oil painting or a watercolor painting of the loan debt is here walking through the white West Town. You have already seen it last video that you can also use the lighting for paintings, for oil paintings, like we can see here with cinematic lighting, that gives a totally different character to the fore. Images in that great compared to the other oil painting we have here, where we didn't define any lighting, but only some colors, red and green to be precise. As we have discussed, colors can give, can define the atmosphere of your images. That's very important for, of course, paintings, but it plays a role in photography. Before we have seen a dramatic cinematic lighting. But of course, you can also use the more soft sunset lighting that creates a beautiful golden atmosphere that is really popular among photographers, but also among interests. Of course, you can let your inner artists free and use tons of different styles. Artists size like impressionism, expressionism. You can do a Renaissance painting, you can do cubism. In a more advanced video, I will show you some dozens of studies. I used image journey and you can use them as a template for your own prompts, of course. But let's go back to realistic photography. But because creating realistic images is a topic of high-interest for a lot of people, as it seems to me. What are some things you can add to your prompt to create even more realistic photography's. The easiest way is to just add a portrait photo of photography off allowing this case, this creates a classical portrait shot. And of course, you could also now add some emotion like an aggressive line and that generates a very aggressive loan. Compare to the first image grid where we have to learn relaxing the sun. And now we have here the line in a kind of warrior mode, very aggressive face. You see adding emotion is another way to alter the effect of the image. Here tried using depressing Leon. Yeah, the images, they look a little bit more depressed, more sad. Maybe it's not as striking as the first version with the aggressive emotion. But still, I think people would agree that this is a much more aggressive but more depressed result. Some emotions work better than others. That is also heavily influenced by the object you're using with the line, of course is the results of bad with aggressive, with other animals. You would get probably different recites, of course. For the start we used a very classical photography, portrait photography. Of course, you could also go into a totally different direction. Here, e.g. I. Tried to the prompt refer 360 degree lens. And the result is not really good to be honest. But that's because lion and 3.6 degree isn't really working. That's better. It would work much better for it for architecture, e.g. so as the name suggests, the 3.60 degree lens, it crazy imagery for free or six degree view of the scenario. And yeah, it's much better working for architectural or like e.g. if you want to display a wide West Town, that Yeah. So but of course that's something you should use for very special occasions. It's not really working for most, for most images, for most scenarios you want to create architecture or interior architecture, where you want to see everything in a room, e.g. that could be a good scenario for such a lens. So let's maybe go back to the portray. And of course you can have different kinds of portraits, e.g. close up, portray or close up photography. Adding close-up photography to your prompt will create images with the object, a lion in the foreground and the background will be in the bouquet. It will not be sharp, but a little bit blurred. Pretty similar to close up this awesome macro photography. Sometimes it gets you photography's that are even closer to the object. So a macro lens is a lance that's allowing you to capture highly detailed images of small subtracts very, very close distance, often when I'm using macro lens and the prompt, Actually I'm not getting any backgrounds, but just the object, they're highly detailed picture of the object in the prompt. That's not the case here. And it's probably because I was saying a running loan and of course. Every word in the prompt can actually alter the outcome of your images. So of course you have to take care of that. You're not adding any words set contradict each other in your prompt. You also have macro would be something like drone photography like here. That's not really working with the lung in our work West Town. A thing, It's not even alone here. Let's show some animal. And in the other image, the proportions of the learner totally wrong. It's more like Godzilla alone. So you'll see me, Tony has still some difficulties with proportions. If it's a more unusual perspective, maybe that will change in one of the newer versions in the future. Nevertheless, for some scenarios, drone photography can indeed create stunning results. You're also seeing here that are wide. West Town now is a really modern town in the Southwest of the US. So it's not really falling. The idea, I had read that prompt and you see the fifth version of material is reviewed in creating logical, realistic pictures, but, but not so good in creating more unusual creative settings. To get back to macro, here we have a macro photography, but without the running loan, It's just a line. And you see now there's less background. It's much more focused on the loan, on the hat of the loan itself. So you see how adding or removing something from your prompt can really make a huge difference in the final outcome. That is something you should keep in mind. So less is often more. You should not include unnecessary, unnecessary words in your prompt. So make sure that every word in your prompt is really having an effect on the final outcome. And that's something you should test when you're creating prompts, when you're creating images to keep your prompt clean. And it's something you can test really easily with the seats in nutrient because they allow you to, because they allow you to create more consistent results. So the seats, how to use seats, That's something I will discuss in the advanced section of Miami tonic chord. Knowing how to use seats to create more consistent prompts. And for keeping your prompts concise. That's half a usual e.g. when you are creating problems for customers or if you want to sell products online. Let's continue with my examples because there's still tons of things I can show you to make your prompts even better. E.g. here we have a wide angle or wide-angle photography offer lie on. The wide angle lens is used when you not just want to capture the object, in that case lawn, but a wider field of view. And normally the wide angle lens can capture more than human. I could capture and is a really popular lands, e.g. landscape photography. A striking difference, our portrait shot from beginning is that now with the wide-angle, the background is not in the bouquet. It's not blurry, sharp. And to make sure that the object is at the eye level, Yeah, You can add eye level shot through your prompt so that makes sure that the object is really at the eye level, but in most cases mature and it creates pictures like that is more challenged to have it not at the eye level. We received an ex examples e.g. you could want to have shot from the grounds. In that case, you add ground level shot. That midtone often cannot or doesn't interpret that correctly. So it can have to say extreme ground-level shot To make it even clearer because that phrase helps mature any interpret that more correctly. Variation of ground-level is the low-level shot, like we have seen here. You can also combine both phrases into one shot and you see a low level is actually generating good results like them a lot. Even near that picture is really good and you can have a very aggressive lion. The opposite of low annual is high angle shot. It worked very well with humans, but not so much with the lounge. We have the same effect like with the drone photography. So the proportions are off. The loan is just too big. It's not really creating realistic results. So high angle didn't work in that case, but I managed to do it a bit by saying a shot from 2 m high that created better results. But to be honest, it didn't really convince me. With some other scenarios it work better. You see, when you try to add angles, It's a lot of trial and error until you get the correct results. Most photographers in reality wouldn't shoot a picture of allowing from close-up, but I would rather use a Taylor. Taylor lands. Using the term Taylor lands in your prompt will create the Safari look you may be used to when seen, learn pictures. If you are a photographer you will love the following. You can actually add lens details, e.g. you can say a 20 millimeter lens. And mutually we create images that represent images shot from a 20 millimeter lens, which is a classical wide angle lens. You can also say 100 millimeter. That's more a portray Lance. And we can create more, normally, should create a more portray like image compared to the wide-angle lens. But you can even get more nerdy here and say, Yeah, I want to have an image shot for, shot from Sony Alpha camera with 85 millimeter lens and the focal length of 1.8 m. Really good at interpreting the camera details and land status. And you see the focal length of 1.8 normally creates images with a nice bouquet. And if you want to have that, you should add that to your prompt. So you can go both ways. You can either say, I want to portray or what happened, okay? Or you can just add the camera details and mutually will interpret it mostly most cases correctly. One thing I love about mutual nice that you can, that you can let your inner camera nerd out and e.g. create Rachel pictures, e.g. polaroid photography, which creates this '80s or '90s look. And the funny thing is that toes are the most convincing I patrons because the quality of a real Polaroid is low. So it's hard to tell if you have now an AI Polaroid or the real deal, because the real polarize also have artifacts and look a bit strange and artificial. So the codec 800 films. So if you don't want to create a digital image, but a film photography, you want to create that with AI. You can do that as well. And fake creates classical film photography like it was popular in the 90s or early 2000s before the rise of the digital cameras. Here's an example of extreme bouquet. So as you know, you can either use the camera details of say, CBC bouquet or some other things you want to have in your picture, or you can use both. And that makes the commodity for stronger and make it clearer to meet journey what you want to have. Sometimes that helps to get the desired effect of the image you want to create. So player out of that and use all the options you have available. But of course, don't lengthen your prompt in an unnecessary way. If you repeat commands in different words, only do that to make the desired effect is stronger. So we had a Sony Alpha and here's a Nikon D, a 250. And you'll see we recapped the settings but change the camera model and the other images look different. I'm not expert enough to say that was really the Nikon look or the Sony Alpha lock. So if you're an expert in that realm, of course, I appreciate your feedback and please tell me how good midtone can distinguish between different camera models. So one of the last 6 h is the satellite image. Well, in fact, it's more like it looks more like an image from an airplane. It's not from a real satellite. And yeah, we have the same issues like if the drone photography, it's a really wide West Town. It looks more like a modern town into southwest USA. Yeah, settled images can be great for landscape photography. So if you want to have the satellite look of a sudden landscape for a certain region than that looks nice. And like with the drone photography, the proportion, of course, if you insert alone, they're not really working, but yeah, satellite images. The idea not meant to be used with something like portray shots or with objects that are visible to the human eyes, but more to have a look of a certain landscape or maybe structures from high above. So that was my introduction into cameras settings in my journey. And what you should have learned in the lesson. Instead, you can actually use any camera or any cameras setting to create the desired results. Sometimes the camera angles don't work so well than you. Maybe you have to repeat some commands in different ways to make it more clear for maturity. The awesome thing is that you can actually use any camera and the camera settings. So if you in the past could not afford expensive camera equipment, now you can use that equipment immaturity and shoot pictures. You always wanted to shoot with AI chess for 20 bucks per month. 14. Exploring the Midjourney gallery: So find is course we have seen and learned how to create prompts for midtone and how to improve the quality of your prompts so that you can eventually make money with midtone. Ideally, you have already generated several hundred pictures with immaturity. And if you're at that stage, probably the following question. We look here. How can I access my old creations? Well, that's easy. First, you have discord. And of course in your Discord server you could now scroll back. Tried to finding the old pictures you have created. But that's not the best way to access them. And in theory, you could also use a discord search function to find all the images. Bad. To be honest, I don't think that this code is the best place for finding images you have created there. What's the best way to access your old pictures? Well, simply go to the website of midtone, that midtone.com slash account. When you enter that link into your browser, you will access your home screen. And here you have a gallery if all the images you have created so far, and you have different categories, e.g. you have hot, then you have new top and your top images. And you have favorite images, you have favorited. Important. You are now in the upscale modes. So you see only upscale images and not the grid mode. If you want to see the grid, you have to click on grit. And now all the grids you have created and click at all. We'll show you all images up-scaled and a grid mode. And you see a whole collection. But in most cases you will probably search for upscaled images, not for images in grid mode or not in old. Searching them is maybe too confusing, but you want to have images you already upscaled in the past. I will now show you how to favorite and image. In that way you can find your best images easier. So let's choose one of my photography prompts here. And now all we need to do is click on the heart symbol here. And what the image is favorited. It appears here among the favorites. As before you can, among favorite pictures, you can select just the upscale pictures. Or you can say, I want to see all the pictures script mode, and up-scaled. This way you can easily find your old pictures and the best pictures you've created because they should be among your favorites. But you can also explore images from others by clicking on Explore. That's the community feed and you see the creations from other users. And that can serve as a huge inspiration for you. You see what is possible with me journey because you see tons of ideas. And if you click on an image, we see the prompt that was used for an image. And we can copy the prompt or the full command and re-purpose that for our own France, of course. If you want to become better and prompting, I highly recommend checking out that feed regularly. So you can look at hearts are rising. You can also see e.g. I'll click on new images, but normally the quality of toes is not so high because that adjusts the new creations midtone, so hot and rising normally has the high-quality pictures. And of course top is also something worth checking out. 15. How to use --seed in Midjourney?: In this video, I will show you how to use seat numbers midtone to create more consistent prompts. Your first question might be, what our seat numbers and how can I use them in Mitchell? Joni Mitchell uses seed numbers to create a field of visual noise, like you might know from television static. And that filter is serving as a starting point to generate the initial image crits. For each image is generating a random seed number. And you can enter that into your prompt for saying minus minus seat, and then followed by the number or minus, minus same seat and then followed again by the number. So if the prompt tax stays the same and you enter a seat number, the resulting image will be the same again. But why is that even important? You might ask now, well, let's imagine that we are inputting a prompt, a very simple prompt. Let's see, Mickey Mouse. And we entered once, and then we enter the second time. The second time, the generated image will be different because MIT journey will interpret the prompts a little bit different every time you enter it again. To generate the same image again, you would need the seat number. But now you ask maybe, why do I even want to generate the same image again? I want to generate different images each time. Well, in fact, if you are writing more complex prompts, you actually want to experiment with your prompt text. You want to see what's happening with my image. If I add a word or what, what's happening if I'm removing a word and for seeing the effects of your changes, you would like or you want to have more consistent prompts, of course. Because entering the same prompt again, the if the seed number is the only way to secure or to make sure that you will generate the same image again. And it makes sure that when you are altering the image or the prompt, the resulting image will not be too different from the first image you have created. Because your results and more consistent, you can test the impact of small changes to your prompt. This becomes very important when you're starting to write more complex problems, or e.g. if you are entering the field of prompt engineering. Okay, That's the theory. Let's move to the more practical part of the video. And your first question is probably, where do I get the seed number of my images? For this, we're going to discard again. And I have prepared a picture or an image that's an image of water white in a retro fantasy setting from the '80s. Now we're going to make some small changes to the prompt and see how much that will affect the generated image. But first we need to get a seat number. How do we get it? Where we need to add the reaction? And we click here right top. And we need to click on the envelope or enter envelope. If the envelope emoji is not appearing here in the, in the selection list. And now we click Enter. And that worked. Now, the medtronic bought messaged us and we see the message in the left sidebar here on top, maturity bonds. Let's click here. Yeah, Now that's the message of the bond and we have to chop ID and the seat number. Let's copy that. And now we can go back to our private server. And that's it. That's how you find out the seed number of your images. Important. You cannot do that with other users images. If you want to find out the seed number of an image that was generated by another user, you have to politely ask that user. That's at least for a moment the only way to do that. Okay. Now we know how to get the seat number. But now I'm going to show you what you can do this that seed number. As I told you before, I want to make some changes to the original problem. So let's type in imagine and copy the prompt with the seed number we got before. Okay, let's change some small detail. Maybe we can change the color of the cloak from yellow to what do we type in here, maybe what is with green? Let's have a green cloak and enter. Let's see what's happening. And the image is generated. And we see that there are indeed some changes to the original compared to the original composition of the image. So there are indeed more changes than chance to cut off the clock. So e.g. we have the background that is different and even the character, even worldwide in the foreground, it looks a little bit different. Okay, let's continue with our experiment. And let's see if we can remove some words of our prompt from our prompt. So maybe we can remove words like retro and cheap. And let's enter and see what's happening. Here's our image. And we see that the overall atmosphere is actually not so different from our original. Now hear this from our original image. Of course, it's a little bit different. But it seems that both words cheap and Rachel didn't influence the atmosphere in a strong way. So as a conclusion, we can easily delete them or replace them with words that may be influenced the image or the prompt stronger. But what is important to point out here is that as soon as we make a small change to the prompt, the image, we change as a whole. So we're not going to get the same image just with a minor detail changed like the color of the clock or the atmosphere delighting. Know every minor change we trigger midtone to interpret the image in a different way. Let's do another experiment. We now call up the prompt and I will enter the prompt once without seat number and once we've seed number. No, that's correct. And a second time. But first the seat number. And now we're ready. Let's see what metronome will do now. And I think that's a thing I should stress maybe even more because as soon as you change something to prompt, you will not get a totally consistent results. It's just if you enter the seat number, your result will be more consistent. Okay, now we've got our two images That's with seed number and we see it's pretty similar to the original image. I think it's acts, act the same. And now we have the new or the other one without seat them and receipts, a totally new interpretation of the prompt. So the takeaway of this lesson is that using the seed number will not lead to identical results. If you make minor changes to the image, but it will lead to a bit more consistency because without seat number, the changes would be much more severe. So using a CDMA is helping you to get more consistent results. In mid journey, of course, normally you're not going to create identical pictures or images, again with the same prompt because that's more or less unnecessary. If you want to go back to your image or generated image, you would simply go to the gallery and then download it. But of course, in many cases you want to do some minor changes to your prompt. And in that case, it makes a lot of sense to use seed numbers to have at least some consistency in my journey.
