October 06, 2022

Artificial intelligence (AI) image generation tools are becoming increasingly popular and are a great way to create unique and engaging images. In this article, we will walk you through the process of creating your first AI-generated image using the example tool "Midjourney".

Step 1: Sign up for Discord

The first step to creating your first AI-generated image is to visit and sign up for an account. You will need to enter your email address and create a password. You'll also need to download the Discord application to your computer.

Step 2: Join Midjourney

Visit the website and click on the "Join Beta" button. You will be redirected to the Midjourney Discord channel. Find and enter any of the 'Newcomer' rooms in the sidebar.

Step 3: Configure your settings

Type in /settings and press enter. You will be presented with a list of settings that you can configure. We recommend that you leave the default settings for now. You can change these at any time.

Step 4: Generate your AI-generated image

Once you have selected your settings, you are ready to generate your AI-generated image. To do this, type in /imagine prompt:painting of a puppy and press enter. Midjourney will use your input data and settings to generate your AI-generated image, which will be displayed within seconds in the channel. Keep in mind that everything you generate with Midjourney is public unless you subscribe to the paid plan that adds the option of privacy.

Step 5: Explore variations or upscale

Once your AI-generated image has been generated, you can press the buttons labelled V to explore further variations similar to one of the images created. Or select U to upscale the image to a higher resolution.

Step 6: Download your AI-generated image

Once your AI-generated image has been generated, you can download it to your computer by selecting the image, and then click "Save Image" in the right click menu.

In summary, creating your first AI-generated image with Midjourney is easy and straightforward. Simply sign up for an account with discord, join the Midjourney beta and then generate your images. With a little practice, you will be creating stunning and unique content in no time!
