  2. Select version: To choose the Midjourney version. For example, --v 6 The latest version of Midjourney.
  3. Image ratio: Use parameters like --ar 16:9 for aspect ratio control. This helps define the shape and framing of your images.

Exploring the Full Potential of Parameters

Unlocking Advanced Creative Controls in Midjourney

Midjourney's extensive parameter list offers deep customization for your digital art. Let's look at some additional key parameters:

  1. Weight (--w): Tailor the AI's focus with --w. For instance, --w 2 emphasizes elements before it in your prompt, guiding the AI more precisely.
  2. Chaos (--chaos): Inject unpredictability into your creations with --chaos. Higher values lead to more random and unique outcomes.
  3. Stop (--stop): Control the detail level with --stop. Lower values like --stop 20 result in less detailed, more abstract images.
  4. Horizontal Symmetry (--hsym): Create a mirrored, symmetrical effect horizontally with --hsym.
  5. Vertical Symmetry (--vsym): Apply --vsym for vertical symmetry, perfect for reflections or aligned compositions.

Mastering these parameters can greatly enhance your control and creativity in the Midjourney environment. You can find the full parameters list here.
