MidJourney is an innovative AI Art platform for generating unique and creative images using text prompts. The service operates on top of the Discord platform, where users interact with the MidJourney Bot utilizing a variety of commands.

I put together this MidJourney commands list to help you make the most of your time on MidJourney.

Basic MidJourney Commands List

MidJourney offers several basic Discord commands that are easy to use and understand. To use a command, enter it into the Discord chatbot.


This is the command that lets you sign up for a MidJourney subscription plan from within Discord.

Get an answer to a question directly from the MidJourney Discord bot.


This command enables you to blend two images together easily. Some examples include combining a background and a subject, combining people, and swapping out a face.

The magic happens by uploading your images into the Discord interface and hitting enter. You can add additional prompts to guide the blending process if you want to.


This command provides helpful basic information and tips about the MidJourney Bot.


This is the main starting command used to generate an image using prompts. It must be used for every new image generation.

This command allows you to switch to “Fast mode” so your images render more quickly. Each user has a limited amount of fast time, so keep an eye on it.


This command lets you switch to “Relax mode,” where images take longer to render but don’t count against your fast time. Relax mode is a good option when you want to max out your unlimited plan. I regularly let image generation run in Relax mode while I’m using Photoshop or doing another task on the computer at the same time.

/stealth (OR) /private

This command is for Pro Plan Subscribers and allows you to switch to Stealth mode. Stealth mode keeps your images from showing up on the MidJourney website.

If you’d like to also keep them private on the Discord server, use direct messages to the MidJourney bot or use your own private Discord server when creating images.


This command is for Pro Plan Subscribers and allows you to switch to Public mode when in Stealth mode.

Advanced MidJourney Commands List

MidJourney also offers advanced Discord commands that provide more complex functionality. These include:


Use this MidJourney command to turn on notification pings in Discord for the #daily-theme channel update. If you decide to turn this on, you’ll get a new theme daily that you can try and create with MidJourney.

A new challenge can increase your skills, and it’s kind of fun to share your creations with everyone else participating in the challenge.


Get four example prompts based on an uploaded image. From there, you can choose to create new images from the image prompts MidJourney wrote for you. It’s a helpful feature to recreate the look or style of an image you already have.

See the blue numbers (1-4) at the bottom in the example below. Click on any that you like to create a new image in MidJourney.

Use an image’s job ID to regenerate the job within the MidJourney Discord bot. It only works on your own jobs. Once you have a job ID, you can give an old job a makeover, make new versions of it, upscale it, or use newer parameters and features that weren’t available originally.

MidJourney Show Job ID Command

You can find a job ID by looking at the last part of the URL when viewing an image in your MidJourney gallery or reacting to an image with the envelope emoji. Using the envelope emoji will also give the seed number. Watch for the message notification to appear in Discord after using the envelope emoji.

This command allows you to toggle Remix mode. Remix Mode is a fantastic feature that allows you to modify prompts, parameters, model versions, or aspect ratios between variations. It’s like having a magic wand that lets you change the setting or lighting of an image, evolve a subject, or achieve tricky compositions, all while keeping the general composition of your starting image.

MidJourney Parameters List

In addition to commands, MidJourney also uses parameters within the prompt that can be used with the commands to refine the output. All of these parameters are included in my free Commands List Cheat Sheet.

Some example parameters include:

  • Aspect Ratios (–aspect, or –ar): This MidJourney parameter allows you to specify the aspect ratio of the generated image.
  • Chaos (–chaos): This parameter allows you to control the level of variability in the initial four results that are generated each time a job is run. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for and need ideas, use higher chaos. Higher chaos will produce results that are more creative and unexpected. Lower chaos is more repeatable and expected. For reference, –c 10 is low, –c 25 is moderate, and –c 50 is high.
  • Quality (–quality or –q): This parameter allows you to choose the amount of rendering quality time desired in MidJourney v4, v5, and Niji 5. This parameter doesn’t affect image resolution, just the detail level of the final rendered image. The default setting is 1.
  • Seed (–seed): This parameter allows you to specify the seed number used to generate the initial image grids from visual noise. You can assign any number you want and refer to it during the same session. It’s used to get the same style of output during initial image generation.
  • Stop (–stop): This parameter allows you to terminate the job partway through the process to produce blurrier, less detailed results. This is helpful for some kinds of images where you don’t want to see a lot of detail.
  • Style (–style): This parameter allows you to choose between all the different versions of the MidJourney: V1 to Version 5.1 plus Niji models 4 and 5.
  • Stylize (–stylize or –s): The stylize parameter allows you to adjust the strength of Midjourney’s default aesthetic style applied to jobs. Want to give MidJourney permission to be more creative and deviate from the prompt a bit? Use a higher value. The range for MidJourney v4 and v5 is from 0-1000, and the default setting is 100.
