Always wondered what the Midjourney Gallery, Community Feed, and Community Showcase are and what you can do with them?
In this article, we will cover everything you need to know in 2023.
No matter if you're a Midjourney beginner or have used Midjourney for a bit of time already, I'm sure you will learn something new!
What is the Midjourney Gallery?
The Midjourney Gallery is basically a profile. It's your little piece of the internet where you can showcase your AI-generated images.
And yes, as you might know, Midjourney is an open community — this allows others to use and remix your images and prompts.
So by default, your images are publicly viewable and remixable.
For some, this is a tough pill to swallow, and they will do everything that it takes to keep their Midjourney images and profile private. (For example, directly deleting their images)
However, some might see this as an opportunity to either build up a following or simply share their creations with their friends or family! (More about that below)
Here's how to share your Midjourney Gallery:
- To share your Midjourney Gallery, simply go to this URL here: https://www.midjourney.com/app/
- Then press the ‘three dots in a row' icon, which will show the ‘View as a visitor' button.
- Now copy the URL you've landed on. This is your Midjourney Gallery profile link.
For more information, check out this guide here!
What can others do with your Midjourney Gallery profile?
Here's what others can currently do on your Gallery:
- View your images. They can view all your generated images and sort them by ‘Hot', ‘New', ‘Top', and ‘Favorited'. People can also press the three dots and open the image in a new tab to view the image on full screen (or they can press the ‘Save image' button).
Make sure to let them know to press the ‘All' text button, but the default ‘Upscales' only is great as well.
- Copying a few things. For example, they can copy the Full Command that you used, the Promt, and the Job ID.
- Reactions. Others can give reactions to your created images. Currently, there are four options: Love, Like, Dislike, and Hate. People can also press the ‘Favorite' button, so they can find the images they like on the Explore page here.
- They can follow you. Are you interested in building up a following? Make sure to ask people to press the ‘Follow' button. This way, people can go to Explore and view your images.
- Viewing the Archive. This is a great way for others to easily see what images you have been creating in the past weeks/months. It's organized here per day – here's an example.
What is the Midjourney Community Feed?
Now that you know what the Midjourney Gallery is, let's continue with the Community Feed.
The Community Feed is Midjourney's official gallery!
You can see it as the public profile of all Midjourney users. It features the top trending and all-time most popular images created with Midjourney.
As you might have guessed, it's a great place to get inspiration for your next ‘prompting adventure'. (More about that below!)
How to access the Midjourney Community Feed
If you're logged in and you're a paid subscriber, simply go to this link here:
You will then be taken to the Community Feed, where you can browse all the images created with Midjourney.
Tip: Don't forget that you can sort by ‘Hot', ‘Rising', ‘New', and ‘Top'. You can see both Upscales and Grids — or one of them at a time.
Can you access Midjourney's Community Feed for free?
You don't have access to the Community Feed if you're not a paid Midjourney subscriber, but you do have access to the Midjourney Community Showcase. (You don't even need a Discord account for this!)
The main difference between the Community Feed and the Community Showcase is that the Community Showcase can be accessed by people not paying for Midjourney, and it has limited features, while the Community Feed is only for paid subscribers and shows you more things like which prompt the user used to create that image.
Here are two links to get you started:
However, keep in mind that you only have a few limited options:
- You only have two filter options: Recent & Top. (And you won't see all the generated images)
- You can only view a small version of the image; you can't click on it to view the large image (and download it).
- If you hover your mouse over one of the images, you can only see the prompt (but not the full one if it's too long), the user that created it (you can't click on the profile), and when the image was created – the rest, like seeing the full command that the user used is blocked. Here's an example of what that will look like:
To get more inspiration, you will need to subscribe to one of the paid plans.

Bonus: Getting inspiration by scrolling through Midjourney's Discord channels
One way to still see what others are creating with Midjourney is to go to Midjourney's Discord server.
There you can select one of the channels.
Then, simply scroll and search for images that you like! (You can then also use these tips here to find images related to certain keywords)
How to use Midjourney's Community Feed for inspiration
Let's continue with the greatest part of this article; how do you use the Community Feed to get inspiration for your own AI art?
Let's go over the top tips:
1. Scroll through the Feed to get inspiration
This will probably be the main tip that you're going to use to get inspiration.
You can scroll through the Feed (hot/rising/new/top) and hover your mouse over each image that catches your eye.
By either clicking on the image or hovering over it with your mouse, you can copy the prompt (and full command) — or use a part of the prompt from each image that you like:
I'm sure you will get a ton of inspiration this way.
Here's the command that the example from above used:
Hyper realistic fruit salad falling to the floor in front of a surprised cat, a messy situation, juicy splashing, wet reflective wood floor, translucent fruit crashing and exploding into pulp, shock and awe, cinematic lighting, bokeh, chromatic aberration, vibrant –ar 4:7 –v 5
Once you have an image that you like, you can click on it and scroll down to view the ‘Explore Related' section.
For example, imagine that you liked the cat image from above, and now you're interested in more cat-related images! Here's what you would get:
And now, you can click (or hover) on each of these images and repeat the same process to get even more inspiration!
3. Search for a keyword at the top
If you're looking for something specific, then you can type that keyword in the search bar at the top.
For example, if you're looking for coffee-related images, you can type in coffee:
You can use the ‘Similarity' search, but the ‘Advanced' search option is great as well!
4. Go to someone's Gallery
At the beginning of this article, you learned how to share your Midjourney Gallery and what others can do on your profile, but did you know that you can use the same tips on someone else's Gallery?
For example, while scrolling through the Community Feed, click on the name of the user that created the image to go to their Gallery.
Now you can use the same tips as mentioned above to view all the images that the user created.
This way, you can get even more inspiration if you like a certain style.
Don't forget that you can also follow people and favorite images that you like. This way, you can use one of the following links:
How to save and download images from the Community Feed
Found a great image that you like and what to save it for later?
You can either press the ‘Like' button to add it to your Favorites (as covered above), but you can also download the image!
There are two main ways to download them:
- Hover with your mouse over the image until the ‘three dots' appear. Click on that and click on ‘Save image'. This will directly download the image.
- Click on the image that you like, right-click, and press ‘Save image as…'
How to download Midjourney images in bulk
If you have found a few great images that you want to download, you can also use Midjourney's ‘Download All' feature.
Here's how to use it:
- Simply press the ‘Enable Select Mode' button on the right top corner:
- Select all the images that you want to download. (You can also press ‘Select all')
- Then, press the ‘Open Downloader' button on the bottom:
- Here you can adjust some settings if needed, and then press the ‘Download All' button!
Tip: You can also use this tip to bulk download your own created Midjourney images!
Simply go to your profile (https://www.midjourney.com/app/), and press the same button to select all the images that you want to download. (Or press the ‘Select all' button)
How to get your image showcased on the Midjourney Community Showcase
For now, the main way to get showcased on the Midjourney Community Showcase or Feed page is to keep creating new AI images.
Usually, you will appear under the ‘New' section, but since there are a lot of others creating images at the same time, your image will quickly disappear.
For example, try to scroll through the ‘New' section until you have found an image that was created more than a minute ago:
It takes a while, right?
More is currently unknown; they're actively changing how it works, so the fine details on how are a bit of a gray area.
How to find someone else's Midjourney user profile
To get even more inspiration, besides using the Community Feed, you can scroll through Midjourney's Discord channels (as mentioned above).
But how do you find a specific user on Midjourney?
What if you saw a few great images on Discord but are unsure how to find the rest of the images that person created?
