6 Ways to Get Inspiration for Midjourney Images & Prompts

1. Midjourney's Community Feed

If you're a paid subscriber to Midjourney, this will probably be the most used tool to get prompt inspiration.

The Community Feed!

The reason it's so popular is that Midjourney is showing prompts as well, so you can get even more inspiration.

For example, here's the prompt for the image with the water:

Monochrome depiction of a serene lake against a mountainous backdrop. Elaborate scenery with meticulous details, featuring a minimalist and creatively designed layout. Shapes are clean and simple. The background exhibits pure high details. --ar 9:20 --style raw --stylize 750 --v 6

Now scroll through that, and click on any image that catches your eye to see the prompt they used. Here's how to copy a prompt:

For even more inspiration, you can visit their Midjourney Gallery to see all the images that that person created with Midjourney.

Simply hover over one of the images and click on their profile name:

Then you will be redirected to their Midjourney Gallery:

Bonus tip: Using the 'Search prompts' feature to get a ton of inspiration

Don't forget to use the new 'Search prompts' search bar in the top right corner.

First, you can type a keyword in the search bar if you're looking for something specific.

For example, if you're looking for coffee-related images, you can type in coffee:

Using the search prompts search bar with a keyword example

But that's not all!

You can copy a prompt from one of the images you like on the Community Feed page. (Or one of your own prompts!)

Then paste the full prompt in the 'Search prompts' search bar (in the top right corner):

Using the search prompts search bar with a prompt example

Here's the full prompt:

ultra realistic, dark scene, street faucet come out luminous star fish marine with tap water , ultra realistic, radioactive mutation sea fishes sticked at water damp concrete∷5, photorealistic, octane render, action shot emerging out of wet and humid. cinematic lighting, photorealistic, octane render, unreal engine unreal engine, hyper detailed, volumetric lighting, hdr. closeup wide angle scene photo upshot flash, fast shutter, intricate fur. tndall light effects surreal! super detailed, colorful, 8k, artstation trend, d & d, fantasy, ray tracing, depth of field, bokeh, iridescent accents, vibrant, award winning, anato finnstark and marc simonetti, spectacular lighting, octane rendering ,8k --ar 9:16 --style raw --stylize 500 --v 6

Another option is copying the Job ID from an image you find. (Or your own!)

Here's a copy from the same image:

3e734b4f-1aea-4ade-b228-d919bd2056a1

Here's what you will get then when you search for the Job ID from that image in the 'Search prompts' search bar:

And now, you can click (or hover) on each of these images and repeat the same process to get even more inspiration.

Just imagine all the possibilities!

It's a great way to get inspiration for related prompts. For example, what if you like this image and want more related images:

Community Feed image example

Simply copy the prompt or the Job ID and go back to the 'Search prompts' search bar:

Community Feed image example using it in the Search prompts feature

Here's a copy of the Job ID that I copied:

223d1d34-45de-4a58-8672-0ad96cc1f36e

And yes, if you're wondering, this works on all images. Not just your own created Midjourney images!

Another option is pressing the 'Search Image' button; that will almost work the same way.

But instead of searching by the Job ID or prompt, it will search by the filename automatically for you.

2. Midjourney's Community Showcase

Next up is a smaller but still great one; the Midjourney Community Showcase.

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:

As you can see, the Community Showcase is full of inspiring images with the related prompts that were used to create that image.

However, keep in mind that if you're not a paid Midjourney subscriber, then you can't click on the image and can only see the part of the prompt if the prompt is longer than three sentences:

3. Get inspiration via Social Media

Next up is fun; let's go to a few Social Media platforms to get inspiration.

Basically, you can go to any platform you know, type in something related to Midjourney or AI art, and find a bunch of posts or videos!

We will go over a few of the most popular ones below but don't forget that there's more out there—for example, Pinterest and Facebook Groups.

Note: Keep in mind that most people just share their (amazing) AI images, but not all of them will share how they have created them.

Twitter

Let's start with Twitter, one of the most popular ways to get inspiration (and learn more about AI).

Here are three great examples to get you started:

To find more, search for keywords like Midjourney:

https://twitter.com/search?q=midjourney&src=typed_query

Or you can search via hashtags:

As you can see, many people share their tips and tricks here!

Instagram

The Midjourney Gallery Instagram account

Next up is using Instagram!

Here are two great Instagram profiles to follow:

Another option is to search via hashtags like:

  • #midjourneygallery
  • #midjourney
  • #midjourneyart

For more great accounts to follow, check out our list of the best AI art Instagram accounts here.

Reddit

Let's continue with Reddit!

One of the main subreddits for Midjourney currently boasts around 1.1 million members. You will find it here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/midjourney/

Here you can scroll through the latest posts, or you can go to the top posts of, for example, this month:

https://www.reddit.com/r/midjourney/top/?t=month

This can be a great way to get inspiration for new images to create, and sometimes you will find posts with prompts as well:

You can click this link to search for people who mentioned 'prompt' in their title or description. (This means they are sharing their prompt in that Reddit post!)

TikTok and YouTube

Next up is TikTok and YouTube.

They work the same way; a ton of people share (in video format) how they made certain images!

For example:

Advanced Midjourney V6 + Magnific AI Guide (Is This the Real Life or Just an AI Image?)

Here are two links to get you started:

4. Get inspiration via Midjourney's Discord server

Where do most people create images with Midjourney?

On Discord, of course!

Since you can't use Midjourney without Discord, this will be a great place to get inspiration for your next prompting adventure.

Do keep in mind that not everyone is creating images via the official Midjourney Discord server; some people are using Midjourney more privately.

However, there's still plenty of inspiration!

Just go to one of Midjourney's Discord Channels, scroll, and see if you can find anything that piques your interest:

Prompt example inside the Midjourney Discord newbies channel

They also have a few more channels, like the v6-showcase:

Prompt example inside the Midjourney V6 Showcase channel

Note: Keep in mind that you can use the tips to find your own Midjourney images for this as well! For example, you can type a keyword related to what you want to create in the Discord search bar.

Another good-to-know thing is that if you found someone on Discord who is creating amazing-looking images, you can find their Midjourney user profile via these tips here. (Their Midjourney Gallery)

This way, you can get even more inspiration!

5. Muzli's Midjourney posts on Medium

Next is a small but great tip; go to this link here!

There you will find many Medium posts with inspiration for your next Midjourney image!

The great thing is that they add both a great image for reference - but also the prompt under the image:

6. Get inspiration via art showcase websites

Inspiration for Midjourney via Behance

Last but not least, you can go to one of the art showcase websites artists use — to see what everyone else is creating.

The only thing to note is that some images uploaded here are enhanced using an AI image editor or tools like Photoshop or Blender.

Here are three great websites to get you started:

Tip: Instead of searching only for 'Midjourney', you can also search for things like 'AI', generative art', and 'AI art'.

Keep in mind that it's a bit harder here to get the prompts that people used to create these images, but you can still use them for these things:

  • Get inspiration on what kind of images you want to create.
  • Challenge yourself to create the same kind of image via Midjourney without knowing the prompt.

One extra tip is to use Midjourney's Describe feature.

This command will ask Midjourney's AI to describe the image that you've uploaded (like one of the images from the websites linked above) - this way, it's easier to re-create the image!

For more information about this great feature, check out this article here!

Since you came so far in this article, I want to give you one more pro tip.

If the person who uploaded or shared the image somewhere didn't change the filename, there's a way to find their Midjourney Gallery and copy the prompt that they used to create that image!

Midjourney inspiration: FAQs

Before we close off this article, let’s quickly go over a few key questions people have when they want to get inspiration for their Midjourney prompts and images.

Who knows, maybe this will answer one of the questions you had as well!

How do you make Midjourney realistic?

One of the best ways to get realistic results from Midjourney is by using lighting and lens descriptions.

For example, you can add things like 'in hyper 4k detail', 'image is to be photo realistic', 'photo realistic', and 'detailed hyperrealism'.

How long should Midjourney prompts be?

Midjourney has a soft maximum of roughly 60 words. Using fewer words increases the likelihood of the image matching your desired outcome. (Here's more information)

Can you get banned from Midjourney?

If you violate the code of conduct, Midjourney reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access at any time. For a list of banned words, check out this article here!
