The latest V4 algorithm from MidJourney is currently making the rounds in the AI art community. The quality and coherency have improved a lot over the previous model. Some users even say MidJourney is now the best AI art generator.

What’s New In V4?

  • Vastly more knowledge (of creatures, places, and more)
  • Much better at getting small details right (in all situations)
  • Handles more complex prompting (with multiple levels of detail)
  • Better with multi-object / multi-character scenes
  • Supports advanced functionality like image prompting and multi-prompts
  • Supports — chaos arg (set it from 0 to 100) to control the variety of image grids

The new model has basically improved on details, composition, and realism. In this article, I’m going to show you how you can use V4 to turn yourself into anything you can imagine.

Let’s hop on to the steps.

Step #1. Upload Your Image

Assuming that you already have a clear image of yourself, head over to the MidJourney Bot section in Discord and click on the Upload File button.
