Just like us, ChatGPT needs a good understanding of what Midjourney is and how the program works before it can provide effective prompts for it (Midjourney was created after the chatbot after all). In the ChatGPT chat box, for example, Metaroids began by informing it “I’m going to create AI images. But I’ll be feeding you information first.” The chatbot responded in its usual eager-to-please way (“… please provide me with more information about your project so that I can better understand your needs and assist you accordingly”).
What information does it need? The Explore Prompting guidance provided above can be simply pasted into the chatbox, as well as that which precedes it.
The Prompting Notes section on Midjourney’s official website, in particular, will help the program, as it also runs down some things to avoid or be aware of (“If you ask for a party with “no cake,” your image will probably include a cake … If you want to ensure an object is not in the final image, try advance prompting using the –no parameter”) that ChatGPT can take into account when forming its prompts.
