AI-generated images are becoming increasingly harder to ignore. Midjourney, one of the leading drivers of this emerging technology, can create stunning original images from a short text phrase, known as a prompt, that you provide.

This course teaches everything you need to use Midjourney to generate images, artwork and prototypes for graphic design, websites, social media and pretty much any other purpose.

Beginning with the basics, you’ll learn how to join Midjourney and install Discord, create text prompts and view the images you create. You’ll learn many useful tips and techniques for getting the best results along the way.

Sessions, include:

  • Introduction to Midjourney
  • Setting up your environment
  • Creating images
  • Using styles to enhance your images
  • Crafting effective prompts
  • Using reference images
  • Implementing Midjourney in your workflows

Midjourney image generation training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed course’ for your group. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.

In-class or online

This course is available in-class at eight centres or live online.
