How to Get Midjourney to Write Text
If you want to add text to your AI images generated in Midjourney, then you can just follow these few steps:
Step 1: Open Discord to Access Midjourney
First things first, open Discord on your device. Once you’ve opened it, look at the top left corner of your screen. If you’re in the Midjourney server, you’ll see “Midjourney” listed there.
In the Midjourney server, you’ll find various channels. You must find the right channel to begin, so look under the Newcomer Rooms section.
Carefully read each channel’s name and click on any channel that includes the term newbies. This is where you will generate your images.
Next, inside the chat window of this channel, scroll down to the bottom and click the text box.
Step 2: Enable V6 in Midjourney
Next up, let’s activate the newly launched V6 in Midjourney.
This version has features not present in the earlier versions, like V5.
For example, now you can add text to images, prompt for more than one subject, talk to it like ChatGPT, and more.
So, to add text to your images in Midjourney, begin by typing
After you hit enter, a settings overlay will appear, showing various options for your Midjourney account.
In this settings menu, look for a section called Current suffix. This area deals with the Midjourney engine versions that your account is using.
You’ll find different engine versions here, including the latest V6 [ALPHA]. The new V6 model offers longer prompt lengths, more detailed control over colors and shading, and more.
Now, to switch to V6, hover your mouse over the V6 option and click on it. This action will change your current suffix to
Alternatively, if you want to use V6 for a specific task while keeping your default setting, add
--v 6 to the end of your Midjourney prompts.
This way, you can use V6 while still having the option to revert to the previous version.
Step 3: Add Text to Images in Midjourney Using Prompts
Now that you’ve enabled V6 in Midjourney, it’s time to write text directly into your images. This feature can enhance the storytelling aspect of your artwork which was cut to impossible months back.
To include text in your Midjourney creations, you’ll use specific prompts. The text you want in the image should be enclosed in quotation
"(Your Text Here)" marks.
Then, you can add details to shape the context and appearance of the image.
Here are some examples to illustrate how you can craft your prompts:
Simple Text Example
/imagineA girl is running in the garden holding a balloon, and on the balloon, “Hey” is written make sure the balloon is red in color, and the image is realistic, –ar 16:9 –v 6.0
/imagine“Happy Birthday!” written in colorful letters on a birthday cake, with candles lit, in a festive setting –ar 16:9 –v 6.0
Complex Scene with Text
/ImagineA snowy landscape with a child building a snowman, and on the snowman’s hat, the text “Winter Wonderland” is written, ensure the sky is clear blue –ar 16:9 –v 6.0
Specific Item with Text
- /imagine “Keep Smiling” written in elegant script on a white coffee mug, placed on a wooden table with a cozy background –ar 16:9 –v 6
