Midjourney’s Image-To-Text Feature Flips How AI Images Work

03:59 PM April 11, 2023

The text-to-image AI generator MIdjourney launched a new feature that revolutionizes how it works: image-to-text! You may upload images to Midjourney so that it can provide descriptions of those pictures. As a result, the platform opens more real-world utilities to artificial intelligence.

For example, it can help you quickly add descriptions to your product pages so that you can immediately launch them. Moreover, it can help people who cannot read or see clearly understand digital images. Image-to-text could also help people determine better prompts for AI text and text-to-image generators.

I will discuss how Midjourney’s new Image-to-text feature. Also, I will explain the potential applications of this technology for marketers, SEO experts, and others. Later, I will explain how to use Midjourney so that you can start testing the new function.

I assume you have a Midjourney account, so I will explain how to use the new Image-to-text feature. Later, I will discuss how you can start using this AI image generator.

  1. Open the Midjourney interface.
  2. Type the command “/describe,” and a text box will ask you to “Please attach a file.”
  3. Click that or drag and drop your picture on the larger box above.
  4. Then, click the Enter button.
  5. In response, Midjourney will show you four descriptions based on that image.

To illustrate how it works, look at the image below. Petapixel used this photo to test the Image-to-text feature:

You can use Midjourney to see how AI “sees” images. Then, use that information to produce the same type of image. Eventually, you and prompt engineers can make AI tools create exactly what you want with minimal trial and error.
