This change has been made because, after months of human feedback, Midjourney has finally found a way to get rid of the six-fingered people. The process is not perfect, but it is getting there. In the meantime, the five-fingered people will be the only ones on the platform.

Images have a higher resolution and generally have better detail and stylistic range than version four offers. This makes images a more visually appealing medium for conveying information and emotions, which is why they are widely used in advertising, social media, and art.

  • Midjourney is looking to improve its text-to-image AI model by hiring experienced prompt engineers to create prompts that are more specific and thought-provoking. These engineers have extensive experience using AI algorithms to produce graphics and are adept at employing a variety of phrases to produce the best works of art. Midjourney believes that by hiring prompt engineers, it will be able to create better and more relevant outputs, improving the user experience and making its model even more cutting-edge.
  • Midjourney, Anthropic, and other AI startups are facing a staff shortage due to a lack of good-level researchers and developers. This has caused delays in the development of new models outside of text-to-image and is having a negative impact on the company’s ability and speed to develop new models.
