With its latest version (V6), Midjourney gets more improvements to image quality and capabilities.

Here we will see the comparison between Midjourney and other best AI image generation tools and models like Dall-E 3, Stable diffusion XL, Imagine with meta, and more.

What is Midjourney

Midjouney is an AI image-generation tool developed by a team of researchers and engineers. Its primary objective is to create realistic and high-quality images with the help of AI. Midjouney gets many iterations and here we have the V6. You can generate the most realistic images with the help of text prompts and here you can see the comparison.

Midjourney V6 vs V5.2

Let’s start with its previous version V5.2. Here is the difference between V5.2 and V6.

  • v5.2 generates images at 512×512 pixels, whereas v6 generates image with 1024×1024 pixels. Which makes v6 more powerful with sharper details and a more polished look.
  • v5.2 may have generated artifacts or elements might not be perfectly aligned but v6 offers a more improved version with more realistic scenes.
  • In v5.2 lighting can sometimes appear to lack depth or flat but in the latest version, it introduces new lighting effects and techniques and more cinematic looks.
  • Compared to the previous version, the latest version has faster processing times.

Here are some examples of Midjouney v5.2 vs v6 comparison.
