After a while, Midjourney launched its latest model (V5). Users immediately jumped in and tried it out, even though it took five months to complete the new model has made huge changes.
Let’s see what is different in this model.
What did they add to the V5 model?
To turn this model on, you should type either “–v 5” after your prompt or select “V5” after writing /settings.
- Broader stylistic range and increased prompt responsiveness.
- Better and higher image quality (double resolution increase), the dynamic range was improved.
- Image details were improved, less unwanted text.
- Supports “–tile”, for seamless tiling.
- Support “–ar”, greater aspect ratios 2:1.
- Support “–iw”, text prompts vs image prompts (weighing).
According to the community, the Midjourney V5 model can generate much more realistic images than anything before. They have increased the number of moderators, improved their moderation tool, and are trying to enforce the community standards with increased strictness. To avoid bad mannerisms and unnecessary drama.
Style & Prompting for V5
This model, according to the developers, is less opinionated than v3 and v4 models and is programed to provide a wide diversity of outputs, and is way more responsive to user prompts.
In exchange, it will be harder to use, and short prompts may not perform at all. They suggest trying lengthier, more detailed, more explicit text about your request (what you want). This will deliver better results for the user.
They encourage you to be interactive with the community to discover better ways and to figure out the best ways to use V5.
NOTE: According to the developers, this is an alpha test, and things will eventually change. They want you not to rely on this model to be available in the future. They claim that it will be significantly modified as they slowly take the V5 model to full release.
Fixed Hands and Fingers
After five months of hard work, the developer’s team has managed to fix the hands and fingers in the Midjourney V5 model. This has been an issue for a considerable amount of users for and especially the last couple of months, as they could not figure out a way to generate better-looking hands and fingers.
There have been plenty of complaints and reports that this issue required attention. Seems like devs are paying attention to their community and are trying to deliver to the best of their abilities. One can’t stop but wonder, what will the next version bring. Will they manage to advance the models further?
According to developers – “Midjourney V5 is just their second model trained on their AI supercluster, and they have been working for 5 months. It uses significantly different neural architectures and new aesthetic techniques. V5 isn’t the final version, but they hope that the community feels the progression of something deep and unfathomable in the power of collective human imagination”.
Here are some examples from Midjourney V5 model:
Prompt: “woman hand –v 5”
Prompt: “woman hand with beautiful ring –v 5”

Overall, users seem to have been fascinated with the Midjourney V5 model until now, especially since the fix of fingers and hands used to be a huge issue for most. But, they still could not improve the issue with the numbers and the text, which seems to be an alienated language. Nevertheless, developers are constantly taking into consideration the communities feedback and acting accordingly; this has shown seriousness on their part and will encourage the community to support them in their further advancements.
