Prompter

 
(Version 2.4 is now available. Download link below)

Prompter is my gift to the MidJourney AI creative community, and with thousands of users in just the first week and a buzz on social media, I think we are onto something. This project is completely free (donations welcome) and making prompt writing simple and fast… but first we should talk about MidJourney.

What is MidJourney?

MidJourney is a powerful artificial intelligence (AI) powered tool for turning text into imagery. The user simply enters a “prompt” and the AI attempts to understand the language, subjects, description of light, color, or even famous artist’s styles, then outputs an original image that has never existed before. Among other similar systems (such as Dall-E 2, Craiyon, NightCafe, ArtBreeder, Disco Diffusion) what makes MidJourney stand out for me is its amazing amount of flexibility, painterly and surreal styles, amazing color and light, and the fact that it is so community driven. You can learn specific text to make amazing portraits, browse tons of keywords, study camera angles to help your perspective and so much more.

The project is now in open beta, so if you have a Discord account, click HERE to join the fun! To summarize, if you have never heard or seen text-to-image AI, it will blow your mind. No lie… (New to MidJourney? Check out my helpful notes!)

What is Prompter?

After weeks of image research, studying prompt design, and collecting tons of descriptive terminology – I have put together an organized and automated spreadsheet (via Google Drive) to assist in prompt creation. My goal was to make a tool that is both visually straightforward for new users, but also complex and comprehensive enough for the advanced crowd.

The Prompter interface has it all, from image URL input, optional custom weights on nearly every item, a simple to understand descriptions and checkboxes for code such as STYLIZE and QUALITY (even the new old algorithm versions), seed control, and drop-down menus with a large database of descriptors to choose from. Select from many popular aspect ratios, from your standard mobile phone screen to an IMAX, and even photographic print sizes. Choose camera lenses, lighting, color, or even a huge list of art movements and famous artists. Don’t have what you want? Select CUSTOM and write in your own artist, or add your own terms to the MyData sheet (your very own private database). You can even click the SAVE button to save all of your prompts with date and time, add notes, or click CLEAR to reset the entire form and start over (buttons run an external script, so you just need to allow that one time and they will work perfectly).

What is new?

Prompter (now on 2.4) contains a LOT of changes (view changelog), but the user interface looks and feels exactly the same. The prompt organization itself was completely reformatted after further testing. I fixed the bug of having two –no commands, added custom weights to everything, and even coded an option to select multiple items from one drop-down menu. The new Prompter has a HUGE list of descriptors. I combined my extensive list of terms with some new ones, thanks to the amazing organization of Will Wulfken and his AI testing on GitHub, and also a ton of AI trained artists from the Artist Visual Style Encyclopedia by Sincarnate.

The most exciting part – Prompter is now cloud based! My newest idea was to code Prompter to automatically update so you don’t have to download new versions (unless I really make big changes). Now if I add to or change my database, yours will automatically sync! Having issues or no internet? Just use LocalData on the right side. My hope is that we can collectively add to this list of terms, so please contact me if you think anything awesome is missing!

A note from the creator: I see AI like MidJourney to be all about the collective creative hivemind, and so tools like this should be public as well. That said, I included a donation button, so if you appreciate my work, all donations will help me pay the monthly MidJourney fees and stay in this wonderful community. Thank you for all the support!

(an extensive database of terms, cloud based, so it is always being updated)
(use cloud based data, or the original local data with the click of a button)
(A simple external script to make the SAVE and CLEAR buttons work, also muti-select. You will need to accept the script one time, then it will always work without issue. Feel free to look at the code: it’s super basic)
(use MyData to compile a list of your own private terms to use in Prompter)
(click the SAVE button to keep records of all your prompts, write notes about what worked or didn’t)

Since this is an early version, please contact me if you run into any bugs or have new ideas. I also have some more plans to re-organize and add things in upcoming versions (and modify if MidJourney has new updates as well).

Below are some examples of MidJourney AI’s text-to-image from my prompts.

Privacy Policy

I (Shane McGeehan) do not collect or sell any personal user information when you use Prompter. Prompter is a spreadsheet you can copy to your personal Google Drive, and is then completely private to you.

The additional Google Apps Script (currently awaiting verification from Google) simply adds greater functionality to the spreadsheet, but is not needed. Accepting the script adds support for multi-select drop-down menus, as well as the SAVE and CLEAR buttons, but no user data is ever sent externally. My website (www.thedreamingstate.com) uses Google Analytics to track anonymous page visits, and I just use it so I can see the scope of my audience and daily visits.

The only case in which I might get access to personal information (such as your name, email, Facebook, Discord, or MidJourny) is by you contacting me with support questions or ideas or offering donations. I will never share or use this information beyond one-on-one communication, and possibly a kind thank you email for donations. If you have any questions or concerns, please CONTACT me at any time.

Terms Of Service

I (Shane McGeehan) am the creator of Prompter, and I am not in any way affiliated with MidJourney, Discord, or any other related entity. I am a private developer who just enjoys creating tools for better automation. Really, I am just a weird artist guy who gets bored and makes awesome spreadsheets.

I created Prompter to help the community with prompt formation in MidJourney. Though I can not guarantee that Prompter will make your images exactly how you envision them, I think you will find it to be a great resource in helping you with terminology and the understanding of how prompts work. I also can’t guarantee that Prompter will always work perfectly, as MidJourney tends to update often, but I plan to keep up to date as quickly as possible.

Prompter is free to copy and modify for personal use. By copying Prompter, you agree not to use the name, design, or organization of data for your own personal gain. Please CONTACT me if you have any questions.
