What is Midjourney?
For the uninitiated, Midjourney is a revolutionary AI art generator that converts text descriptions into images. It's like having a digital artist at your fingertips. Originally popularized on Discord, Midjourney uses the same advanced technology as DALL-E 2, allowing you to create highly detailed and accurate images from text prompts.

This integration not only boosts productivity by eliminating the need to switch between apps but also adds a dash of fun and creativity to your everyday Slack conversations. The best part? The first 5 image generations are absolutely free.
How to Use Midjourney in Slack
Getting started with the Midjourney Slack bot is incredibly simple. Here's how to add Midjourney to Slack:
- Step 1: Click the "Add to Slack" button on www.mjslackbot.com to add the MJ Slack Bot to your workspace. You will be redirected to Slack, where you can select the workspace you want to add the bot to. Click "Allow" to grant the bot access to your workspace. The bot only be able to access messages that call the bot with commands, e.g. "/imagine or /info".
- Step 2:Type /info in any public channel. If everything is set up correctly, you will receive a response like this from the bot, indicating that you're ready to start creating. Important: For improved security, the bot will only work in public channels, not private channels or direct messages.
- Step 3:To generate an image, type /imagine followed by a description of the image you want to create. For instance, /imagine a dog at the beach will prompt the bot to generate an image based on your description. Depending on the server load, image generation will take a moment, but no worries – the bot will let you know when your image is ready by tagging you in the thread of the image.
Here are some other examples of commands supported by the bot:
- /imagine - creates images from a text prompt. You can also add one or more image URLs to your prompt.
- /blend - blends up to 5 images into one novel image
- /describe - creates prompt ideas for an image URL.
- /info - displays information about the bot
- /help - displays a list of commands
For each prompt, 4 image variations will be generated. You can then select the image you like best using the buttons below the image and upscale it for better resolution. You can also create variations of the images you like most. The best part: You can do all this together with your team in real-time, right within Slack.
