The Midjourney Bot does not understand grammar, sentence structure, or words like humans, and it will not reliably interpret commas, brackets, hyphens, capitalization, etc.

Parameters give you the ability to control aspect ratio, variability, and “weirdness” of the results. Utilizing parameters is essential when you’re trying to control the output. Here is a list of Midjourney parameters.

While experimenting with the words and parameters in your prompts can generate incredible results (and be a lot of fun), it can be a bit frustrating when some of the images come out exactly how you’re expecting and others are a complete departure from what you intended.
