AI has completely transformed the digital image-making space in 2023 with the rapid advancement of text-to-image generators. With the release of Midjourney 6, AI capabilities have been lifted to all new heights, as the technology is now able to address longstanding issues and set new benchmarks in the field. Version 6 is without a doubt its most ambitious update, capable of delivering ultra-photorealistic images from extended, specified text prompts.

The latest update has improved on five crucial areas, including its its ability to produce, accurate, high-resolution in-image text – an action that has previously plagued AI image and video generation – and the ability to create photorealistic images that, at first glance, could be photos.
