TLDRIn this tutorial, Christian Heidorn from Tokenized AI demonstrates how to obtain a job ID for an image in Midjourney and how to use that job ID to retrieve and remaster an old image. Heidorn explains the utility of the job ID for revisiting and enhancing older images with newer versions of Midjourney's algorithms. He outlines two methods to acquire a job ID: one through Discord by using the standard envelope reaction to prompt the Midjourney bot to send job details privately, and the other through the Midjourney web app by locating the three-dot icon next to an image and copying the job ID. Heidorn also clarifies that only the owner of the job can view the seed and that the bot prevents unauthorized access to others' jobs, ensuring no misuse of the system. The video concludes with a demonstration of how to remaster an image using the latest Midjourney algorithm, resulting in unique variations. Heidorn encourages viewers to like, subscribe, and look forward to future content.

Q & A

  • What is the purpose of obtaining a Job ID in Midjourney?

    -The purpose of obtaining a Job ID in Midjourney is to retrieve and continue working on an old image that you created using a previous version of Midjourney's algorithm. It allows you to remaster the image using new experimental algorithms.

  • How can you get the Job ID of an image through Discord?

    -You can get the Job ID through Discord by right-clicking on the 'add reaction' button of the job, selecting the standard envelope, and asking the Midjourney bot to send you the details about the job in a direct message (DM). The bot will then provide the full prompt, the Job ID, and if you are the owner, the seed.

  • What is the alternative method to get the Job ID if you have created many images on the Midjourney Discord server?

    -The alternative method is to use the Midjourney web app. You can find the image in your main profile, click on the three-dot icon next to the image, and then select 'copy job ID' from the context menu to get the Job ID.

  • Why does the speaker mention that the Midjourney web app is buggy?

    -The speaker mentions that the Midjourney web app is buggy because it has issues categorizing or attaching images to different accounts. The app sometimes attaches images to the user's Discord server and sometimes to the actual account, which can be confusing.

  • What happens when you try to use a Job ID that is not associated with your account?

    -If you try to use a Job ID that is not associated with your account, the Midjourney bot on Discord will inform you that you are not the owner of the job and you cannot load it into your chat history to continue working on it.

  • What does remastered mean in the context of Midjourney?

    -In the context of Midjourney, remastered refers to the process of reworking an old image using a combination of experimental algorithms, such as test and creative, to produce new variations of the original image.

  • Why is the seed only shown to the owner of the original job?

    -The seed is only shown to the owner of the original job to prevent unauthorized replication of someone else's work. It ensures that users cannot steal or replicate images created by others without permission.

  • What are some of the actions you can perform on an old job once you have the Job ID?

    -Once you have the Job ID, you can upscale the image to the max, apply light up skill, redo beta, upscale redo, and remaster the image with newer versions of the Midjourney algorithm.

  • How does the Midjourney bot ensure that users cannot steal images from the community feed?

    -The Midjourney bot ensures that users cannot steal images by not providing the seed when you ask for job details unless you are the owner of the job. Additionally, it prevents users from loading someone else's job into their chat history for further work.

  • What is the significance of the envelope symbol in obtaining the Job ID through Discord?

    -The envelope symbol, when selected, sends a request to the Midjourney bot to send you the job details, including the Job ID, in a direct message. It is a standard symbol used for this specific purpose.

  • What does the speaker recommend doing after watching the video?

    -The speaker recommends giving the video a thumbs up if you found it valuable, and subscribing to the channel to get notified about new video releases.

πŸ–ΌοΈ Retrieving and Remastering Images with Job IDs in Mid-Journey

Christian Heidorn from Tokenized AI presents a tutorial on obtaining the job ID of an image created with Mid-Journey's algorithm and using it to remaster the image. He explains the utility of the job ID for revisiting old images and experimenting with new algorithms. The video outlines two methods to retrieve the job ID: one through Discord by using the 'add reaction' feature to prompt the Mid-Journey bot to send job details via Direct Message, and the other through the Mid-Journey web app by locating the job in one's profile and copying the job ID from a context menu. Heidorn also demonstrates how to use the job ID to remaster the image with different algorithm versions, resulting in unique variations. However, he notes that the web app can be buggy and that images may not always be correctly associated with the user's account. The tutorial concludes with a reminder that only the owner of the job can access the seed and remaster the image, ensuring no unauthorized use or duplication of others' work.

🚫 Limitations on Job ID Usage and Protecting User Ownership

The second paragraph of the video script emphasizes the limitations and ethical considerations when using job IDs in Mid-Journey. Heidorn explains that while one can view and copy the job ID of another user's image from the Community Feed, they cannot use it to load and continue working on that job in their own chat history since they are not the owner. This restriction prevents unauthorized use or 'stealing' of other users' work. Additionally, the Mid-Journey bot does not provide the seed for a job that is not owned by the inquirer, preventing complete replication of someone else's creation. The paragraph concludes with a note of appreciation for viewers who watched the full video and an encouragement to like and subscribe for future content.
