Keywords

πŸ’‘Midjourney

Midjourney refers to a specific version of an AI image generation tool used for landscape design renderings. It is mentioned as 'mid-journey version 5.1' or 'V5' in the script, which indicates a software update or a particular release that the user should have to maximize rendering potential. The tool is used to create and manipulate images, particularly focusing on elements like trees in landscape designs.

πŸ’‘Landscape Design Renderings

Landscape design renderings are visual representations of landscape architecture, which are created to showcase how a landscape would look after it has been designed and before it is built. In the script, the focus is on enhancing these renderings with elements like trees, using AI-generated images to achieve a more realistic or artistic outcome.

πŸ’‘Cutout Trees

Cutout trees are images of trees that have been isolated from their original background, typically used to be placed into different scenes or designs. The script discusses creating these by using AI prompts and then enhancing their quality and resolution for use in landscape renderings.

πŸ’‘Upscale Stock Images

Upscale stock images refers to the process of increasing the resolution of a stock image, which is a pre-existing image that can be used in various designs. In the context of the video, the term is used when discussing how to improve the quality of AI-generated tree images to make them suitable for high-resolution renderings.

πŸ’‘Prompts

Prompts are the specific instructions or descriptions given to an AI to guide the generation of an image or design. The script mentions using prompts to create realistic or watercolor trees, indicating that the choice of words and descriptors in a prompt can significantly influence the output of the AI.
