๐Ÿ’กMidjourney V6

Midjourney V6 refers to the sixth version of a software or tool that is likely used for image generation or manipulation. In the context of the video, it is the platform where users can input prompts to generate images with various styles. The video discusses new features and functionalities available in this version, such as the ability to apply a random style to an image using the 'sref random' command.

๐Ÿ’กStyle Reference (sref)

A Style Reference, denoted as 'sref' in the script, is a code associated with a particular style that can be applied to an image. The video explains how users can obtain a style reference code from their prompts and use it to apply a consistent style to their images. This feature is powerful as it allows for the replication and sharing of styles across different images.

๐Ÿ’กRandom Style

The term 'Random Style' is used to describe a feature that applies a random style to an image when the user includes 'sref random' in their prompt. This introduces an element of unpredictability and creativity, allowing users to explore different visual outcomes without specifying a particular style.


Discord is a communication platform mentioned in the video where users can interact and use commands to generate images with specific styles. The script suggests that Discord might be preferred for certain functions, such as obtaining style codes, over the Midjourney website.

๐Ÿ’กJob ID

A Job ID is a unique identifier for a particular task or operation. In the context of the video, it is used to refer to the unique identifier for an image generation task. Users can copy the Job ID and use it to retrieve the style code for their generated images.


Consistency in this context refers to the uniformity of style applied across a series of images. The video emphasizes the consistency that can be achieved by using the same style reference code across multiple image generations, resulting in a cohesive set of images.


NII seems to be an abbreviation or a specific feature within the Midjourney V6 tool that allows for image manipulation. The script mentions applying the same style code to NII to achieve similar results, indicating it as another tool or function within the platform.

๐Ÿ’กVary Region

Vary Region is a feature that allows users to change the style within a specific area of an image. The video demonstrates how one can use the lasso tool to select an area, such as the eyes, and apply a different style reference to that region, creating a blend of styles within one image.

๐Ÿ’กRemix Mode

Remix Mode is a setting within the Midjourney V6 tool that, when enabled, allows users to make more significant changes to their prompts and styles. It is a feature that provides additional creative control over the image generation process.

๐Ÿ’กStyle Version (SV)

Style Version, abbreviated as 'SV', is a parameter that can be used with an image URL to generate slightly different versions of a style. The video shows how entering 'SV' followed by a set of numbers in curly brackets can produce multiple variations of the same style, offering users more control over the final image.


In the context of the video, permutations refer to the different variations or combinations of styles that can be generated using the 'SV' parameter with a set of numbers. This feature allows users to explore multiple style options based on a single style reference.

๐Ÿ’กSL Tune

SL Tune appears to be a feature or command from a previous version of the Midjourney tool (version 5.2) that allowed users to create a style code. The video suggests that users can still use this command and then apply the resulting style code in version 6, indicating compatibility and continuity between different versions of the tool.


In Midjourney V6, you can add 'sref random' to your prompt to get a random style applied to your image.

The style reference code is provided next to your prompt, allowing you to copy and use it for consistency.

You can copy the style code from the job ID in Discord to apply the same style to other prompts.

The 'sref random' function is similar to the 'tune' function from version 5.

To use the style reference, ensure you have Midjourney version 6 selected in your settings.

The style reference code can be shared and used by others, allowing for collaboration and experimentation.

By using numbers with 'D-sref', you can generate images with specific style numbers, offering a wide range of styles to explore.

A new feature allows combining styles within an image using the 'vary region' tool and different style references.

You must enable 'remix mode' in settings to use the 'vary region' tool for style combination.

The 'D-sref' function does not support multiple codes or mixing with 'SV' or URLs.

Using a random number with 'D-' allows for experimentation with different style outcomes.

The 'D-repeat' function can be used to try multiple style references at once, offering a variety of styles.

If you find an eye-catching style, you can share it in the comments for others to try.

A resource of style codes is available in the description for further exploration and reference.

You can still use the 'SL tune' function to create a style code in version 5.2 and apply it in version 6.

Using an image URL with 'D-srf' and 'SV' allows for variations of a style to be explored.

The 'D-SV' function with curly brackets enables permutations of style variations for further control.
