In this article, I show you what RAW mode is and how to use it.
What is RAW mode?
Raw mode enables you, with the help of the Midjourney bot, of course, to produce images that appear more natural and less refined. Creating a more natural photographic feel to the end result.
How Do You Use Raw Mode?
There are two ways to activate RAW mode in Midjourney;
- Manually use the "--style RAW" parameter in your prompt
- Switch to Midjourney V5.1 in the settings.
Using raw mode manually in your prompt will enable you to switch in and out of it easily.
Using the settings to switch to Midjourney v5.1 will switch RAW mode on for all images produced by default.
Both have their upsides. I personally prefer to use it in my prompt as and when I like.
Greater Control of Images
The real advantage of the Raw mode in Midjourney is that it allows you to give more detailed prompts that Midjourney takes and uses in a more natural way.
This means that you can get more predictable results.
This is brilliant, especially when you combine all the parameters, and knowledge of cinematic shots, cameras, art styles, mediums etc. The Midjourney world is your oyster.
