Midjourney can now let users generate different images with consistent characters


Recommended Posts


Images generated on Midjourney. The image on the left is the original master, and those on the right are the new variants. Early test outputs do not yet look perfect (hands!) but provide a promising preview of its capabilities.


Midjourney, the popular AI image generating service has recently unveiled a groundbreaking feature that allows users to generate consistent characters across different images.




This innovative feature, known as “–cref” (short for “character reference”), aims to match character features, body type, and clothing based on a URL provided by the user. This development is particularly valuable for narrative continuity in visual mediums like films, novels, or comic books where consistent characters are essential.


The introduction of the “–cref” tag has overcome a major hurdle for AI image generators. Until now, the inconsistency of responses has been a significant challenge for generative AI applications. With this new feature, Midjourney has taken a significant leap from being a cool toy or ideation source into more of a professional tool.


As the feature progresses and is refined, it could revolutionize the way creators maintain the same characters across various scenes and settings, significantly enhancing narrative continuity. This development marks a significant milestone in the journey of AI-generated imagery.



With this advancement, one can’t help but wonder: How will this new feature shape the future of AI-generated imagery? What impact will it have on the creative process of artists and storytellers? We would love to hear your thoughts on this development.
