SREF (Model Reference) is likely one of the latest options launched by Midjourney which basically behaves like a method coaching LoRA. It means that you can constantly generate photographs in a specific type aesthetic just by studying from a provided picture.
Its fairly cool as a result of you will get constant outcomes with only one picture.
Tips on how to use Model References
- Begin along with your immediate and use the argument
--srefadopted by a URL of a picture (a number of).
- Midjourney will analyse the picture(s) offered and create your picture utilizing the type and aesthetics of that picture.
- It really works with each V6 and Niji V6 fashions. Doesn’t work with earlier fashions.
- You need to use a number of photographs like this

One other approach to have a look at that is that Midjourney is color grading your picture that it generates utilizing the color scheme of the reference picture offered.
Let’s discover this additional with a reference picture from Mad Max: Fury Highway
Let’s create a picture utilizing this immediate:
a previous 1965 Submit-Apocalyptic mustang in a dystopian scene, mustang is closely modified with armour and weapons to guard it is driver, shot from behind the automotive overlooking a desert panorama and rocky mountains, digital camera is positioned at a really low angle --ar 239:100 --sref https://s.mj.run/C76XE6JqaTA --stylize 200 --v 6
You see the ensuing picture has the identical color grading ie. aesthetics and magnificence because the supply picture. But we didn’t reference something that pertains to the color scheme within the immediate. Now to show that we will run the identical immediate with out the
a previous 1965 Submit-Apocalyptic mustang in a dystopian scene, mustang is closely modified with armour and weapons to guard it is driver, shot from behind the automotive overlooking a desert panorama and rocky mountains, digital camera is positioned at a really low angle --ar 239:100 --stylize 200 --v
You’ll be able to see these photographs have completely different aesthetics and its primarily based on Midjourney’s personal interpretation of what it ought to appear to be. So utilizing the –sref type reference has immense profit to the outcomes.
Let’s attempt from one other film – Tenet
right here is the end result with immediate:
a african american man in a effectively dressed go well with standing in a secret analysis facility --ar 239:100 --sref https://film-grab.com/wp-content/uploads/photo-gallery/Tenet_027.jpg?bwg=1614340151 --sw 300 --stylize 200 --v 6
I imply that is unimaginable what Midjourney does. SREF type reference let’s you replicate the aesthetics of a reference picture within the picture you might be creating with the immediate. It just about replicates color grading of the reference picture, so its a cool method to create constant photographs utilizing Midjourney in a specific type so you possibly can have consistency of their look and aesthetics.
