Better late than never: Midjourney version 5 is out at last! I take it for a spin and run a comparison between V5 and the previous versions of Midjourney.
Great post! These kinds of side-by-side comparisons are just what I wanted to see. I don't think anything demonstrates Midjourney's progress quite like that hamster photo. Mutant mogwai to adorable critter in just 1 year!
Tried v5 today with some old prompts. The results (esp. with prompts that had meh outcomes before) are mind blowing. However, I am not a huge fan of the fact that images turn out more photorealistic.
