MidJourney v6 Upscale Subtle Edition

What is MidJourney Upscale?

Midjourney is an AI-powered platform that generates stunning visual art. One of its exciting features is the Upscale tool, which allows you to increase the resolution of your images while maintaining their artistic style. In this guide, we’ll focus on the Subtle Upscale option.

How Does Subtle Upscale Work?

The Subtle Upscale option doubles the size of your image while preserving the original details. It’s perfect for enhancing your artwork without drastically altering its appearance.

Here’s how to use it:

  1. Generate an Image: Start by creating an image using the /imagine command in Midjourney.
  2. Select Your Image: Use the U1, U2, U3, or U4 buttons to isolate your chosen image from the grid of four. This step ensures that you’re working with the specific part of the image you want to upscale.
  3. Upscale (Subtle): Click on the Upscale (Subtle) button. The AI will process your image, doubling its resolution to 2048 x 2048 pixels. The result will maintain the original style while providing more detail.

Example: Before and After Subtle Upscale

Let’s take a look at a comparison:

  • Original Image (1024 x 1024 pixels): !Original Image
  • After Subtle Upscale (2048 x 2048 pixels): !Subtle Upscale

As you can see, the Subtle Upscale maintains the essence of the original image while enhancing its clarity.

Tips and Tricks:


Try both the Subtle and Creative upscale options to see which one best suits your style.

Legacy Upscalers:

If you’re working with older MidJourney models, you can still use legacy upscalers to enhance your images.

Refresh Upscale Jobs:

For images generated before the new upscalers were released, refresh them with the /show command to access compatible upscale buttons.
