In a recent announcement on Twitter, Midjourney revealed the launch of version 5.2 of its text-to-image AI model.

Building on the success of the previous version, V5.1, this latest update brings a range of exciting features and functionalities that have already sparked the creativity of AI art enthusiasts.

Users don't need to take any additional steps to access V5.2 as the model updates have been automatically implemented in their user settings. The highlight of the update is Midjourney's new Zoom Out function, similar to Adobe's Generative Fill tool.

Using the "/image" command, users can expand the original image, keeping its details while zooming out. The AI generates four visual iterations based on user data, allowing users to select their preferred image and zoom out for greater detail.

Once the image is selected, users will notice three buttons labeled "Zoom Out 2x," "Zoom Out 1.5x," and "Custom Zoom" below the upscaled version. While the first two buttons zoom out the original scene to two and one-and-a-half times its scale, respectively, the "Custom Zoom" option enables users to fine-tune the zoom ratio between 1.0 and 2.0 using a manual prompt edit.

Midjourney restricts the zoom ratio to maintain optimal results and provides an error message if the value exceeds the allowed range.

The most exciting aspect of this update is the virtually limitless zooming options it offers. Users can continuously apply the Zoom Out feature to the upscaled image, creating an ever-expanding visual experience.

V5.2 also introduces the "Make Square" tool. Landscape images can be vertically expanded, while portrait images can be adjusted horizontally. The resizing direction is indicated by arrows adjacent to the "Make Square" button.

Another notable addition is the "Variation Mode," allowing users to focus on the desired visual nuances and changes in their outputs. By using the "/settings" command, users can set the mode to "High Variation" for more distinct variations or "Low Variation" for greater visual consistency.

Contrary to a common misconception, longer prompts do not necessarily result in better or more detailed outputs. Midjourney addresses this by introducing the "/shorten" command, which allows users to input wordy prompts for analysis and receive alternative suggestions.

With the release of V5.2, Midjourney continues to push the boundaries of AI-generated art, providing users with powerful tools to unleash their creativity and explore new possibilities.
