Midjourney (MJ) and BlueWillow (BW) are the talks of the town these days in the world of AI. Both tools can be used to generate incredible AI-generated art. But do they require Discord to run? Which one is paid, and which is free? So many questions have been answered in this article.
Let’s find the answers to Midjourney Vs. BlueWillow
Midjourney Vs. BlueWillow
|Limited free credits, then subscription-based
|Produces high-resolution, nuanced images
|Produces good quality images, but MJ has a slight edge
|Invite bot to a server, use ‘/’ command to generate images
|Verify identity, then use similar ‘/’ command in “Rookie” channels
|Monthly: $10 to $60; Annual: $96 to $576
|None (Completely free)
|Art Display Location
|Images are displayed on the chosen server
|Images are displayed in specific “Rookie” channels
|Superior upscaling capabilities
|Standard upscaling capabilities
|Uses “/imagine” followed by the text prompt
|Uses “/imagine” followed by the text prompt
|Variety in Art Styles
|Offers a range of styles and variations
|Limited styles compared to MJ
|Quick image generation, especially for simpler prompts
|Might take slightly longer than MJ
|Community & Support
|Active community, regular updates, and support available
|Growing community, updates might be less frequent compared to MJ
|Customization & Advanced Tools
|Offers more advanced tools and customization options for subscribers
|Basic tools with limited customization options
Time to explore how the two are and if they have any semblance to each other in detail.
I. Do you need Discord?
The two AI tools are used on Discord. Like MJ, even BW uses command prompts on Discord to generate the art. In the case of Midjourney, you invite the bot to your preferred server, and in BlueWillow, you must first verify yourself by turning off your VPN. Check the image below for a better understanding.
You can get the tool from BlueWillow’s Official Website.
Talking of Midjourney, get the tool on the website and invite it to a server of your choice. Here is the invite to your Discord.
Once you get it, use ‘/,’ and it will ask you to enter the prompt.
The image gets generated within seconds. The prompt entered for the image above is: “Prince of Ottoman Empire.”
II. Are they Free or Paid?
Many ponder upon the payment options for the two; we are here to give you a clear answer – MJ allows a few credits, and once all are consumed, you must buy the subscription, whereas BW is entirely free.
Here is the subscription plan for Midjourney:
|Type of Pricing/ Plans
|Monthly Subscription Pricing
|Annual Subscription Pricing
($8 / month)
($24 / month)
($48 / month)
III. How is the Image Quality?
We found the quality of MJ-generated images to be better than BW. The images are more nuanced and pronounced than the other ones.
A. Via Midjourney B. Via BlueWillow
You have the option to change the image styles.
A. looks better like a polished portrait of Napolean Bonaparte than B.
IV. Where is the art implemented?
In the case of MJ, the art is displayed on the server you choose after you type the command “/imagine.” Meanwhile, in BW, you will see several channels called “Rookie.” Select one channel and write “/imagine” (similar to MJ), followed by the text you wish to see come alive.
Also, MJ produces better upscaling than BW.
Final Thought: Which one is better?
In our opinion, if you are in a money crunch, we recommend BW’s AI tool, whereas for better image quality, we recommend BW’s AI tool.
1. How similar are the two tools?
The two AI tools use the same user interface, and the upscale and variation buttons function similarly. So, using one after the other will not be difficult since their functionalities are similar.
2. Is Midjourney free now?
No, you must still pay for a plan to continue using MJ. After the free-trial credits are used, it will ask you to buy a plan to extend your use.
3. How does AI generate images?
Using machine learning algorithms, AI image generators produce fresh images depending on input parameters or variables. A sizable dataset of images must be used to train the AI image generator, and this dataset can contain everything from paintings and photos to 3D models and game elements.
4. Can AI generate fake human faces?
Yes, you may quickly and easily build realistic human faces with AI image generators. Simply specify your preferences—including gender, age, and other characteristics—and the pictures will create a face image based on your textual specifications.
