How do I change the aspect ratio during the trip?

  1. Aspect Ratio Parameters: You can sprinkle some magic into your prompts by adding –aspect : or –ar : to the end. Voila! Your image will change to the exact aspect ratio you desire.
  2. Zoom out miracle: Do you already have an image, but would you like a different aspect ratio? No problem! Use the Zoom Out option and watch Midjourney fill in the gaps with more engaging content based on your original question.
  3. To scale and trim adventures: Change the aspect ratio of your image by playing with external tools. Scale up, crop and watch your creation evolve into the shape of your dreams.
  4. Seed Magic: Do you want a similar style, but with a twist? Use the same seed with a different aspect ratio and let Midjourney weave his artistic spells one more time.

Here are the steps to change the aspect ratio/dimensions of images generated in Midjourney:

  1. Include the parameter “–ar” or “–aspect” in your prompt.
  2. Enter the desired width:height ratio after “–ar” or “–aspect”. For example “–ar 16:9” or “–aspect 9:16”.
  3. The width always comes before the height, separated by a colon.
  4. Some examples of common aspect ratios:
    • 16:9 – Landscape widescreen
    • 4:3 – Standard full screen
    • 1:1 – Square, used for profile pictures
    • 9:16 – Vertical portrait
  5. Place the parameter “–ar” or “–aspect” before any other indications.
  6. The image Midjourney generates matches the aspect ratio you specified.

For example:

“A cute puppy playing in the park – at 16:9”

This will generate a landscape image of a puppy with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9.

You can experiment with different ratios, such as 9:16, 4:5, and so on, to get images with the dimensions you need. Specifying the aspect ratio gives you more control over image generation in Midjourney.

Each Midjourney model has its own maximum aspect ratios, so there’s always a perfect fit for your creative visions:
