What is MitchJourn-E?

MitchJourn-E aims to enable intuitive, fast, and exciting ways to generate new images, using the power of InvokeAI and Stable Diffusion on Windows desktop.

The name is a play on words, referencing the popular image generation services “MidJourney” and “Dall-E”. This app provides an easy-to-use desktop interface for the popular Stable Diffusion fork called “InvokeAI“. MitchJourn-E is an open-source Windows desktop application that allows you to type in a description of an image and the app will create that image using the Stable Diffusion model.

In many ways, MitchJourn-E is just like other popular interfaces for creating images using Stable Diffusion. There are many features that set MitchJourn-E apart though, including the screen-shot inspiration feature, fast continuous prompting and weighted prompt “bubbles” of text.

MitchJourn-E Features

Text-to-Image: Enter text prompts and generate an image.

Text to Image

Image-to-Image: Reference an existing image to create images with similar composition, style, and size

MitchJourn-E image-to-image feature
Image to Image

Prompt from clipboard: Use the Windows screen snip tool or copy any image to the clipboard to generate an image based on whatever you copied

Prompt: Action hero movie poster destiny 2 epic character holding a sword

Prompt bubbles: Generate images by adjusting the weighting of distinct word bubbles to include more or less of a specific word or sentence.

Prompt bubbles show the weight of their bubble in the top right corner. In the raw data, the weights look like 1 for default, plus or minus 0.1 for each weighting.
Prompt: (Cute painting of a puppy)1 (cheerful whimsical forest)0.9 (highly detailed intricate)1 (storybook style)1.3 (digital art, 2.5D style)1

Create variations: Reference a previously generated or local image and create similar but different variations of it

Negative prompting: enter prompts that are banned from generation, usually generating inverse results. Combine with regular and image prompting to fine-tune results

Prompt blending: define two separate weighted prompts to generate an image of intersecting concepts

Prompt Helper: a customizable menu to quickly add commonly used phrases, artist names and styles to speed up workflow

Continuous prompting: Images can be generated one after another, while changing the prompt and the parameters of the prompt to fine-tune the image

Sequential prompting: Images can be generated based on the previous image, allowing prior results shape future results

Up-scaling: generate images quickly at low resolution, then upscale them after, for an overall fast way to generate full sized images

High Resolution generation: Generate images at resolutions higher than usually possible, using a 2-phase approach of generating a smaller image, up-scaling it, then using the up-scaled image as a reference, generate the high-resolution image

Aspect ratio presets: define presets (or use the defaults) to create images in common ratios like 16:9, 2:3, 1:1

Creativity slider: quickly modify multiple parameters with one slider movement that will result in more and less “creative” results, useful for moving between photo-realism and fantasy

Prompt noise: add Perlin noise to the prompt to subtly (or drastically) modify the starting point of the image generation

Latent limiter: limit the amount of data available to the generation, which can generate more photo-realistic/true to source images

Seamless tiling: generate images that can seamlessly tile together, great for clothing patterns and game assets

Generate progress images: save every step the generation makes before creating the end result (for you noise lovers!)

Output sorting (experimental feature): automatically sort generated images into folders based on the prompt used

Prompt folder (experimental feature): reference a folder of images and generate new images referencing each image in that folder sequentially. Good for creating videos

Out-painting (experimental feature): generate additional resolution to existing images, based on the prompt

Metadata Extractor (experimental feature): reference an image and view all the associated metadata. Typically, images generated with Stable Diffusion have the prompt and other parameter info saved within the metadata

Where credit is due

Thanks to Emad Mostaque and his team for creating the Stable Diffusion platform and model which this application uses as it’s backbone. Additionally, thanks to Lincoln Stein and contributors for creating the Stable Diffusion fork which this application leans on for the majority of its image processing features.

This application is a user interface that leverages the hard work of many creators to create beautiful art. In keeping with its predecessors, this project is open source and can be remixed and added to. Feel free to fork and collaborate using GitHub.


MitchJourn-E is a Windows desktop app that uses InvokeAI and Stable Diffusion to generate new images based on user-provided descriptions. It has a user-friendly interface, a screen-shot inspiration feature, fast continuous prompting and the ability to adjust the weighting of distinct word “bubbles” to include more or less of a specific word or sentence. It’s open-source and is a variation of popular image generation services like MidJourney and Dall-E.
