This is the 4th post in a series looking at a sample of Midjourney style reference codes. This series looks at the 200-299 codes. To mix things up a bit, the combined set of images consists of “car” + “New York City” + “Cathedral”.

To use a specific style reference when generating an image, you can use the –sref {style reference} parameter. An additional parameter that can be used is the style weight (–sw) parameter with a value between 100 (the default when not specified) and 1000. The higher the value, the more weight is given to the style reference vs the text prompt.

This post covers the 100 Midjourney style reference codes in the series 100-199. To attempt to get a good sense of what a particular style code represents, I’ve generated four different pictures for each style. In this series those four are 1) a man and a woman, 2) a car, 3) a London street scene and 4) a castle. It’s interesting that some styles appear to be good for people takes, whereas others are better for cars or buildings.

Midjourney style references can be used with the parameter –sref (sref number). The styles have a lot of elements embedded in them – colors, painting/drawing style, mood, and lots of other stuff (this being my take on it). I’m not going to be doing this for all of the sref codes, as there are currently more than 4 billion, but wanted to explore what is available in a small subset – and have found some styles that I really like.

This is the second post in a series on exploring style reference codes in Midjourney and providing a quick visual reference for them.

I mixed the content up a bit from the last post (500-599), swapping out the castle for a Paris street scene, and the dancing couple for a portal to another world. I’m trying to provide a broad overview of the style across different subject matter.

Midjourney Style Reference Codes, a visual index for codes 500-599
This table examines the Midjourney style reference codes in the range 500-599.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary), but using the “–sref sref_code” in MidJourney will result in images with a similar look and feel. This can be combined with the style weight parameter (–sw) and a numeric value between 1 and 1000, where the higher the value the more “artistic” the image will be. The default style weight is 100.

For each style, I created a car, castle and couple to demonstrate how the style works with different subject matter types. The specific prompts used were “futuristic car”,”castle in wooded setting, garden maze in front of castle” and “man and woman dancing”. I subsequently added the Faces field to provide an additional “view” of each style. The Faces pictures were created with the prompt “man and woman”. The pictures are scaled down for server space. If you are interested in getting a full size copy of one, or in having me explore a style concept for you, give me a shout (hubcrate at gmail.com).
