Midjourney V6 Essential- Transform Style with “Remix” 🎨

Updated: Feb 15


Remixing in Midjourney V6 has improved in comparison to V5. It allows you to reimagine an image while preserving the overall structure and arrangement of the original.


This feature is amazing if you wish to change the subject or medium of your image. Previously, I introduced the “4W1H” Technique and “Text Generating Pro Tips” in structuring your prompt


Today, I will share some tricks to maximize the potential of REMIX!

Today’s content will be broken down into three parts:

  • Part One: What is Remix Mode

  • Part Two: How to use Remix

  • Part Three: Creative Usage- Creating Hidden Face in An Image


 

Part One: What is Remix Mode

Remix Mode allows you to modify prompts, parameters, model versions, and aspect ratios to create variations of an original image. It takes the main elements of your initial image and uses them in a new task.

It is helpful for:

  • Changing the setting or lighting of an image

  • Evolving a subject

  • Creating more complex compositions.

  • Experimenting with different aspects of the original image to achieve the desired result.

Part Two: How to use Remix

Step 1: Activate “Remix Mode

”Activate Remix mode with the /prefer remix command or by using the /settings command and toggling the 🎛️ Remix Mode button.


Turn on "Remix Mode" for Midjourney

Remix changes the behavior of the variation buttons (V1, V2, V3, V4) under image grids. When Remix is enabled, it allows you to edit your prompt during each variation.


Step 2: Generate an image

Generate an image with /imagine


A prompt
For Example: We want to transform a photograph into an illustration.Let’s see what we will need to do next

Step 3: Upscale a preferred image

Remix changes the behavior of the variation buttons (V1, V2, V3, V4) under image grids.

Step 4: Remix Prompt: (Vary Subtle)

When Remix is enabled, it allows you to edit your prompt during each variation.

Choose “Vary Subtle” to access a pop-up that allows you to rewrite your prompt.


Step 5: Rewrite Your Prompt

Input the changes you want to make

For instance, you can transform a photograph into an illustration. As an example, we transformed a photo of a man into a 3D rendering of a robot.

Custom Prompt: 3D render of a chrome robot with long beard. Indoors with soft, diffused lighting --v6 --style raw

We have transformed a photograph into an illustration.

Breakdown

This example starts with a simple portrait photo of an older man and then remixes it into a completely different style and subject — a robot with long bears!


Original Prompt:

35mm film medium shot of a a 40-year-old Japanese man with a beard wearing a suit. Indoors with soft, diffused lighting --v6 --style raw

✨ Remix Prompt: (Vary Subtle):

3D render of a chrome robot with long beard. Indoors with soft, diffused lighting --v6 --style raw

The remixing allows you to take the basics like the face, beard, pose, etc. and reimagine them with a new creative spin.


Some key details that change in the remix:

  • Photo to 3D render

  • Business suit to robotic suit

  • Longer grey beard

  • Dramatic lighting instead of soft

You can transform an image in so many ways while still harnessing the core aspects.


Here is another example of a woman

Original Prompt:

Photo of a smiling young woman standing on a beach at sunset. She has long blonde hair and is wearing a red sundress. Warm golden hour lighting.

✨ Remix Prompt: (Vary subtle):

Remixed into A cartoon avatar pixar style girl wearing a red dress, soft lighting

Remixed into A cartoon avatar pixar style girl wearing a red dress, soft lighting


In this example, the original beach sunset photo is transformed into a completely different style and scene through remixing. Some key changes include:

  • Photo to cartoon avatar

  • Warm lighting to soft lighting


The subject stays the same but the style interpretation changed.

 

Part Three: Creative Usage- Creating Hidden Face in An Image


A village with Mona Lisa hidden face


Step 1: Create the Base Image

Use Midjourney to create a portrait and add the “ --stop 20” parameter to make it blurry.


You will get a blurry image like this




Step 2: Upscale the Image

Then, upscale the image and hit “Vary (subtle)” to prompt the desired scene.


Step 3: Remix with Prompt

Remember to take away the --stop parameter.

This should result in a finished masterpiece with small and sweeping details.

Here you go!

Final Thoughts

As you can see, the remixing feature provides an efficient way to explore variations of an image while locking down the core composition and subject matter. This frees you up to get creative with the details!


Tips for Remixing Successfully

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of image remixing in Midjourney:

  • Keep prompts clear and focused — highlight the key constant elements you want to retain.

  • Start with minor stylistic changes before making dramatic shifts.

  • Remixed elements should relate logically to the original image.

  • Try remixing the same image in different ways.

Have fun and let your creativity run wild!
