Midjourney may have just solved a big problem with AI image generators

AI image generators continue to make new advances almost by the day. Last week, it was the launch of Ideogram with its improved text rendering. Now it seems Midjourney may have just solved one of the biggest problems holding back text-to-image AI: consistency across images.

Specifically, Midjourney has added a tag that's intended to create more consistent characters. Since diffusion-based AI image generators create new images every time, even when using the same prompt, it can be very difficult to create two (or more) images in which a character looks like the same person. This has made it hard to use AI for storyboards or anything that requires that consistency, but the long-requested new feature tells the AI when to try to respect the appearance of the character in a reference image.
