Midjourney’s New Feature for Character Consistency

  • Type --cref URL after your prompt with a URL to an image of a character

  • You can use --cw to modify reference 'strength' from 100 to 0

  • At strength 100 (--cw 100) is default and uses the face, hair, and clothes

  • At strength 0 (--cw 0) it'll just focus on the face (good for changing outfits/hair etc)

What it's meant for

  • This tool is great for pictures of characters made by Midjourney. It's not for pictures of real people (it may make them look weird, just like other picture tools do).

  • Cref acts like other picture tools but pays more attention to the character's features.

  • This method isn't perfect; it can't copy small details like dimples, freckles, or logos on t-shirts exactly.

  • Cref can be used with both Niji and regular Midjourney models and can also work with --sref
