'Midjourney V5' not only enables super high-quality image generation, but also reports that it has solved the problem of 'hands' being unable to be accurately depicted, which was a problem of image generation AI. increase.

Many images generated using 'Midjourney V5' have already been published on the Internet.
Below is the `` image of two portraits taken from different angles side by side '' generated by `` Midjourney V5 ''. I can handle the complex task of 'depicting the same person's face from another angle' without any problems.
Image generation AI such as 'Midjourney' and 'Stable Diffusion' has a problem that 'it is difficult to accurately depict' hands '. However, in the image below generated by 'Midjourney V5', the hand is accurately depicted.
Just a heads-up - Midjourney's AI can now do hands correctly. Be extra critical of any political imagery (especially photography) you see online that is trying to incite a reaction.pic.twitter.com/ebEagrQAQq—Del Walker (@TheCartelDel) March 16, 2023
Live-action images generated by 'Midjourney V5'. The human face and hands, and the blurring of the background are very natural.

As mentioned above, 'Midjourney V5' can generate very beautiful images, but there are also weaknesses.
