Midjourney No Text: Remove Words & Watermarks [2024]

Generating a Midjourney no text image is a common problem faced by users and can be a tricky one to solve.

You generated the perfect Midjourney image, but there’s just one problem.

The image has text and it’s not in any language you have ever seen before.

You’re not a Photoshop pro, so how do you fix this?

In this post, we are going to share some tips and methods to create the perfect Midjourney image that is free of text.

You can always add text back in later with an app like Canva.

Let’s dive in!

What Is The Midjourney Text Problem?

You might notice that some Midjourney images will have weird-looking text, watermarks, or strange symbols.

This happens because Midjourney is trained on the visual aspects of an image rather than concepts like text or writing.

Some of the images in this Midjourney training model will contain letters or logos.

Midjourney Watermark

You will notice blurry watermarks or symbols in the background of some of your Midjourney images.

These are due to some of the images used in Midjourney’s training dataset likely coming from a stock image source. Some of these services include Getty, iStock, and Shutterstock.

We’re not saying that Midjourney intentionally used these images, but the watermarks on the free versions of these photos will sometimes blend in your image generations.

How To Generate Midjourney No Text Images

First off, you can also try adding a Midjourney command to your prompt to prevent text or watermarks from appearing.

To do this, add the following command to the end of your Midjourney prompt:

--no text fonts letters watermark words typography slogans signature

You can also try adding “no image” or “image only” to your prompt.

Keep in mind, these methods aren’t guaranteed to work, but they can help reduce the probability of text appearing in your AI images.

Midjourney No Text Logo

If you want to create a logo or graphic for your brand, you need to avoid certain terms to ensure lettering and typography are consistent with your vision.

For example, it might be tempting to use the term “logo”. But often you will generate images with odd letters.

So avoid using individual terms like “logo”.

Instead, try more descriptive prompt terms like:

  • Image only logo icon
  • Vector style sticker
  • Brand emblem

One way to prevent this from happening is to avoid certain prompt terms.

These include ‘professional photography’, ‘stock photo’, and corporate or academic-related terms. 

If this method doesn’t work, you can also try to make your image more unique. Try adding more specific details and context to your prompt.

For example, instead of “manager presenting in corporate board room”, try “confident man in 40’s wearing a suit and tie standing in front of a chart on an easel, glass window corporate office”.

Can Midjourney generate text?
