There are two fundamental changes in how we approach Style Tops that this edition signifies. First, we're shifting from a benchmark-style approach—where the same prompts were used for all styles—to using unique prompts crafted specifically for each style. This change allows for a more nuanced and interesting exploration of how each style behaves.

Secondly, after investing hundreds of hours and generating thousands of "by-product" images to curate the best selections for our Tops, I developed a sense of how particular parameters work with various style modifiers. Specifically, the two parameters—*--stylize* and *--chaos*—are key in my prompting strategy. Going forward, we'll include these parameters in the prompts to give you an idea of which combinations work best with specific styles and particular wording. 

Of course, this is subjective, and I encourage you to explore other prompt strategies and parameter combinations to gain your own insights. Consider Midlibrary Style Tops as your starting point!

In July, we launched our first personalized Midjourney tool—Personal Libraries. Accessible exclusively to members of our Patreon community, a Personal Library allows them to create an unlimited number of Style Collections and save styles from the Midlibrary catalog into thematic compilations. These collections can then be bookmarked for quick access to their favorite styles or even saved as PDFs for printing. In just under two months, our patrons have created almost 600 such collections! We see this as a valuable opportunity to identify which styles are most popular among Midjourney enthusiasts.

Today, we are excited to present the Top 15 Most Collected Styles—and what you can do with them!
