Today, we've introduced a fresh addition to the Midlibrary Style Catalog—General Modifiers, or GenMods for short.

In a nutshell, a GenMod is a keyword or combination of words that, when appended to your prompt, enables you to achieve a particular effect on the output image—without directly referencing an existing artistic technique, genre, or artist's name.

What are General Modifiers?

General Modifiers are a wide array of tokens (e.g.: words and expressions) that can consistently change the results of a wide variety of prompts.

This category includes colors and color schemes, weather patterns and time of day, lighting conditions and textures or materials, compositional rules, as well as atmosphere and mood, etc.

Using General Modifiers in your prompts

GenMods are very straightforward: you can simply append them to the end of your prompt...

...or, in some scenarios, weave them into the prompt's beginning or middle sections.

In certain GenMods, the latter halves of the prompts can be interchangeable. For example, both Joyful atmosphere and Joyful mood can yield similar outcomes in a prompt.

However, in other cases, changing the wording might bring different results. For instance, within the same prompt, Monochromatic tones will generate a black-and-white image, while Monochromatic colors will produce a colored picture with subdued hues.

So, be sure to experiment with the placement and formulation of GenMods within your specific prompts for best results!

Mixing GenMods

In addition to using individual GenMods, you can also combine various modifiers from different categories to create unique effects (or even compose complete prompts with only GenMods).

Instead Of An Outro

So here it is—a short intro into General Modifiers. Don’t forget to check the new Midlibrary section︎↗︎, and have fun playing around with GenMods!
