25 Free Midjourney Wallpaper Prompts

Gone are the days of looking for wallpapers on random sites; welcome the era of AI-powered imagination, where text descriptions breathe life into captivating wallpapers.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has rapidly evolved, revolutionizing various industries with its transformative capabilities. Particularly, Midjourney, one of the most popular generative AI models, has a higher user base compared to OpenAI’s DALL.E 2 and Adobe’s Firefly.

In this article, I explained how I created 12 types of wallpaper using the optimal Midjourney parameters and aspect ratios. Also, I have included the exact Midjourney wallpaper prompts that I used in the process.

Remember, these prompts were tested in the latest Midjourney version, 5.2. Hence, these prompts can generate slightly different aesthetics and styles in the other version of Midjourney.

If you want to modify the prompts that I have given here, replace the square bracket with your own input. Otherwise, use the prompt as it is after removing the square brackets.

Midjourney Wallpaper Aspect Ratios and Parameters

Midjourney has a variety of aspect ratios and parameters that perform various tasks. 

Many users of Midjourney felt overwhelmed by these options. But when it comes to wallpapers, you only need to be familiar with a few aspect ratios and parameters.

Let’s look at those.

To create wallpapers for desktops, you can use aspect ratios of 16:9, 21:9, or 3:2 according to your device’s screen resolution.

To create wallpapers for your iPhones or Android mobile devices, you must use the aspect ratios of 9:16 or 2:3.

To talk about Midjourney parameters for wallpapers, there are a few you need to take note of:

  1. –tile: You can use the “tile” parameter to get seamless, repeatable patterns.
  2. –stop <value>: The “stop” parameter can be used when you want a certain kind of texture look. The “stop” parameter actually stops the job partway.
  3. –s <value> or –stylize <value>: The “stylize” parameter brings an artistic feel and creativity to your outcome. But, in order to align with your prompt, you need to use the minimum values of 200-500. Otherwise, the outcome might deviate from your prompt.
  4. –no <text>: No parameter of Midjourney allows you to exclude the unwanted watermarks and the color or objects in the generated images.
  5. –style raw: It reduces the influence of the default Midjourney aesthetic and adds more photographic quality to images.

As a general tip, feel free to hit the “reroll” option or variation buttons v1, v2, v3, or v4 to try different results for a single prompt.

Types of Wallpapers You Can Create in Midjourney

Though the possibilities of creating various types of wallpaper in Midjourney seem boundless, I have tried and tested the most commonly used wallpaper categories. Here’s the list:

  1. Color Gradient
  2. Sceneries
  3. Abstract Wallpapers
  4. Game Assets
  5. Minimalistic
  6. Lofi Wallpapers
  7. Background for Children 
  8. Floral and Botanical
  9. Vintage and Retro
  10. Space and Galaxy
  11. 3D and Illusion
  12. Layered paper art

Let me walk through them one by one.

1. Color Gradient Wallpapers

Color gradient wallpapers have been quite popular in recent years and continue to be a preference for many users. Color gradient wallpapers look soothing and appealing at the same time.

Due to its minimalistic aesthetic and calming and relaxing properties, this is the majority of people’s go-to choice. It also compliments the overall feel and look of app icons.

Though you can find many color gradient wallpapers on stock websites, Midjourney allows you to create your own color gradient wallpapers. On top of this, it gives you the feeling of cultivating your own food.

Prompt 1: wallpaper of fluid abstract [multi-colors], smooth gradient, [soothing colors, mind relaxing colors], 8k resolution –ar 16:9

Midjourney gradient wallpaper

You can use the above prompt as it is to get multiple multi-color gradient wallpapers. In the case of a specific color or a couple of colors, you need to replace the values in the square bracket.

If you prefer more texture, you must try the below prompt, as it gives both fine texture and smooth gradients of colors. 

Prompt 2: digital background of color gradients, 3d effect, soft light, low contrast, minimalistic, [foil holographic] –ar 3:2 –stop 75

Midjourney abstract wallpaper

In the above prompt, you can replace the “foil holographic” with other material tokens, such as holographic glitters, rainbow or prism foils, and things like these.

Overall, cool results. Isn’t it?

2. Sceneries Wallpaer

Sceneries are the universal wallpapers on the gadgets of both millennials and Gen Z. Wallpapers featuring beautiful landscapes, scenic views, and nature’s wonders like mountains, beaches, forests, and sunsets are perennial favorites.

Let’s take a look at how Midjourney performs in this category.

Prompt 3: wallpaper of [mount fuji], [haze], hyperrealistic photograph, shot on Sony A7 IV camera, high quality, 4k –ar 3:2

Midjourney scenic wallpaper

I must say that I am flabbergasted after seeing this particular result. How realistic and calming this scenic wallpaper is!

In this scenic wallpaper prompt, you can change the subject and atmospheric conditions of your choice. You can even change the type of camera and experiment with different outcomes.

3. Abstract Wallpapers

People with artistic taste prefer to stick with abstract wallpapers. As the name suggests, abstract wallpapers rely on shapes, lines, colors, and patterns to create unique, imaginative visuals.

Abstract wallpapers are non-representational, artistic, creative, use bold colors, and convey emotions. Hence, you do not have to stick with my tokens in the prompt. Instead, you can use any token that has these characteristics to generate wonderful, artistic abstract wallpapers. 

Prompt 4: abstract shape of [fox face], perfect use of negative space, surrounded by minimalistic frenetic line work, high resolution wallpaper, minimalistic, 4k –ar 16:9

Midjourney abstract wallpaper

Again, a good result from Midjourney. As usual, just replace the subject “fox face” with your own input token for personalization. Be ready to hit “reroll” a few times if you don’t get the expected result.

Next, I have experimented with the token “geometric shapes” for this abstract wallpaper type. My quest for the best abstract wallpaper has never let me down.

Prompt 5: A geometric representation of [energy], flat vector wallpaper, super resolution, apt color palette, 4k –ar 16:9

Midjourney abstract wallpaper

Prompt 6: a geometric representation of [nano particles], flat vector wallpaper, super resolution, apt color palette, 4k –ar 16:9

Midjourney abstract wallpaper

I know this is the same prompt template that I previously showcased. I Just wanted to share this since this one is my favorite.

4. Game Asset Wallpapers

To all the game fanatics out there, imagine having a captivating game wallpaper with epic landscapes of your favorite virtual worlds or featuring the iconic characters you’ve come to know and love.

With the Midjourney prompts I have disclosed here, you can have personalized gaming wallpapers.

Prompt 7: [luminescent caverns of eldoria], [ancient passageways], [otherworldly light], in the style of [roblox], unreal engine, volumetric lighting –ar 16:9

As mentioned in the opening of this wallpaper type, you can highly customize this prompt as it allows you to specify the subject with an adjective, lighting, and the type of game you like.

I repeated the same prompt template here, to showcase how effective and sensitive this prompt is. As you can see from the outcome, Midjourney handled this prompt wisely after I only changed the type of game of my choice.

5. Minimalistic Wallpapers

People who love clutter-free and elegant aesthetics will opt for minimalistic wallpapers. When it comes to minimalistic wallpapers, I should say that Midjourney nailed it.

A lo-fi wallpaper is often characterized by soft, muted colors and grainy textures, these wallpapers evoke a sense of simplicity and warmth that can’t be replicated by modern digital visuals.

So, immerse yourself in the gentle embrace of Midjourney’s lo-fi wallpapers, where time seems to slow down and worries fade away.

Since the copyright infringement of AI-generated images is controversial, I have not / barely used any organization or artist names in my prompt. If you are okay with the uncertainty of this issue, feel free to experiment with different artists, organizations, or software names to achieve a variety of different results.
