Legacy Aspect Ratios
--ar parameter changes the aspect ratio of the generated image. An aspect ratio is the width-to-height ratio of an image. It is typically expressed as two numbers separated by a colon, such as 7:4 or 4:3.

A square image has equal width and height, described as a 1:1 aspect ratio. The image could be 1000px × 1000px, or 1500px × 1500px, and the aspect ratio would still be 1:1. A computer screen might have a ratio of 16:10. The width is 1.6 times longer than the height. So the image could be 1600px × 1000px, 4000px × 2000px, 320px x 200px, etc. The default aspect ratio is 1:1.
--aspect must use whole numbers. Use 139:100 instead of 1.39:1.
The aspect ratio impacts the shape and composition of a generated image.
Some aspect ratios may be slightly changed when upscaling.
The default aspect ratio is 1:1.
Legacy Max Aspect Ratios
Different Midjourney Version Models have different maximum aspect ratios.
|Version 5||Version 4c (default)||Version 4a or 4b||Version 3||Test / Testp||niji 4||niji 5|
|Ratios||any*||1:2 to 2:1||Only: 1:1, 2:3 or 3:2||5:2 to2:5||3:2 to 2:3||1:2 to 2:1||any*|
--ar parameter will accept any aspect ratio from 1:1 (square) up to the maximum aspect ratio for each model. However, final outputs may be slightly modified during image generation or upscaling. Example: prompts using
--ar 16:9 (1.78) create images with a
7:4 (1.75) aspect ratio.
* Aspect ratios greater than 2:1 are experimental and may produce unpredicatble results.

How to Change the Aspect Ratio
Use Aspect Ratio Parameters
--aspect <value>:<value>, or
--ar <value>:<value> to the end of your prompt.
