An Organizing Companion for all your Midjourney Explorations

TagAlong brings an incredibly powerful set of organizational tools to Midjourney. Designed to work with Midjourney Alpha, it fills in all of the gaps in organizational structure, while integrating seamlessly with your workflow. Customize it to the organizational structure you want, whether that simple sets of categorized tags, or deeply complex sets of nested tags. Then, use all of that tag information to quickly navigate your images.

The Midjourney Alpha website is great for image creation. It offers a quick, stylish interface that lets you create your prompts quickly. But organizing and interacting with existing images is a major shortcoming, and thus far Midjourney has not treated it as a priority either in what has been developed or what has been talked about for the Alpha site. 

This leaves power users in a difficult spot: we create large numbers of images, but it's difficult to access and organize these in useful ways. Midjourney said that they see the Alpha website as more aimed at average users, not power-users, and that power-users are welcome to continue to use Discord. But Discord's organizational features are highly lacking as well. TagAlong is designed to give power-users the best of both worlds: still use the elegant Alpha website interface, but have organizational features that go far beyond either the Alpha website or Discord.

The best way to understand TagAlong is to look at what organizational systems exist in Discord and Midjourney Alpha, and compare that with what TagAlong adds. 

Tags, Folders, or Channels? 

Comparing different organizational systems is always a case of comparing apples to oranges. However, in broad terms, both the Midjourney Alpha website and Discord provide some classification systems... ways to provide some structure to your Midjourney content.

- On Discord, these are channels you create on your own server, which you can then images channels in.
- On Midjourney Alpha, these are folders (which arguably behave like rudimentary tags).
- TagAlong bring a full-featured and robust tagging system.

For the purpose of comparison, we'll call all of these approaches classifications, and compare how they behave on each. 

Classifying Images


MidJourney Alpha

+ TagAlong

Create Classifications

Create Channels, then create images directly in Channels.

Create Folders, then apply add images you create to folders. 

Create Tags, and apply them to images you add to TagAlong.

With TagAlong, you add selections from Midjourney by draggin-and-dropping them into your side panel. Once you do so, you unlock a world of possibilities in how you organize them. 

Set rules for classifications to be applied to images.

Images can be created directly in channels, but no ability to automatically add to other channels. 

Create Smart Folders that add images when they are created. 

Create Autotag Rules that apply whenever you add an image to TagAlong.

Setting up auto-tagging rules in TagAlong is quick and straight-forward, but also very powerful. 

Create classification rules that use more than just prompts.

No Automatic classification.

Smart Folders only allows rules based on prompts. 

Supports Autotag rules with a wide range of inputs: job type, date, image reference, and more.  

Allow for rules that are more than just prompts. Any parameter, the date, other tags, even source images can all be used to define classification rules. 

Modify collections of automatically classified images.

No Automatic classification. 

If an image matches a Smart Folder, it cannot be removed. Images that do not match rules cannot be added to a smart folder. 

Add or remove any tags from any image without restrictions.

Once tags are applied to images, you can make any changes you want, adding additional tags, removing those that were applied afterwards. This is very different from Midjourney Alpha, where a Smart Folder doesn't allow the freedom to remove images from it, or add new images to it. 

Easily apply classifications to images after creation.

Moving images between Channels requires sending commands to Midjourney and must be run on individual jobs. 

Select images from the archive and add them to a folder. 

Quick Tags allow you to set up a group of tags and apply them to filter results or selected images in seconds. 

If you want to apply tags to images after they've been imported, TagAlong offers a range of options: add tags directly to an individual image; create a new filter, and add one or more tags to everything that matches that filter; select any number of images individually, and apply tags to those images. 




+ TagAlong

Add, apply, and modify classifications in seconds, without leaving your workflow.

Create a new Channel is quick, but you cannot quickly move things between channels.

Creating a new folder is quick, but must exit the create view to work with the archive.

Access any part of TagAlong without leaving your workflow, meaning you can organize your images in seconds while you create.  

Create new tags, apply tags to individual images, multiple images, filter results, and more within your sidepanel, without leaving your workflow. 

Use sorting, pinned and collapsed images for a more efficient and organized view.



A wealth of organizational tools lets you keep the information you want, where you want it. 

Create new tags, apply tags to individual images, multiple images, filter results, and more within your sidepanel, without leaving your workflow. 

A wealth of settings to customize your workflow exactly how you want it. 

Discord wasn't made as an image-creation platform, so its display settings are always going to be an awkward fit. 

Very few customization options for your display and workflow. You can choose the size and ratio of images in your archive, but that's about it. 

A large range of customization options, so that you can create the workflow that works for you. 

Settings to control every element of TagAlong. 

Organizing Classifications



+ TagAlong

Classifications can be categorized

Channels can be organized inside categories.

No ability to group or arrange folders.

Tags can be divided into user-defined categories, with given colours and icons. 

Define your own categorization systems based on what you need. Give your categories colours and icons, so you can always tell what tags belong to what category. 

Classification supports nested structures.

Single level of category only.


Allows for nested tags with an unlimited number of levels.

By organizing your tags in parent and child tags, you can bring even more organization. For example, use a parent tag as a container of several related tags. When you want to add all of those tags to an image or a filter, just add the parent and then 'explode' it to get all the child tags. Use a parent tag in a filter to match all images tagged not only the parent but all child-tags as well. 
Filtering Sorted Images



+ TagAlong

Filter for classifications using logical operators.

No. Can only search for text terms with 'AND'. Can only search across channels with 'OR'. 

No. 'AND' searching within prompts only. 

Filter tags using AND, OR and NOT operators to create complex filters. 

AND, OR, and NOT operators bring more power and customization to your filtering, meaning that no matter how complex you make your tagging system, you'll always be able to find exactly what you need. 

Filter using parameters.

Performs poorly when using multiple search terms.

Partial. Some parameters are included, many are not.

Filter using any parameter. 

Filtering images uses the same system as the auto-tagging rules... tags, prompts, parameters, even source-images. 

Save filters



Yes. Save filters and then pull them up in seconds. 

Because filters and auto-rules are the same, you can use the same approach to save and access them in seconds. Take any of your saved autotag rules and use it as a search, or vice-versa. 

Behind the scenes



+ TagAlong

Provides editing classification system in table format.



Edit any of your tags, tag-systems, and autotag rules either in the Chrome Sidepanel or a table. 

While the TagAlong interface is quick and efficient, if you're working with a lot of information at once - for example you've got a long list of tags you want to create - it can be quicker to hop into coda, and work with them in a table format, even pasting from other tables or CSVs.

Make your classified images available to other web services through an API. 

Partial. Discord is accessible via API, but requires coding. 


Yes. With your data in, you can make it accessible through APIs, Zapier, and other services. 

Coda can serve as a powerful gateway to connect your tagged information and images elsewhere... Whether that's organizational tools like Dropbox, collaborative tools like Slack, social-media tools like Instagram or Reddit.
