To edit your image with the Midjourney inpainting feature:
There has been a bundle of Midjourney updates in the past couple of months related to options allowing users to edit and extend the generated image. The latest update has been long expected, and the Midjourney community is excited about it. We’re talking about the inpainting feature called Vary (Region).
In this article, we’ll explore how the Vary (Region) feature works and how you can use it to edit your images with Midjourney.
Midjourney released the new inpainting feature on August 22, announcing it on their Discord server.
It appears as a Vary (Region) button next to Vary (Subtle) and Vary (Strong) after an image has been upscaled. The inpainting tool allows you to select and regenerate a particular area in the image.
This is extremely useful when you only want to replace an object with another one in an image, but don’t want to generate a new image, since it won’t turn out exactly like the previous one.
If you don’t see the option, close and reopen the app to update your Discord client. The inpainting feature is available in Midjourney Model Versions V5.0, V5.1, V5.2, and niji 5.
Other Midjourney users and Midjourney itself recommend using the /remix mode (which you can activate with /settings) to activate a text box in the Vary (Region) feature that allows you to modify the prompt and get the best results.
Also, Midjourney provides several tips and tricks in their Discord announcement about using the inpainting feature:

Having the above tips in mind, we can now explore how to use the feature to edit your images generated in Midjourney.
If you don’t like the results, click on the ‘Undo’ option in the top-left corner to reverse the image to its original.

The recently introduced Vary (Region) feature in Midjourney provides an exciting and innovative tool for users to selectively edit images.
This inpainting tool offers flexibility in replacing specific parts of an image without regenerating the whole. Users can explore various ways to modify their generated images using both rectangular and lasso selecting options, combined with prompt remixing. Although impressive in its capabilities, the tool may still require careful application to achieve desired results.
The update represents a significant enhancement in Midjourney's offerings, enabling more nuanced image manipulations and extending the platform's appeal to a broader audience.
