The word ‘Giclee' owes its origin to French language. The printing of the original fine art works on to the canvas using the digital technology and multi color inkjet printers is what classic giclee print is all about. A digital photo or a scan of a classic art work is first of all loaded into a computer and then manipulated where ever it is necessary. Alterations of any kind can be made to change the color, remove flaws in the original photograph, brightness or even the resolution. A colored photograph can be changed onto black and white or sepia and the opposite is also true. The Giclee Prints has helped both masses and the artists alike.

The artists have benefited economically as they are now able to sell their art work to more number of people.
