Image Captures

The Giclée process begins with an image capture. The resulting print will only be as good as the digital file from which it was created. At Giclée of New England, we strive for the best possible print and begin by making the best possible image capture. We scan the original artwork and make a proof that is as close a match as possible.

We can work with your digital files but will not guarantee results. If your files require extensive color correction or Photoshop manipulation in order to produce an acceptable print, the results may not be entirely satisfactory. If you are not working on a calibrated monitor, it is unlikely that colors will match exactly. For the highest quality Giclée, one must start with the highest quality image capture.

At Giclée of New England, your satisfaction is our goal. We expect the artists we work with to be a part of the proofing process. After we make the initial color corrections, we invite the artist to specify any further corrections he or she would find necessary. Often the artist brings to the proofing process an artistic eye that sees a slight variation or color shift that results in imaging perfection.

The scans we make are 300ppi at 100%. Often the resulting files can be a gigabyte or more in size. We color correct to match the original art as closely as possible.
