Computer art is a form of art that integrates artistic ability and contemporary technology to create an artwork. The use of computer graphics is revolutionizing the graphics design fields. Although there will always be a need for a personal creative approach to making visual art, there is also a need of r accuracy, speed, and the ability to update visual information.

Computers have brought change to every corner of modern society especially in art. The
internet is full of the concept of art, desktop wallpapers, and many other kinds of images that have
been drawn by some user at a computer: Computer is very essential now in the field of art.
When you produce images or characters in movies and television using computers, the process
is called computer-generated images. It is the application of computer graphics to create or
contribute to images in art, printed media, video games, films, television, programs, commercials,
videos, and stimulators. The visual scenes may be dynamic or static, and maybe two-dimensional
(2D), though the term "CGI" is most commonly used to refer to three-dimensional computer
graphics used for creating scenes or special effects in films and television. They can also use by a
home user and edited together on programs such as Windows Movie Maker or iMovie.
The images in animations created with computer software for movies and videos games, as
well as TV and online commercials are some examples of computer-generated images. The myriad special effects in today's movies, which mix real actors with aliens are mostly generated on the
computer. There is no limit to the fantasy world that can be created with computer-generated
imagery techniques.

Computer-generated image is used for visual effects because the quality is often higher and
effects are more controllable than another more physical based process, such as constructing
miniatures for effects shots or hiring extras for crowd scenes, and because it allows the creation of
images that would not be feasible using any other technology. It can also allow a single artist to
produce content without the use of factors, expensive set pieces, or props.
The current availability of computer-generated image software and increased computer speeds
has allowed individual artists and small companies to produce professional-grade films, games,
and fine art from their home computers
