With the generation of cyberspace came the webmuseums, which characterize current information environments where they are made exhibitions of works of art in virtual environments. Thus, the use of image was also affected. If before the exposures were restricted a geographical region today is different because anyone can see works by famous artists without leaving home (ubiquity), provided it has a device with Internet network access. Thus, this transformation occurs the formal and content of artworks in its implementation in digital environments. This includes changes in aesthetic qualities of the artwork produced on different media face of new technological devices for building up information for museums digital imagery, as to be digitized and translated into art catalogs in digital environments or webmuseums become simulacrum of original and their shape and organic material is transformed into computer language Bits and Bites. In this sense, it is proposed to verify the impacts that new technologies of information and communication technology (ICT) cause the aesthetics of images displayed in these environments. With use of the method descriptive literature, there has to analyze the characteristics that differ from printed catalogs of artworks museum sites and webmuseums.
