This paper examines the impact of the number of color patches included in profiling targets on the subjective and objective quality of a printer profile. The subjective quality is assessed through qualitative means that examine whether a color difference is visually perceptible. The objective quality is assessed through quantitative means that examine the colorimetric accuracy of the profile. A paired comparison test is used in the former case and cumulative frequency distribution curves and nonparametric statistics are employed to assess the latter. This paper provides insight into to perceptibility of total color difference and on the creation of ICC profiles. The result of both assessments is that there is no significant difference between the different size profiling targets. The differences between the created profiles are nonetheless discussed without regard of statistical significance.
