Image quality assessment is a difficult and complex task. Quality attributes have been used in the evaluation of perceived image quality in an attempt to reduce the complexity and the dimensionality. Recently, Pedersen et al. (CIC, 2009) proposed a set of quality attributes for the evaluation of color prints. In this paper we perform an experimental validation of these quality attributes to ensure that the criteria on which they were selected are fulfilled. The results show a correspondence between the quality attributes and the criteria. The quality attributes are therefore considered as a good starting point to describe overall image quality.
