Canon Selphy CP 1300 Terrible print quality for photos


Several minutes ago I unboxed a Canon Selphy CP 1300 which I bought from Amazon as a package together with a box of photo paper and ink cartridges by Bubprint.
Tried printing US passport photos. The result was terrible. The image of the person is ok, but in the white background, there are several small artifacts that spoil the print entirely. The photo looks perfect in-camera (I used a smartphone app dedicated to passport photos).
Printed directly from iPhone. Set up was quick and simple.

I would greatly appreciate any advice.

Thank you very much in advance.

Canon Selphy should give very good pictures without fuss.

Maybe you could try a computer with usb cable and the provided printing software ?
