I got the blues blues question

Left: an iPhone pic of the print. Right: screenshot from Affinity Photo before export (looks the same in Canon Pro Print & Layout).

This is an approximation, of course, but the point is that for some reason the big Prussian blue area especially has turned almost black. The other colors are accurate, it's mostly just the dark blue that's going too dark.

I could compensate in Affinity Photo, but I want to make any necessary permanent adjustments in Canon Pro Print & Layout.

My next step is to make a small print on Innova IFA22 using its Pro-1000 profile to rule out this being a Canon Premium Fine Art/ICC profile combo. But assuming it's not that...

...HERE'S THE QUESTION:

Short of buying stuff, what would be the best approach to figuring this out?

The Affinity Photo color space is RGB8, and I exported it to a TIFF using bicubic resampling. But again, it looks the same in Canon PP&L on the screen.

TIA
