Sydney socialite is accused of clumsily editing herself in photos of planes – but she insists they are NOT photoshopped
A Sydney socialite has been accused of Photoshopping her Instagram images after fans noticed the backgrounds closely resemble stock photos.
On Tuesday, fashion designer and author Suzan Mutesi featured her questionable photos on the snark account Celeb__spellcheck.
One image, posted by Suzan in December 2020, appears to show her superimposed in front of a seaplane, her hand barely touching the side of the plane due to the seemingly awkward mounting.
But speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday, Suzan denied editing her images at all, saying: “If it was [Photoshopped], I would have no problem owning it.
Annoying! Fashion designer Suzan Mutesi was accused of a Photoshop failure on Tuesday after sharing this image of herself seemingly superimposed in front of a seaplane
In the seaplane image, the water was visibly blurry around Suzan’s legs, which seemed to suggest she had been smudged with an editing tool.
Celeb__spellcheck then shared another photo of a different model standing in front of a remarkably similar background, to prove Suzan’s post was edited.
Fans were quick to comment on the image, with one writing, “Honestly impressed with the photoshop skills,” while another added, “Wow, that’s terrible work.
The plot thickens: Suzan shared this suspicious photo on Instagram in September. A fan asked him in the comments section, “What app do you use to do this?”
‘What a failure!’ one wrote, while another said, “Check hand on plane.”
Suzan adamantly denied altering the photo in a lengthy statement on Wednesday, saying, “No, it’s not Photoshopped.” If so, I have no problem owning it.
“In life, to succeed, you have to have a vision and then think big. Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of my mentors, says these are his five tips for success…’
She then listed the following five tips: “Have a vision, think big, don’t listen to the naysayers, work your ass off and give back.”
Response: Fans were quick to comment on the image, with one writing, “Honestly impressed with the photoshop skills,” while another added, “Wow, that’s terrible work”.
“And that’s what I do for myself and my followers,” she continued. “Trying to inspire them to aspire and achieve their dreams.
‘This [seaplane] the post was posted 12 months ago in December 2020. But I took this photo in 2019. There is nothing wrong with having a dream.
Suzan shared another suspicious photo of herself in front of a plane in September, prompting a fan to ask, “What app do you use to do this?” Please share, I need to edit a photo background hehe.’
The photo in question showed Suzan in front of the plane next to a travel bag, which cast no shadow and was placed at an odd angle on the floor.
‘It’s a real hun place! I didn’t have to change the background! The plants are really we were lucky,” replied Suzan.
The commentator replied: ‘Huh? This photo is edited baby – can you tell haha which plants? ‘
Questions: Suzan previously denied photoshopping her images and even called a follower ‘sleazy’ for suggesting one of her posts had been edited
Suzan then called the commentator “sleazy” for asking the question.
The fan asked why it was fishy and insisted he was “just asking a question”, adding, “I wanted to use it but it seems obvious.”
Without giving anything away, Suzan replied, “I know, baby, I was teasing!!! You know that.’
