A prominent Sydney socialite has been swept up in another Photoshop scandal.

Suzan Mutesi, who boasts one million followers on Instagram, was suspected of using an editing app like Facetune or FaceApp in one of her recent posts.

In the images, the 35-year-old poses in an Indonesian pool with a floating breakfast in front of her.

Her face looks suspiciously smooth and glossy, and is a different shade to her body – a dead giveaway of a FaceApp touch up.

Adding to the speculation is a short and seemingly unedited video of Suzan in the pool shows her looking much different and far more natural. 

However, the difference could be down to a number of other reasons, such as lighting and angles. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Suzan for comment.  

The socialite was previously forced to deny Photoshopping accusations after Influencer watchdog account Celeb Spellcheck highlighted some questionable images on her page.

In the photos, she appeared to have clumsily edited herself into stock images of aircraft.

One image, posted by the influencer in December 2020, appears to show her superimposed in front of a seaplane, with her hand barely touching the side of the plane due to the seemingly clumsy editing. 

But speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Suzan denied she’d edited her images at all, saying: ‘If it was [Photoshopped], I would have no problem owning it.’

In the seaplane image, the water was noticeably blurred around Suzan’s legs, which appeared to suggest it had been smudged with an editing tool.

Celeb Spellcheck then shared another photo of a different model standing in front of a remarkably similar backdrop, to prove Suzan’s post was edited.

Fans were quick to comment on the image, with one writing, ‘Honestly impressed with the photoshopping skills,’ while another added: ‘Wow that’s a terrible job.’ 

‘What a fail!’ one wrote, while another said: ‘Check out the hand on the plane.’

Suzan categorically denied she’d edited the photo in a lengthy statement on Wednesday, saying: ‘No it’s not Photoshopped. If it was I have no problem owning it.

‘In life to be successful 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 five tips as being: ‘Having a vision, thinking big, don’t listen to the naysayers, work your a** off and give back.’

‘And that’s what I am doing for myself and my followers,’ she continued. ‘Trying to inspire them to aspire and fulfil their dreams.

‘This [seaplane] post was posted 12 months ago in December 2020. But I took that photo in 2019. There’s nothing wrong with having a dream.’

Suzan shared another suspicious-looking photo of herself in front of a plane in September, which prompted a fan to ask her: ‘What app are you using 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 ground.

‘It’s an actual location hun! I didn’t have to edit the background! The plants are really we were lucky,’ Suzan responded.

The commenter replied back: ‘Huh? This photo is edited babe – you can tell haha what plants?’

Suzan then called the commenter ‘shady’ for asking the question.

The fan asked why it was shady and insisted he was ‘just asking a question’, adding: ‘I wanted to use it but it looks to obvious.’

Not giving anything away, Suzan replied: ‘I know babe I was teasing!!! You know that.’
