Johanna Olsson, who has an Instagram following of over 500k had many followers pointing out her many editing errors in multiple of her uploaded pictures. The pictures in question had been altered with Photoshop to change their backgrounds in a “painfully obvious” manner, The Mirror reports.

One picture of the 28-year-old shows her looking as though she is levitating off the ground attempting to place herself on a bridge over the River Siene, the Mirror reports.

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA This is the fakest picture ive ever seen. You’re kidding right @johannaeolsson” commented one user.

“Its photoshopped, and its not even good😂” commented another.

Mamamia reported that Johanna has in fact been to Paris but admitted in an apology that she did photoshop some images. “I wanted to talk a little bit about the pictures I posted in Paris. So I did one picture, shot it and didn’t think it looked that nice… so I took a different background and put the background into it,” she reportedly said through Instagram Stories. “And when I put it up, nobody noticed, so I thought, this is good.”

“I admit it wasn’t my finest Photoshop skills. Now in Sweden this thing has gone crazy and TV shows want me to come on and talk about my ‘fake travelling’,” she added.

“It’s a bit ridiculous I think. There are a lot of influencers out there that Photoshop in birds, rainbows or crazy skies and I could do that but I don’t like that,” Olsson continued. “I just wanted to make that clear that I was in Paris, but I did Photoshop the background, but I’m not going to take them down because it’s a collaboration.”

According to the Mirror, the influencer was on an all-expenses paid trip for fashion collaborations.
