It is not uncommon for social media influencers and bloggers to edit their pictures to make them look more appealing. However, the hawk-eyed, self-proclaimed "Diet Sabyas" on the internet won't let you get away with faking it on the internet. Tupi Saravia, a big social media influencer from Buenos Aires in Argentina, with a huge following of 283k people on Instagram, recently faced the brunt of such scrutiny online. Tupi has been known to share incredible travel photos on Instagram that could make anyone envy her, but turns out there is way lot of editing that goes behind the gorgeous pictures she uploads on her social media.

However, it is not like Tupi Saravia isn't in a mood to accept any of these allegations. She confessed to BuzzFeed News after the photos went viral that she never tried to hide about her photoshopping the pictures. "I used an app called Quickshot to help the composition of the photograph when the sky is burned or overexposed. They (followers) were always aware of this because I never hide it. I always tell (them) the apps I use," Tupi Saravia said.
