False advertising is not a good look, Samsung.

Photographer Dunja Djudjic is accusing the world’s largest smartphone maker of using one of her photos and presenting it on their website as a photo taken with its Galaxy A8 Star phone.

In a post on DIY Photography, Djudjic explains how Samsung is using her photos, taken with a DSLR camera, to showcase the Galaxy A8’s portrait mode. The photographer made the discovery after noticing one of her pictures uploaded to the photo community EyeEm was sold through its partner, Getty.

Excited to see who purchased the photo and find out how they were using it, Djudjic executed a reverse image search. That’s when she discovered the image being used on the Samsung Malaysia website, presented as a photo taken with the Galaxy A8 Star.
