A French private art college has apologised after one of its promotional images was doctored to include more black students.

The photo of a class trip to an art gallery was posted on a US promotional website for Lyon's Émile‑Cohl art school.

Students noticed it was altered to darken the skin of white students, with black students digitally inserted.

The school has apologised, and blamed the doctored image on a US PR company.

Social media users posted comparisons of the original image and the altered version on Twitter.
