Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. I am learning to use GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP). It’s similar to Photoshop, but it’s free. There are many online and YouTube tutorials to help us along in learning. This photo is an example of cutting and pasting. I cut the vase of roses from one photo and pasted them into the photo of the table.
This photo is of silent move star Mary Pickford. I put in the text as a “layer.” It will be an illustration for one of my short stories.
