Can I use Elements 2020 to draw / add masks to faces of JPG pictures?

This is part of an ongoing (3rd year) joke Christmas Card which two of us send.  This year we want to add 2020 masks to a picture taken a couple of years ago.  We live several hundred miles apart, so retaking pictures with masks on isn't an option.

 

I have Elements 2020 but have never done much more than crop, resize, add text, enhance, and repair scratches.

 

I have an Android phone (Galaxy S20+) and connectivity between phone and laptop if needed. 

 

Thanks in advance

 

 

Can someone advise

1. In Photoshop Elements Editor, open a picture of a mask

2. Use one of the selection tools, e.g.lasso tool, to select the mask.  The drill is to "extract" the mask from the background.Go to Edit>copy to place the selection on the clipboard.

3. Open the picture file to which the mask is to be added. Go to Edit>copy. The mask will come in on a separate layer.

4. Activate the Move tool and position & resize the mask as indicated.
