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.

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.
