Yes, you can do the above. No, you can't use the same programs. PSP is
Windows-only, and Photoshop only Macintosh and Windows.
The GIMP is a fair high-end image manipulator, but as of the last time I

ease-of-use for simple image tasks.
In principle you could run either under a Windows emulator but I don't
