How can I "Photoshop" superimposed name in photo
The attached XCF file has the name of the person in the photograph. For humor purposes, we would like to change the person's name, from the original name of the chief police officer of a country, to one of the most famous athletes/politicians/singers/celebrities of the same country. We were planning on keeping the "Ph.D" part and the rank and title underneath the person's name.
The task for us looks difficult. Behind the name is a blue, pin-striped uniform.

Any tips for a beginner?

Thank you so much

Use the Clone tool (Clone) to copy part of the shirt over the letters. Make sure that you align properly on the stripes; Ctrl-click (to make the source) on a dark line, and start the copy (click) on a dark line too. The only place where you have to be really accurate is the right sleeve, since the rest will likely be at least partially hidden by your new text, but that sleeve is easy to do.
