Would artists like Shakespeare and Michelangelo still be creative with modern technology such as Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop?

Absolutely.  Shakespeare and Michelangelo were creative with the tools they had during the time in which they created.  Moving either of them to modern times does not change their innate creativity.  It simply gives them more tools to create and express themselves with.  It is not like the tools that Shakespeare and Michelangelo used many years ago do not exist anymore.  They do.  Shakespeare could still physically write with paper and pen, and paint and brushes still exist today as well.  What the modern tools give them is new mediums to create and express with.  With a keyboard it's possible that Shakespeare would have been even more prolific. And with modern artistic tools it's possible that Michelangelo would have been even more diversified in his artistic mediums.

FULLY AGREE, BUT WERE THEY TIME TRAVELLED TO THE PRESENT, THEY PROBABLY WOULD HAVE TAKEN A COUPLE OF LIFE-TIMES TO GET OVER ADVANCES AND CHANGES THAT HAD OCCURRED.
