Yes it is important to know Photoshop.
No it is not a good use of your time. Most writers (in my experience) can

don't need to know how to do masking and funky effects.

Use your time to learn Java or some other programming language. Knowing one
language will help you understand others and having code samples in addition
to writing samples is a big plus.
