I'm aware that SnagIt does allow some editing of captured images, but I
prefer using PhotoShop for several reasons:

1 - Personal preference (layering capabilities and the ability to save
in a format I can tweak, edit, re-edit, and mess around with multiple
times without having to re-capture the screenshot again)--call that my
own personal neurosis;

Did you ever think of capturing once and then working on a copy of the original?

2 - A company style guide that mandates the use of certain fonts in
callouts that I know I can access from PhotoShop but I'm not sure are
accessible from SnagIt;

You could at least try it to find out.

3 - The belief that any diagram or screenshot I spend 10 minutes
modifying instead of 10 seconds modifying must be somehow superior,
better looking, clearer, and more presentable... (okay, j/k)

You got me there. It MUST be better!
