Does a technical writer really need Photoshop? Maybe Elements for crops and simple edge effects, but a full PS license seems a bit overkill.

Maybe Adobe figures Captivate is adequate for the purposes of
technical documentation. Leaving Illustrator out always seemed weird
to me though it might not be the best drawing tool for documentation.
Usually if I need to draw something it's a flowchart.

I have Captivate and Photoshop installed but 90% of the time I use
Alt-PrintScreen and Paint since when all I need to do is crop and save
it's faster.
