Interesting ideas. I'm not going to quite that length between Illustrator and 
Photoshop. What I create in Illustrator I just copy and paste into Photoshop as 
a smart object. This removes any resolution discrepancies between the two.

SnagIt can do all those things but not with the same flexibility one can get 
from using Illustrator, especially layers.
Secondly, when you export the file from illustrator to PSD, when you open it in 
Photoshop, why not use  the File > Save as Web function and specify PNG as the 
converted output. You can specify a specific resolution on the Illustrator 
export and Photoshop will retain that dpi al the way to the PNG. I do this all 
the time but create GIFs.
I have even tried the Save as Web from Illustrator, but it doesn't play well 
which is strange. Both Adobe products, both creating web-ready graphics. One 
works (PhotoShop), the other doesn't (Illustrator). I would think the same code 
could be used in both instances.

Several reasons to use Photoshop: 1) I add additional things to the pictures, 
like arrows and labels and callouts and circles and highlights etc., which I 
often generate in Illustrator; much easier to move these elements around when 
they reside on their own layer. 2) I generally make changes to things as I go. 
For both, it's nice to just change the PS image and hit save. Imported graphic 
updates automatically, I don't have to re-save in another format, etc.

And why even bring photoshop into the picture? SnagIt will capture and save as 
PNG directly. That will give you the same quality of captures as what the 
reader would see on the screen.
No additional work required except possible resizing of screens that are larger 
than the image area of the document.

SnagIt is up to v12. It has many excellent new features.
I consider it an essential tool of my trade. It is remarkably inexpensive for 
what it does for me every day.
I would definitely upgrade.

By the way, I'm using version 7 of SnagIt. Is there any reason in the current 
or any other context that I should spend the money to get the latest version?

For the PSD images I capture (SnagIt) the thing on the screen to clipboard and 
copy directly into Photoshop. So the source is definitely good.

Are the PSD documents degraded in PDFs or only on screen in FrameMaker?

If the former, I'd say export to PNG. Resizing in FrameMaker by
changing DPI has no effect on image resolution.
