PhotoShop is more versatile and has a shorter learning curve. Illustrator is good if you are making pin diagrams (semiconductors etc).
You can take any screenshot, photo of a product, or a picture and edit it in PhotoShop. Illustrator is a designer. Whatever little I know. Illustrator you can't master over a weekend. Photoshop, you can learn to make basic edits in a day.

My writing group is planning to buy either PhotoShop or Illustrator. We need a tool to edit graphics that have been added to PowerPoint or MSWord files. We get PowerPoint slides to edit and clean up for delivery. In places, artwork has been pasted into the slide, but contains white boxes that cover bits of the drawing or text. This method doesn't work in grayscale because the hidden lines or text show up again. We need a tool that lets us remove text in the graphics where we do not have the source file. Are either of these the right tool for this? Which tool would you recommend?
