Given that Photoshop is now bundled with TCS2, that would be my choice for
most of your needs. I prefer SnagIt for screenshots because of its tighter
integration; it has a rudimentary editor and Photoshop can do more serious
work on the files it creates. For really simple line drawings, Photoshop
works, but for most diagrams and such, I use Visio because it's quicker.
