I fully agree, rsvr85.

At least Snipping tool should provide a quick option to directly export the capture to paint if a further edition is required. To accomplish this procedure you have to copy it, to open paint and to paste it there. Not a big deal but it's the typical annoying thing that leads you to consider other software capable to do both tasks. A frequent procedure, by the way.
No, you don't have to copy it. When you make a snip it is directly placed in the clipboard. To edit a snip with Paint is really that easy: make a snip, press CTRL+V in Paint and it's there. You don't even have to save the snip before pasting it to any application.
