GCK is a powerful program.  As for pictures/illustrations, you can export these easily using the EXPORT command and paste these as PICTS anywhere, including Word documents.  I have used GCK quite a bit since I was at Dartmouth when the program was being developed by a researcher in the Biology Dept.  I haven't used the Plasmid Artist program since I had GCK available to me, so I can't really compare the two programs.  I know that I would try to use GCK whenever possible since it is very simple and powerful.

I hope that this helps.

I have no connection with Textco so this opinion is based only on the performance of the program.
