I'm no expert, but as far as I know it's used for mainly for textures, they in turn get imported to programs like maya or 3dmax to wrap around meshes (fancy word for 3d models). I could be completely offbase, but it should give you something to investigate if you're interested.

Paint Shop Pro, or any graphics program, are used for most things that are visual in a game. You can do some procedural graphics (visuals generated wholly by code), but most games that have a degree of polish have hand-painted or graphically manipulated visuals.

For 3D games, these are textures, and for 2D games they are flat visuals. In either, that covers anything that isn't procedurally generated. (Which is the vast majority in my experience.)

I use Photoshop and Painter, but art is my speciality. Paint Shop or the like should be fine for quick jobs.

That's the short version. For more detail, you'll need to ask more detailed questions.
