Save database diagram as image

On Database » Microsoft SQL Server

I am looking for a program or an easy way to save database diagrams as

images. I use the integrated diagram tools in enterprise manager, and would

like to output that as an image. If I use Visio, I have to re-arrange the

tables, which seems like a wasted effort. I can also take screen shots, then

paste that into an imaging program, but this is somewhat tedious. I then use

the diagram images to integrate into chm files for documentation.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a tool to maintain databases and

output images?

Thanks,

Jeff
