I worked on a huge military project where the art department did exactly that. We (the writers) would take the photos and deliver them to the illustrators who would load them into AutoCAD and create vector line art by tracing the pictures and then delete the photographs from underneath.

I did a simple drawing in PhotoShop once using the same technique, but I would not recommend that application for this. Illustrator might be well-suited for the task, but I've never used it.

I'm wondering how practical it is to take digital photos of the equipment
and then use a software package to trace over the parts of the picture we
want to use. I think Adobe Illustrrator lets you do such tracing but haven't
tried. Any other software that could help us? How do others draw pictures
when you're not an artist?
