I have seen manuals -- typically assembly, maintenance, or parts manuals for
machinery -- that used photos. The photo has rarely been as useful as a good
line drawing of the item (particularly if you need to know how something is
assembled -- a good line drawing can show that a lot better than even a
photograph of the unassembled part).

JFOA. YMMV. HAND!
