What tools do you recommend for documenting visual elements of instructional design?

I often see instructional designers writing long strings of prose to describe visual elements in instructional design (ID) documentation. I say the adage "a picture is worth a thousand words" applies to ID documentation. Of course, text is the ideal way to document copy and audio scripts but I recommend turning to other tools to document charts, photos, illustrations, animations, and interactivities in the ID of an elearning course. Tools such as a wireframe, storyboard, sketch, and photograph not only make it easier to document ID, they're also more effective. How do you document visual elements in your ID and what tools do you use to do it?
