Visual database schema/structure?

Hi,

       Is there some way i could get a visual schema/structure for a  mysql database?

  I need this to be able to show people how my database is currently  structured and find out if it's the right structure .

 I think a visual blueprint would be more helpful as that would help someone to quicky understand the structure and advice.


I was thinking of exporting the structure using phpmyadmin on a cpanel.


Can something like this be achieved or is there any other (better) alternative?
