Software diagramming techniques and tools -- what do you use?

Question for you guys:

When you document your software design, do you create diagrams?
What kind of diagrams do you create?
What tools do you use to help you create them?  Anything automated?

I'm looking to learn more about what's out there for this.  My perception is that there are NOT very good tools for this, but maybe there's a killer app for this I'm not aware of.

(Sorry in advance, but please don't reply with google searches, I've done those too.  I'm trying to learn what people really use, and whether they find them effective.)

Thanks for your thoughts.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned doxygen.  Isn't this the most popular diagramming tool?

Or .NET class diagrams.  Does nobody use those?
Thanks all!
