I am trying to figure out if there is a good software program that can be used to create diagrams or photos for a manual. Specifically what I need are images or drawings or diagrams of people in various positions doing a job in their work environment. It is for safety training and job duty qualifications. The employee is a bus driver and the images would show the employee inside the bus doing the various things they need to do. The bus is a paratransit transit bus so there are wheelchairs and securements and so forth. The goal is to show the prospective employee what their duties would look like to prequalify them for the position to make sure they can do the job safely and are physically capable.

Any suggestions?

depends really on what you have and what you want to spend. The entire document can be created in word successfully what if you want the professional look inDesign would do.

If you only want to be able to crop and resize digital photos then almost any image editor will do.
If you want to add text, arrows, shapes, clip art etc then you need a more advanced bitmap editor.
If you want to add text, arrows, shapes, clip art etc at high quality then you need a vector graphic app.
There is some freeware for all the above. Pro apps can be very expensive.

As graphicsman commented, the software you are using for creating the document may be relevant if that has some graphic capability.
