Is there a way to draw ER diagrams? or the only way is to upload a screen shot or some picture?

something like this more or less:

enter image description here

Maybe something like:

    _________               ______
   | Account |------------ | Item | 
   ----------               ------- 
  | bla bla |

but how can I draw the circles? or rhombus?

Currently, Database Administrators does not support lines or shapes of any kind suitable for building diagrams. The way you have done it in your meta question, composing a diagram elsewhere, uploading its image to an image hosting service and linking to the picture in your post, appears to be the only option so far.
