Default Help choosing software. Please!

I have recently found myself in a job where I need to create ads for a few small magazines, some small newspapers, some web ads, newsletters, and an occasional brochure or card. We are a small not-for-profit and I don't think for the amount of things I am doing that Adobe would be a good choice. To expensive. I've heard it is complicated. I have been using MS Publisher, but not having a PDF converter has been a problem. It is getting irritating sending my publisher files off to be converted, especially when they don't come back right.
Is there a good software package that does well to print and web ads and can export to PDF? Ability to work with photos would be really good too. I am also looking into something that I can make flash web ads - banners etc with. (That may be asking to much from one package.)
Any Suggestions?
