    I'm looking to print flyers on standard sized paper. Ideally what I'd like to be able to do is to divide the page into 6-7 sections. Section 1 will take up the majority of the page (at least half the page) while the remaining space will be divided up into equally sized spaces.

    I was told that Adobe InDesign is a good one to use. Anyone have any cheaper/more newb friendly suggestions?

    What you describe is a COLLAGE- look up "collage software" on Google and a million hits show- and also look up "collage instructions"
    but
    Use whatever freeware photo editing software you have to copy/paste several images to a blank page matching your desired paper size. This is easy to do with freeware IRFANVIEW as an example.

    InDesign isn’t a program you want to use casually. I’ve used it semi-casually for years and have been semi-confused about what it is doing many times.

    Microsoft Publisher is part of Office Pro. It is easier to use than InDesign if you happen to have a copy.

    Serif has a lite version of PagePlus that is free. It is probably all you need for making a flyer: http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/

    If you are really making only a montage and not a flyer with text the free version of PhotoPlus might work out since it has layers.

    Ok, you guys nailed it. I'm making a collage/montage, however, each "sector" will be a combination of text and images. Does this alter any of your suggestions?
