We would suggest a free open-source desk top publishing application such as scribus, which will give you professional results at large paper sizes. For graphics work (graphs and diagrams etc), if you don't have access to Adobe Photoshop, try one of the many 'cloud' apps available online - splashup (like Adobe Photoshop, it creates images from scratch), fotoflexer or picnik (you need to upload a basic image to edit with these).
If you are using a microsoft product and require a pdf converter, a freely available add-in is available from the Microsoft Downoad Centre.
