I have a document with a main heading followed by a picture with some contact information to the right of it. After that the other subheadings continue.

I want to do the same in LaTeX. Which I am actually quite familiar with. Which method would you recommend to get the same layout using LaTeX? I really want to use this layout.

I’m not sure what exactly you want but if it’s simply a picture side by side with some text, then two minipages will help:

\noindent
\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
  \centering
  \includegraphics{…}
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
  \centering
  Some text
\end{minipage}

Be sure not to leave any space between the two minipages though (hence the % comment at the end of the first), otherwise the minipages won’t fit and be broken apart.

You could add how to center the text in the 2nd minipage as requested in the title. –  Hendrik Vogt Mar 25 '11 at 14:00
    
You could also mention that a \noindent command before the first minipage environment could be necessary. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 25 '11 at 14:04
