OK scouter4, firstly you'll need a way of transferring the files from your phone to your PC; you can do this with either infrared, bluetooth, or by using a cable to connect. Most modern phones nowadays have bluetooth or infrared, and if yours can take video I'm sure it'll have one of those.

Secondly, your computer will need either bluetooth, infrared, or a socket for the cable. If it has neither of these, you can get it a BlueTooth Dongle (gives your PC bluetooth functionality), available from a good PC store, or an infrared communicator (a simple box with infrared that plugs in with USB).

OK, once you've got a way to transfer your videos and photos to your PC, you'll need some means of editing them. This is where it gets a weeny bit tricky. Phones record video in a file format called 3GP. 99% of video editors can't recognise this file type, so you'll have to convert it to something they can read. I use MikSoft Mobile 3GP converter. It converts 3GP to AVI (a very common video format which 99% of video editors will recognise). You can get MikSoft here:

It's completely free, too.

So, where were we? Ah, yes. Convert your video with MikSoft, then, using one of the many video editors out there (nonags.com is a good place to try), edit the video how you wish.

As for photos, the same applies, except that you won't need to convert the file format, as they'll be saved as either a GIF or a JPEG. Just use any nifty photo editor on them and do with them as you like.

I hope this helps,

If you think it does, don't forget the IQ points!
