iStockPhoto.com / Re: IStock Getty password security issue

As a professional software developer I was very "happy" to get my password sent to me in clear text too... Unbelievable, what a security risk, even if they store it encrypted or encrypt the whole database. But yes, somehow it does not surprise me with that company. At least now I know again why I do not reuse the same passwords for important authentications...

They have around 23 Million files (that includes Vector and Video) currently but the count is increasing by more than 100-150K per week since they accept pretty much everything.

Thanks everyone for the helpful comments. Sounds like Photoshop CC will be a good start, I will also check Streamclip. One reason for Photoshop is that I have a hard time keeping my 5D2 sensor completely clean... So I might need to be able to (batch) remove dust spots in the sky which is not even supported by some of the more expensive tools, but I have already found a tutorial for CS6 explaining how to do this without much effort. Apart from that I think cutting and adjustment layers is enough to get started.

I am planning to add some stock videos to my (so far) image only portfolio. However I am reluctant to buy one of the expensive pro applications in advance because maybe it is not my thing at all. Instead I would like to know if anyone here uses the new video editing functions in PS6 or PS CC to process his material? If they are enough to do some basic cutting and editing (looks like it to me in descriptions and tutorials) for stock videos that would be a good reason to get PS CC (currently CS5). I have no intention on getting the complete CC package which is much more expensive.
