Video Editing Software

Hi Experts!

    I'm curious if someone can recommend an all-in-one video/presentation software package (preferably FREE, but if I have to buy it, I will).  I've been tasked with putting together a photo montage for a 50th wedding anniversary, so it's pretty important.  This software would need to be good, yet be user-friendly too.  Will need to do some editing so that I can add music, fade-in, fade-out, text, ect., ect...  any good recommendations for an all-in-one video editing and presentation software package that offers a lot of bells of whistles, yet is easy to use would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

The high end is Adobe Premiere.
If just for photo montage, I think you can use Microsoft Power Point.
CyberLink PowerDirector

This is best software, you can edit videos, create VM and many more
I would also recommend using Adobe Premiere. It is in no way free, but it is very user friendly and a powerful tool that I have used myself many many times for similar editing jobs.
Try Microsoft's Video Maker http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=34. You can get help on learning the software from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Getting-started-with-Windows-Movie-Maker.

If you are looking at purchasing any software then Adobe Premier is good.
