Creating videos is a great way to promote your business or just preserve a special moment. But video editing software can be hard to use. Plus, a lot of the top programs are pretty expensive.

I've found a fun and easy way for you to edit videos that won't hurt your wallet. It doesn't have the same level of features that some of the more complicated programs do, but it is still packed with useful options to help you make a great video.

There are some pretty great video editing options out there for iPhone or iPad, too. Find out which one I recommend.

Animoto lets you merge clips and photos together to make a unique video. There are also plenty of predesigned styles and helpers to make your video look great! You can also add animated text to give your project some visual narration or just to caption a photo.

Do you store your photos online? That's fine. Animoto can import them from plenty of other sites like Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Photobucket, Picasa or SmugMug. If you want a soundtrack, the site also has over a thousand songs you can choose from.

This is a great tool if you need a simple program to create a video for your business, wedding, birthday party or another special event. Once you're done with your project, Animoto saves it to the cloud to make it easy to share across the Web. You can access and edit your videos from your computer or a mobile gadget while you're out and about.

Animoto offers a free account that lets you make 30 second videos using a few of its styles and about 300 songs. If you upgrade to a Plus account, you can make 10 minute videos with 55 styles and 300 songs for $5 a month.

For more serious users, the site has a Pro account. For $39 a month, you can create 20 minute high-definition videos. You can even access over 2,000 songs and download your videos to your computer if you want. Animoto also offers business options starting at $249 a year.
