To kind of paraphrase what the other guys here are saying:
i5 2500k - good for power users on a budget
i7 2600k - good for power users who want the most performance.
The only difference between the two that you should care about is the absence of hyper-threading on the i5 model, but since both CPUs have the "K" in the model name, they can be overclocked freely, so you may find that performance is right where you want it to be.
If it were me, and you're serious about video editing and photoshop, the choice is a no-brainer, get the i7
