​This has been given appropriate answers already. Thought I'd add a mention of Rush, which has become available since the question was first posted. It is a tool designed for quick video editing and publication to social media channels. Rush projects can be brought into Premiere Pro.

Adobe Premiere Elements , I believe are for beginners who do video editing. Users of this application can make videos really fast even with limited functionalities, while Adobe Premiere Pro offers more editing tools in which users can make more powerful videos.

At my last school - to create an animation, we used cameras called Hue Web Cams with Adobe Premiere Elements on a PC to create Stop Frame Animation which was great. At my new school - we have Adobe Premiere Pro, but I can't see a stop motion option? Can anyone help? Thanks.

Adobe Pro allows you to create professional quality videos. I used Adobe Element for a few years, but Adobe Pro is much more advanced. Yes, there’s a learning curve. But once you understand the features. You will be producing videos Hollywood style.

The elements version is like working with home video, out of the box. Very easy to start with and many things are automated.

The Pro version is like a professional video studio on your computer. Many things you can tweek and many output possibilities.

But with both you can make great movies.

Elements is more of a straightforward streamlined way to premiere. Pro gives you additional layers of control and some really cool things can come out of it.
