Simple CC tool to convert a folder of JPEGs to a video?

I have a folder with hundreds of JPEGs that I want to turn into frames of a video.   These were taken with an intervalometer on a Nikon DSLR and they're for a time-lapse video.

 

I've done this many times before using an old Windows 7 PC and Microsoft Movie Maker Live,  which they've discontinud.     It was super easy -  you just pointed it at the folder with the pictures in it, tell it the frame-rate, click the mouse and that was it!

 

So since I have a new fancy high-end PC running Windows 10 and Creative Cloud,  if I'm going to learn a new tool anyway, is there any sweet-and-simple way to do this in Creative Cloud - say Photoshop or Premiere Pro?   I want SIMPLE, like Movie Maker Live, point, click, and enjoy!     That's all.  Once I have video I can do the fancy editing in Premiere Pro.

 

Thanks in advance!

Nor Photoshop nor Premiere Pro are simple programs; steep learning curve.

But there is a way to do this in Premier Pro: Image Sequence.

Make sure the images are sequentual and have a simple name sucht as 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg, 0003.jpg etc.

Select first image, check image sequence an hit OH.

and once you've done as Ann suggests, probably smartest to export as a selfcontained high quality video with the appropriate pixel dimensions using an appropriate codec like prores 422 (HQ) and then bring that back in to premiere for your edits
