One of the more gratifying elements of video editing is the ability to add effects to video clips, altering the appearance of them, which enhances, adds excitement, or a vibrant new look to images. There is a lot to effects technique and Premiere Pro, so start with simple effects (dissolves, opacity changes, color effects) and work your way into the more advanced effects, where more than one effect is combined for a wholly new look. You can also create titles and motion graphics effects from scratch using the Essential Graphics panel. You can also find preset templates to use there, as well.

Above all, the Adobe video effects universe is vast and there is much to learn. Try not to get too overwhelmed by trying to learn it all at once. You can almost think of Premiere Pro effects as and wholly separate application within Premiere Pro, especially with the addition of the Essential Graphics panel several versions ago. If you are new to effects, the best advice I can give you is to start with the basics and to understand the underlying concepts of how things work. A study of basic animation terms and practices can help a lot.
