Default Pressing Form

So I'm a little confused on pressing form for overhead press.

The videos I've looked at show the start position for a push press as the top of the clean position with elbows pointing forward.

Military press seems to have the elbows pointing down and arms out to the side a little, not flared, but against the sides and further down.

Is this correct? Messed up my shoulder today with push press, and clearly my form was incorrect - elbows pointing down and arms in front of my body, but I want to be sure I get it right next time.
