If so, I'd just use iMovie. IT is easy to get the hang of, and handles photos, music, and movies extremely well. The interface is very intuitive. If not a Mac, then you'll most likely want to go with Flash, which can be a real hassle to a new user. As for size, if you are using a projector, it will just project what ever size you choose in your document onto the screen/wall. I generally like to go with a wide format, sorta' like a wide-formatted DVD - 4:3 or 16:9 I think it is? IT's been a while.
