I am new to making videos from my pictures. I would like to know what is the best format to save the video production in to view it from a flash drive, in a computer and then view the movie on a large slide show screen. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Shannon

No ONE answer. It all depends on the Quality of your source pictures and the Resolution available for playback.

But in no case can you exceed BluRay quality (1920 X 1080).

And of course you should never exceed your Source Quality ;)

... and you should not save; you need to output to a format.

If you will be burning the project to a disc , mpg2 is the format used on a video disc. It will play on your computer also. Check with your flash drive player as to what it will accept.

wmv is more universal for standard definition videos on thumb drives and computers (except Apple)

Thank you for the information. So if the majority of my pictures are coming off of face book, or a phone download at 46kb to 140 kb, what would be the best way to save this video so that it can be played on a laptop and projected onto a large screen. MPG2?

The file size is irrelevant, look at the resolution.
