Images get resized when inserted into Powerpoint 2003

I'm working on a picture slideshow in powerpoint 2003. I have a ton of .jpg images. Some scanned in and some taken with digital cameras. I created some master slides that I use as backgrounds.  I resize all the pictures to  specific  sizes in Photoshop.

a crazy thing is happening when I bring the resized images into my Powerpoint presentation. Some of the images (seems to only happen with the digital ones taken with the cameras) get resized to a smaller size) I've looked at the dimensions of the pictures and even pulled them back into Photoshop to make sure I didn't save them incorrectly. The dimensions are correct. (e.g. I resize a very large image down to 3.75 width - the height is proportionally resized. I set the resolution to 100. When I pull the image into Powerpoint, the image size is 1.63 width with a proportional height) I did a little test, and found that if I save these images as .png files, the correct size is maintained. I'd re-do the whole thing with .pngs but the sizes are larger. I've only done about 50 pics so far, and I have over 200 pics to display. I'm afraid the overall  increase in size of my presentaion will cause it to run slow or crash.. Does anyone know what's causing this? If not, does anyone have any input on whether or not the .png format will cause a problem in  a project such as this with so many images? I only have a short time left to get this done, so any help would be very much appreciated!
