A flash image alone will not work well in google. It is highly content dependent. Add a paragraph of text below the flash image so the spider has something to eat. You will also need to have some links to pages in your site. Links from inside the flash object will not be followed.

Do something like this: http://www.mvcomputers.com

Size of the flash images only depends on how long you want your visitiors to wait. Maybe include a link to skip to the next page. Also keep in mind that if the user is on a dialup connection and doesn't have the flash plugin they get a pop asking them to download the plugin...this will take more time...or maybe scare them away.

Dump you temp internet files (cache) and delete the flash plugin from the Downloaded Program Files folder then load you page and you'll get the full experience. Don't forget good titles and meta tags.

as of now, SE's cannot track a flash movie for their ranking systems.
phaugh has the right idea though. Using real text and meta tags are
really the only way.

here's a bit more as it was discussed earlier --
