I have a little project that I will be starting sometime soon.
The application will display image files (rasterized - not windows) of more common types and be able to "script" them so the user makes a selection of the next image by a computer screen displayed UI which gives information on the current image. The choices would be at least two selections related to the current image being shown ( not necessarily past images or selections ), resulting in going to the image selected. (The next image selection will not be displayed with the current image but only a text choice selected.) Obviously the UI would remain displayed from image to image.
I want it to be OS cross-platform, specifically Windows, OS, and Linux but maybe others. The application will be installed as a compiled, executed program.
Can you give me languages which would best handle image files (efficient image loading function) and UI functionality in an application for OS cross-platform?
If you give a short list of languages, then please order them in priority of what you prefer - one, two, three.
Thanks for any help.
