    I have long tinkeed with the idea of developing software for a couple of specific application but have no idea where to start, what language etc. I thought if I gave you can idea of the application you ma be able to tell me what best to write it in.

    The first application will be web based and it will allow users to upload an image of their own which will become a background against which they will be able to overlay other rotateable, resizeable images. These images would be supplied by us on the site.

    The second is a simple sceensaver that displays a picture of the existing desktop that gets altered by an object that moves around the screen leaving a distored version of the desktop area covered by the path it has travelled in its wake.

    So what do I need here flash, java, C? something else or what would it cost to get someone to create it for me as that might be a better option.

    Visual Studios will get you everything you need. It is expensive, but covers those things. You could do this with VB/.NET or C. If you're not familiar with these languages I recommend taking a class first.

    You can start with Visual Studio, it is very easy to use and tell you what.. "Express Editions can be downloaded for FREE" <http://www.microsoft.com/express/download/>

    Download the express edition you wish to use. I would recommend "C#" (pronounced 'C SHARP')

    Hope it helps.
