Erm, so what languages do you actually know?

i know i have to use algorithms


Isn't that kind of a given? Are there any specifics that need to be catered for?

*Moved to Software Development*

MATLAB is a commonly used language for image analysis. Java has the JAI. Pick a language you are comfortable with and find the tools to do it.

Also, when people with projects of such complexity ask where to begin, it usually means they are setting themselves up to fail.

Java code for image analysis will probably be the easiest to understand, but you'll probably get faster performance with the C++ or C code. Understanding the C/C++ code maybe tougher, though, because authors tend to put in all sorts of optimizations that obscure the core of algorithms being implemented. On the other hand, if you don't need to understand the code, it goes blazingly fast.

if i was to use c/c++ which additional tools would i require?

Google for OpenCV. That might help.
