I, and probably many other photographers, would like to create a Chrome extension that would offer a right-click context menu for images that allows us to:

* Send Image to Application1 (e.g. a photo viewer)
* Send Image to Application2 (e.g. a EXIF viewer)
* Send Image to Application3 (e.g. a photo editor)

It seems that DEV versions of Chrome support chrome.contextMenus.create() and this can be used to create the menu. However, I have no idea how to launch the selected application and load the image. Furthermore I fear this may require compiled code and that's probably beyond me at the moment.

Can anyone help with this?
