        Hmmm,  might be cool to have the ability to at least provide
all the info in <a href="http://purl.org/dc/">Dublin Core</a> or
similar metadata standards. 

        Some way to make use of EXIF style data may be cool too, as
I suspect a fair amount of online submissions may be coming from
digital cameras.

        hmm, yes?

        oooh, that would be neat.

        I would suggest a set of required key words, and then for the rest,
anything goes. Required stuff could be like "color/bw",
"portrait/landscape/whatever", "scanned/digicam", "natural light/flash",
"still photo/time lapse/multiexposure", "people/nopeople", etc.

Silly feature requests:

        wavelet based "these images are sorta the same" categorization

        since its a directory of images, perhaps exporting it via
        some standard directory system (like say LDAP...), with approriate
        schema of course.
