API - allows customized UI (fall back on existing ui) Submission/image management tools Tools for slideshows, various image sizes, etc. Groups business logic tags/machine tags Copyright facilities (Creative Commons Licenses) Network effects/social web/web 2.0 community comments tagging web scale We can drop out of the process if needed
