This is what PicFog (http://picfog.com/) is trying to do. The big question is if they manage to find the right interface for this kind of content. We know even google is struggling with it - look at Wave, it's a nice try, but very-very far from the right interface.

Back in 2004 Google image search failed to update for several months:

Unfortunately, one consequence of having one dominant web search player means that it is rather difficult for competitive vertical searchers to be successful even if they are superior.
