A lot has been written about the interface and even more has been written and read into the text ADs that are put up. My opinion about this is simple but one which doesn't apply to many people - For sensitive stuff, my email is sent/received in encrypted format using GnuPG.
Another factor that awes people (IMHO) is the exclusivity factor:
One can't get an account by simply going to the website, you needed to be invited into the coterie of privileged users with GMail accounts. Of course, sites like isnoop.net put paid to that. And now everyone and their grandmother have GMail accounts and over 50 invites to give away. It isn't just the service that counts now-a-days, it's the general user's perception of the user that counts.

Besides, what really wins it for me about Gmail is their conversation thread view. A must-have feature if you do a lot of email convos. And then there's their email search function.
Gamerchick, Gmail doesn't serve as an image host, per se. Rather, Gmail integrates with Google's Picasa image organizer/picture sharing/image-editing software. I'm not quite certain on the details as I don't use it myself, but I get the impression that your Gmail acount also doubles as a Picasa account.

Anyway, I'm pretty satisfied with Gmail just the way it is, but I certainly won't turn down any tweaks. I hope that website (or one just like it) comes around again.
Oh! And I almost forgot... I also have quite a few Gmail invites to give away. Just drop me line if you're interested. =^^=
