To CMS or to Do Something Else

Is a CMS just for publishing websites, or would a web app site want one, too?

I'm a desktop app programmer trying to enter the crazy and befuddling world of web development. I'm making a web app that lets users create cartoons. It would be nice if these cartoons could be shared on the site, kind of like how videos are shared on Youtube or pictures are shared on Flickr.
I don't want to reinvent the wheel for common website features like registration, account management and searching. Is this the kind of thing a CMS is for, or do you just use a framework for that sort of thing? Or some other tool or technology I'm not aware of?
