If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

I feel so lucky at times to be able to meet the very interesting people roaming the streets of Long Beach.
I was on my bike sitting on one of my favorite corners to shoot when I met this gentleman.
I didn't get a chance to get his name as our transaction was very brief, but all I know is, he moved VERY slowly, smelled like a Brewery, and spoke like Wolfman-Jack.
He asked me for a little bit of change, and I counter-offered him a dollar for a quick shot, and a short story, but because of his intoxication, all I got was this quick pose, and an additional request for $5 for Beer Money for 'me and my friends'....
I don't drink, so I try not to fund it. The dollar I gave him was for his time, and for me to take a clean shot. His choice to use it for Beer is exactly that, but I will not give more than $1, unless it's genuinely for food.
