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).

Forget what you see in front of you for the moment. As if all the images of perfect all around us think that everything is perfect; the perfect job, the perfect life, the perfect body, the perfect people. What is perfect these days anyways? For all you care, the perfect shit comes from your ass. Come to think about it, shit comes out of peopleâ€™s mouths, what you see on TV, what the media tells you or what the government wants you to believe is really what is happening around the world. If anyone had a perfect head on their shoulder, this world would not be so messed up in the first place, war would not happen and hate would never be born and the world would be, for the lack of a better word, just perfect. We are not so blind to what is really going on. The media tells us, â€œPut this cream on you face and youâ€™ll look 10 times youngerâ€ but they are really telling you â€œDamn, youâ€™re very old and ugly. You! Yes you, the people, need this shitâ€. So what, that does not seem too bad, right? It only has to deal with whoever buys into that anyways. You can choose not to listen to the manipulation of the media. It is not like any government is any better. They want us to believe what is shown on TV and read in the newspapers. They probably give you 30% truths and 70% bullshit or hidden truths. When will the world ever learn that perfect is impossible? But I guess without hate there would be no love; without sadness there would be no happiness; without war there would be no peace. I guess we need a balance of two things but we choose to do what is better for this world. We are the people of tomorrow. Perfect can never happen; we need to realize that to make this world better place.
