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.

Over four nights - with 32 kids in two quaterfinals, 20 in the semi-finals and 10 in the grand finals - I took about 1,800 images.
It might seem a lot, but not really when you consider the number of performers, including both the contestants and the guest artistes.
From that tremendous selection of images, I deleted more than a thousand. And of the remaining 700, this is my absolute favourite.
The boy is, if I remember correctly, 14 years old – although he looks quite adult here – and he competed with a partner in the Ballroom category.
My artist and musician friend David, who is very astute in his observation, commented that he is a natural talent and that “all his poses are perfect”.
David is right. When I looked through my photos of the boy’s dance sequence, it was like a series of perfect model poses, starting with this opening pose.
