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.

A photo I took of my Grandmother a little while before her portrait with my Grandfather, using natural light.
It's incredible to me, but at 84, she still has almost completely black hair (Yes, that is her natural hair color.).
My father told me that I shouldn't post this photo or show it to my Grandmother, because she doesn't look good or like herself. I disagree, I think he is just used to her looking a certain way, from when he was younger, and is unfamiliar with some of the faces she makes. I think that this is a very typical face she makes. To some it may look like a frown, but to me it looks like the smirk she makes right before she breaks into a smile or a laugh. To me this is a very familiar face that I know and love. Both my sister and I agreed that she looks beautiful, and also very much like herself.
