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.

That's Alfred working with Tiang at a small private group photo shoot in an abandoned warehouse in Brooklyn,NY. We had 3 photographers, 6 models, 2 hair stylists / MUA & 1 assistant.
Many people have told me that she looks like she should be sitting on a toilet (LMAO), but that doesn't really matter, because this shot isn't about beauty.
To me, it illustrates some of the very strange positions we find ourselves in as models & photographers, when we are so focused and consumed by the work at hand ... leaving ourselves and the outside world behind.
However skilled the model or photographer might be, a deep rapport and very intimate connection between them is required to move the results past the glamor and into the emotion of the shot. Sustaining this connection can be both exhausting and exhilarating; and definitely addictive!
Alfred is a photographer whose work & approach I respect very much.
