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.

Today is certainly my day for dedications it seems.Remembering my foto-journalism days at university. After finally having recuperated access to some of my past archives by recovering a hard drive, I came across something last night that I started working on quite a while back. Re-photographing my own contact sheets & creating new old works. I also feel like testing the waters at JPG mag to see if taking photos of ones own archives falls within the parameters of being usable images according to the rules on JPG
I tend not to use photoshop, to much wasted time. I always upload to iPhoto & use the adjustments settings, as if it where a colour enlarger, like in the days of the darkroom processing colour prints.
So, if that is considered too digitally modified then I am afraid a colour photograph stripped of all its colour is also to be considered too digitally modified, NO? I teak my contrast, colours and exposure not unlike a print to be produced for an exhibition. This simply said I think that I abide by the JPG rules. Now, this may be a case of personal printing (styles) techniques & how I photograph my images. I believe this image falls within all respects of the rules.
NOW, U be the judge?
