Mr Laropi and Loobyloo
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.

I have uploaded this before a long time ago, but for some reason it has disappeared from my uploaded photos.
Loobyloo (the cat) was a rescue kitten, and Mr Laropi was a three legged piglet I bought for $10 from some local people in a village in Adjumani District. I felt so sorry for him because he only had three legs.
After living with our other animals for a while and mixing with our dogs, he thought he was a dog and would run like crazy around the garden making a funny noise that sounded like he was barking. He would also pinch the dogs' bones whenever he had a chance!
These two formed an unusal bond and would often be found snuggled up together on the back step.
Loobyloo is now a beautiful grown up cat. Mr Laropi went to pig heaven...
