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.

Last summer after Ashlyn (my three-year-old granddaughter) watered one of my pots of moss roses, she asked if she could have one of the hot pink flowers. After I picked one for her, I playfully tucked the stem of the tiny moss rose behind her ear and called her my beautiful flower child. Ashlyn giggled and then wanted to check out how she looked. She beamed when she saw the flower in her hair; said she wanted to keep it there forever, though it had already wilted badly. I told her the moss rose would get very sad if it had to be away from the other flowers for long, but that I could take pictures of how it looks in her hair, and she could have them forever. She was all for that. This is one of the shots I took before we put the dying flower back with the other moss roses.
