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).

That is the full name of my late dog Corey. It means "Lamb of our hearts," and she truly was. I raised her from when I was 9 and she was practically a newborn. She was always a ball of wonderment and energy. I remember, that until the very end, when I was walking her, people would look awestruck when I told them she wasn't a puppy. To them, there was no way that such a lively, fast, and enthusiastic dog, could be over 10.
When she was a puppy, it was my responsibility to train her and make sure she was well behaved. At the time, it was the largest responsibility I had ever had. After lots of time, hard work and rough housing, Corey became an extremely well behaved and loving creature, without losing any of her spunk. In her entire life, I don't think I met anyone who did not like her, or was not completely comfortable around her (including people that were afraid of dogs). She had a very calming way about her.
She never, ever barked. Except on command -- one of her tricks was barking when told to -- she barked once in my presence.
I have spent the majority of my life with this dog, growing together. She was one of the most interesting, crazy, beautiful, and wonderful beings I have every had the great fortune of knowing. Every day was a wonder with her as she developed a truly unique personality.
We had to put her down a few months ago. This was taken the day before we had to say goodbye. She had a great and beautiful life. I never really love my own photos, I don't know why, but after looking at this one for what feels like hours I can finally say that I have a photo I took that I love. I love this photo for everything it entails. I think this captures how happy she was and how much she meant to me.
I sent this in an email to my immediate family and my sister responded, "That is without a doubt the best picture of Cory in existence (and there have been many pictures). You captured her personality, too." I know that I will never have another dog like her again, but in this photo I can gain comfort and a little heartache in remembering just how she was.
(Sorry if that was long winded, but it felt good to write, and if you have gotten to the end I thank you for reading my ramblings.)
