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.

These are a group of summer campers to whom I taught a collage making lesson at a local art center. We first viewed and discussed works by artists Joyce Neimanas and David Hockney. Then I created the "Honey, I'm Home!" collage on this site for the students to see the process. Then with Funsaver cameras, they took photos of pieces of each other according to a list I gave them to follow. I then raced to Walgreens (the only place that still does 1 hour developing in our city) to get the film developed. When we got our pictures back, it took little explanation and the students were immersed in the process which was fun to watch and photograph. They were quite proud of their cut and pasted pieces which will hang in an exhibit at the City Auditorium at the end of July. Every day for a week a different artist came and taught them lessons in everyting from water color painting to culinary art to pottery to music and finally the photography collage. I'd say they were lucky kids to have such influences so young! :D
