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.

This is Mother Leonor, founder of the Saint Dominic Sisters Order. She is 87 years old, too sharp (she holds 4 doctorates, mainly in theology), and agile for any age (she walks a few rocky miles daily to church everyday from her convent in the hills of Mexico City).
My Gf had warned me to behave around Mother Leonor. She is the founder of an entire church order and you don't trifle with such a figure, with such education and experience. Sure enough, I found this sweet lady to be humble, open, honest, friendly and funny. While she was attending to important church matters with the community here in El Paso, she saw me running around the convent grounds chasing rabbits and the other wildlife looking for shots. The twinkle in her eye said she would rather be on the chase with me. Being an outsider to the Catholic world of nuns, I have yet to find one that I don't get along with or who is as severe as the stereotypes out there. Anytime my girlfriend says there is a function or something at the convent, I'm there!
