Coffee with sugar and polka dots
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.

Image taken at a Hong Kong-style cafe, in Singapore. It seems this is how coffee is served in HK, in a tall glass, with the sugar on the side, placed in a small dish normally used for soy sauce and chilli.
It's amazing how coffee has become the universal breakfast drink. For some people, this - minus the sugar and polka dots - is all they need to start the day.
Some need more. I once came acorss a t-shirt with the slogan "Six in the morning" and the illustration shows SIX cups of coffee. LOL!
I have a friend who goes for McDonalds breakfast, with free coffee refills, and drinks five cups. Almost there.
BTW My favourite coffee is currently Legendee, from the Vietnamese company, Trung Nguyen. This is coffee from beans that have been eaten by some kind of civet cat or weasel or whatever, and then passed out in its excrement. It may sound yukky, but is delicious.
The "best" is apparently Kopi Luwak from Indonesia, but the Vietnamese version is cheaper and more readily available.
It costs S$9.50 (approx US$7) for a small cup at Trung Nguyen, but I buy the powder at S$22.50 for 250 grams, enough to make me approx 40 cups at home. I think I will go make myself one now :D
