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).

a FOUR YEAR OLD with a god damn powershot could take a picture of a painting. THIS IS NOT YOUR ART WORK. you dont deserve all the attention you get. just because you favorite other peoples pictures, doesnt make you less of a shitty photographer. the only reason i dont have pictures up is because this isnt a real account. im a jpg member with a different account who is pissed off at all you terrible photographers running jpg. you favorite each other and make it damn near impossible for a GOOD photographer to be noticed. you are ruining the integrity of jpg, and its sickening. you have shit loads of pictures, and i could have taken ANY of them three years ago. btw im in highschool, and i STILL can tell your shitty at this, go post your pictures on flikr, your wasting space here.
Dear Jonathan (You will not tell who you really are so I'll just have to refer to you as Jonathan),
Long before I knew what an SLR camera was I owned a film camera. If you think I'm a dumbass photographer now you should have seen me back in December of 1997 when I shot a roll of film while we were in Cancun. I took the film out and forgot about it then accidently reloaded into the camera thimking it was a new roll of film and went out in April 1998 to shoot some pics of our youngest son before he headed off to the prom. When the film came back all the pics were double exposures and if that wasn't bad enough half a prom shot would show up on a Cancun shot while the other half would show up on another Cancun shot. Talk about dumbass photography.
Anyway, I stitched two together. Our older son (Stress One) appears at the bottom partying in Cancun while our younger son (Stress Two) appears at the top shooting hoops while the girls get ready for the photo shoot.
Unfortunately, I have no plans to leave JPG or stop uploading dumbass pics, but please feel free to comment any time. I think your comments are hilarious.
My offending photo can be found in the link below.
