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.

I quit smoking December 1st, 2009. It has been one month and one day. In my opinion, it was not as hard as everyone makes it out to seem, at least for me. It is not harder than quitting heroin as often said. You really need to just decide you aren't going to smoke anymore and be done with it. I smoked from 10-28-1998 to 12-01-09 and quit without any side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and very little cravings.
I guess because I started for one of the most asinine reasons (looking back) doing a complete 360 from when I was a hardcore anti-smoking fucking poster girl in highschool - it just seemed right to quit. I am again, that anti-smoking advocate blasting smokers with my speech and constant belittling.. which helps me both stay not smoking, and hopefully pressuring others to evaluate their situation.
I am very happy, and proud that I did, even though it seems more of an accomplishment towards other people than myself. This is an ode to being a non smoker again. SlÃ¡inte.
