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).

Will Rogers was the most famous man in America in the 1930s. Cowboy, rope trick artist, comic, movie star. But he was infatuated with flying. Before passenger flights were available, he went to the post office and paid postage for his weight so he could fly on airmail planes. Howard Hughes used to land at the polo field on his ranch near Santa Monica when he was courting Rogers' daughter. Aviation pioneer Wiley Post and Rogers planned a round-the world flight in 1935, but died in an accident in Alaska early in the trip.
This globe, marked by Rogers with the projected flight route still sits in his office at the ranch. It's now a park and you can go see it yourself.
It's a real piece of American history!
