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).

Yesterday I captured this addition to my Italian people photo essay in the popular Lazio lakeside village of Trevignano Romano. During the warmer months, Romans flock to this charming village, which is about 30 miles north of Rome and about ten minutes from where we live in Monterosi. Shortly before I captured this little guy trying to clean off his feet, while his mom chatted in Italian on her cell phone, he had fun down at the beach feeding the swans. Fred had taken a piece of bread from our lunch at a lakeside café to feed the swans. While he tossed the first piece of the bread slice to a swan, I told Fred there was an adorable little red-headed Italian boy behind him who obviously would love to feed the swan. Of course Fred couldn’t resist giving the child the rest of the bread to do just that. He had great fun watching this little boy get such a big kick over tossing bits of bread into the lake and seeing the swan gobble it up.
