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 am deeply disappointed and discouraged by what type of photos are allowed to be uploaded here. There are plenty of websites that are focused on this type of "art", JPG should not be one of them.
It is disheartening to see all these photos that have been popping up on my page. I have not asked to see them. There is no age limit for JPG members and feel some form of restriction should be installed for the underage members and for those that choose not to be exposed to these type of images.
The strength of this site is that it allows all types of photographers to express themselves. I understand freedom of speech, but this is not a form of freedom of speech, this is an aggressive and blatant disregard of what is appropriate.
JPG has affected me in so many positive ways. It breaks my heart that this site is turning into a site that I'm having difficulty respecting and being inspired by.
