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.

Linda and I were married on June 26, 1971 in Jackson, Tennessee. It hardly seems possible. That was so long ago, yet it seems like yesterday.
I think back to that magical weekend, and all of the people that were there, so many of them no longer here. I think of my late father, then only 48, and how proud I was to have him stand up as my “best man.” My mother, only 46, never looked prettier.
Linda had just graduated from Vanderbilt University and I was already in the army, stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. We were excited about beginning our new life in Colorado, as it meant living far enough from our parents without being too far . . . and living in wonderland. Linda and I would spend the next two years enjoying Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. What an opportunity!
Linda is standing next to some wedding presents the day before our wedding. We drove across I-70 to our new home in Colorado. (This might be the only sign in America not riddled by bullet holes.) We arrived in Colorado Springs at the little duplex I had rented, and had dinner that first night on a card table I borrowed from next door. Fried chicken, broccoli, applesauce and grape soda rounded out the bill of fare. That summer, we visited Rocky Mountain National Park and took the highway to Cripple Creek, Colorado. We were on the road every weekend. We were only 22, and we made the most of it.
Those were memorable times, and I had the privilege of sharing them with the love of my life.
Thank you for stopping by!
