JPG MEET-UP WITH MARY BROWN (For the JPG Staff)
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.

[August 11, 2010, Arizona Biltmore, Scottsdale, Arizona]
I â€œmetâ€ Mary at JPG a year ago. She uploaded a shot of Italyâ€™s Amalfi Coast that I liked very much, and I told her so in the â€œcommentâ€ section under her photo. She returned the favor, and soon after that we were JPG â€œcontacts.â€ Since that time, we have stayed in touch through JPG.
When I wrote Mary a month ago that I might be in the Phoenix area in August, we made arrangements to meet, and we decided to meet at Frank Lloyd Wrightâ€™s architectural masterpiece, the Arizona Biltmore. I had stayed there several times on business trips and it was just a few minutes from Maryâ€™s home, so it was the ideal location.
We met this morning and spent two hours enjoying a cold drink, great conversation, and photography. (Mary shoots with a very impressive looking Nikon!) We had a wonderful time.
Thank you, Mary!
I have linked Maryâ€™s page. Please have a look. Mary has been traveling for a month, but she promises to get active again this week. I am also linking a page to the Arizona Biltmore, if you have an interest. It is quite a resort.
I have met some wonderful folks at JPG.
(My thanks also to the JPG staff for the great site and for encouraging the JPG meet-ups!)
