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.

An outtake from last years 365 Days series.
One of the minor problems with JPG is that they don't have a way that you can create large sets of pictures on your page so I had to leave the 365 photos I did in this series on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ride0583/sets/72157612149124983/
As you can see I can't be bothered getting a shot right. I should have faced the other way in our guest bedroom and used a black screen behind me, but I wasn't about to put that much effort into my daily SPs.
