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.

[Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 1101 Lebanon Road, Nashville, Tennessee, October, 2009]
The Annual Confederate Cemetery Tour will be held on Saturday, October 9, at Nashville’s Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite any member of the JPG Family to attend as my guest. I am the guy selling the tickets, so please identify yourself when you arrive (if I don’t already know you). The offer includes members of your immediate family.
The Cemetery Tour offers a treasure trove of photo opportunities.
It takes about 75 minutes to complete the tour. The first group will begin the tour at 4:30 P.M., with successive groups beginning the tour at 15-minute intervals. The last group will begin the tour at 8:30 P.M. Come early for the best shots, and then get in line with a group whenever you would like to.
Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and a light jacket or sweater. You may wish to carry a flashlight if touring after dark.
I hope to see you there.
I took this photo at last year’s tour. I like this photo because these boys – all in their teens – accurately depict the average Confederate soldier. Their uniforms are correct to a fault. And, they have a look of determination in their faces. The Cemetery Tour features dozens of soldiers and ladies in period costume.
Thank you for the spotlight, BB!
