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.

The hamburger has become a defining icon of our â€œfast food nationâ€ culture exported throughout the world. It was first made, as the story goes, at Louisâ€™ Lunch in New Haven, CT as a way to use the beef scraps in a sandwich form for the local factory workers in 1895. (Louisâ€™ Lunch is still open for business.)
I have yet to visit a country where I couldnâ€™t find a hamburger and many of them have put their own twist on this American standard. The best hamburger Iâ€™ve ever had was at the Burger Edge in Cowes, a town located on the northern coast of Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia. It was called The Okker and consisted of prime beef, short rindless bacon, free range egg, pineapple, tasty cheese, beetroot, salad, tomato sauce & aioli. I took this pic of my Okker just before I devoured it.
