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.

This is a view of the manmade canal that connects the springs to the Crystal River. It was dug by developers in the 1970s. Before that time, the springs were landlocked, and the manatees had no way to enter.
A developer who bought the 57 acres of land surrounding the springs and a small nearby lake was planning 36 single homesites and two large condominiums. Fortunately, the collapsing housing market put his plans on the back burner.
Several concerned citizens who were against building in this ecologically sensitive area met to discuss what should be done to stop the develpment. They decided that they would try to buy it from the developers. After some negotiations, the developer, who saw the wisdom of conserving this unspoiled and pristine place, offered it up at a reasonable price.
