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 Friedrich Forssmann, during a reading of "The Conspiracy of the Carpenters" ("Die Verschwörung der Zimmerleute"), a monumental novel by German-Jewish expatriate Hermann Borchardt (1888 - 1951). Published in an abridged English version by Simon & Schuster (New York) in 1943, this novel has been brought only recently to the attention of a German speaking audience. Publishing the 1080 pages tome in a two volume edition was a major effort for publisher Stefan Weidle and his team, Friedrich Forssmann being the typographer in charge. Forssmann has also become the first (and presumably the last) to typeset another major beast of modern German literature: "Zettels Traum", a virtually ineditable monster of 1330 multi-columned pages, written in a very private orthography and punctuation by Arno Schmidt(1914 -1979). Forssmann says it took him essentially five years to do it, although he signed the contract twenty years ago. It turns out he is a gifted entertainer in presenting the works he has so stubbornly worked on as a typesetter and typographer. This picture was taken on Jan. 23, 2011 at the same location as The hardships of being a rock'n roller.
