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 more that we connect to the outside world, the more we seem to disconnect from our own reality...
This is a picture of my 14 year old, facebooking with over 500 friends (60 or 70% of which she most likely doesn't even know) I've got half that amount, and myself don't "know" a large percentage of them, hardly any in fact...amazing and terrifying what the computer has done for kids these days. They get so caught up in the real and some imaginary drama of such a messed up society. What is real becomes deluded, and many lose sight of the THEIR life, and how it is affecting everyone who truly loves them. It just scares me seeing kids soooo caught up in the world so young...it's so foreign to me :/
On the flip-side, the computer has done AMAZING things for youth today. I am inspired daily by the creativity, wit and knowledge of a handful of kids I have been blessed to know for lots and lots of years...and by many, many more...a lot of whom are found here :)
