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).

Yesterday I bought my first stamps for this time around in India. It reminded me of my last stay here.
That day, early February 2008, I glued Rs. 2500 (about $60) worth of stamps on a Doti in the shape of the Indian map. The Doti is the south Indian male wrap around 'skirt'. I bought it for the purpose of wrapping a parcel to be shipped to Israel. Indian post office regulations, or just the mandatory tradition, requires every parcel shipped (abroad?) to be fully wrapped and stitches in fabric. Then every spot where stitches begin/end/cross has to be sealed with molten wax !
Later, back in the USA, this beautiful quilt served me to cover items left in my parked car.
Some of the stamps, like the set of 4 flower stamps on the upper left and the white sheets with the brown woodcarving on both the right and left have a scent of their featured picture: flowers and sandal wood.
