The Last Easter
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 what becomes of a holiday. Easter should be a day for hope; a time to renew our faith in God and search our hearts for forgiveness and healing. Sadly, it has become yet another time for greed and commercialism. Another holiday that has the masses out purchasing gifts for one another and their families, a day when children hunt eggs and baskets rather than hearing the story of the true meaning of the holiday. Nobody will read the Easter card from Grandma; it will be opened, the money will be taken out, and it will share the same fate as the card she sent at Christmas. Believing a giant bunny brought you a basket of goodies while you were sleeping is more popular than the idea of a God that is alive in us all and brings comfort and true joy to billions of people each day. People are sarcastic about religion, people live, die, and kill in the name of it. Why is commercialism not persecuted in the same fasion as the Faith so many of us do truly hold dear and sacred? Humanity is failing.
