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 Grand Republic of Sodus
The Grand Republic of Sodus was to be a small territory landlocked by the U.S. state of Michigan on all sides. Not much is heard of Sodus these days after it was denied foreign aid by the U.S. and a proposal to impose a departure tax on those traveling though was turned down. The flag seems to be all that still proclaims the memory of Sodus. The Sodus Bottling Co. is long gone. Most people don't even recall it's famous advertising slogan. The soda sign is extremely rare. The local saying was Sodus was what you drink when you have had an Eau Claire for breakfast. (Eau Claire being a village nearby) The Sodus Fruit Exchange was a very active business, as was Frank Deaner & Son. And I am sure history books somewhere tell the story of how Nancy Thompson (Ackwright) came to make the first Sodus flag, of the fruits and vegetables shipped in Deaner baskets and crates, of the popularity of the Sodus Cola, and the Hey Day of the Sodus Fruit Exchange.
