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.

Maybe the reason I have just a few things in my pockets stems from growing up with just the necessary. Coming from a relatively poor family, you had a few things and you learned to use them well.
One could make an argument that I carry just a few things because of my inability to deal with too many things at once. Multi-tasking for its own sake is just a waste of oneâ€™s particular talents.
Perhaps I have the fear that if I try to do too many things, I will accomplish none. (I think I do.)
From left to right:
Car key with a key to my house and another to my classroom.
A thin wallet with the capacity to hold only a few cards and some bills.
A Mexican silver coin; fake, I believe.
A cell phone that I hardly use, except to surf the web.
Chapstick, somewhat of a survival tool here in Minnesota â€“ winter sucks.
An old flash drive that is beyond me how it can still work. Itâ€™s gone through several washes, been buried in sand, and stepped on quite a few times.
