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.

During a holiday in Tuscany I was walking in the center of a small town and I met Maria. A special woman. I greet her and she tells me his life.
She was born in 1926 and is the mother of 8 children, now a widow living alone, her children, now married, live in other cities.
She was taking water from a fountain in the street, as people did long time ago, to wash the floor of her house.
A life lived with so much suffering, so many sacrifices, but the strength of her attitude helped her to become a strong woman, full of life and proud of her family.
I asked if I could take a picture and she said: Yes! I'm happy for that!
This photo has a special memory, for me it is the best photo I've taken.
Her eyes, her face marked by wrinkles make understand what it means to be a woman of another time.
Durante una vacanza in Toscana stavo camminando nel centro di un piccolo paese e ho incontrato Maria. Una donna speciale. La saluto e lei mi racconta tutta la sua vita.
Nata nel 1926 e madre di 8 figli, ormai vedova vive da sola, i suoi figli sposati vivono in altre città. Stava prendendo l'acqua alla fontana nella strada, come si faceva una volta, per lavare il pavimento di casa.
Una vita vissuta con tante sofferenze, tanti sacrifici ma la forza del suo carattere l'hanno aiutata a diventare una donna forte, piena di vita e fiera della sua famiglia.
Le ho chiesto se potevo scattarle una foto e lei mi rispose: Certo!! Ne sono felice!!
Questa foto è un ricordo molto speciale per me, la foto più bella che io abbia mai scattato.
Il suo sguardo, il suo volto segnato dalle rughe fanno capire cosa significa essere una donna di altri tempi.
