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.

Today I went shopping again. I finally got my glasses fixed (remember my trip to the ER a couple weeks ago, where I lost a lens? Yeah, finally got them replaced!), I tried on (but didn't end up buying any) more dresses. I did buy a really pretty headband accented with a peacock feather. At the same time I bought this peacock inspired pendant as well, and though it was very fitting.
As I talked to a friend about my jaunty new headband, I said something along the lines of how much I was really starting to like that my closet was starting to actually have some STYLE, which it's never really had before. I always hid in my clothes before... bag shirts, shapeless jeans, comfy shoes. I liked color, and although I tend to gravitate to blues and greens-- I do have bright springy colors that I wear now and then. But stylish is not really a word I would have used to describe my wardrobe in the past.
I still have a long way to go (as I do in so many things), but with 3 cute dresses to my name, a stylish embellished headband, some cute summery wedge sandals, an infusion of new colors and cuts.... I'm starting to feel like I can actually be SEEN for once.
And I'm ok with that.
Ok, I'm mostly ok with that. I won't lie. I still have moments (a lot of them) when I just... hear those old thoughts. But I have ammunition now. Because I know those old voices are wrong.
I have a laundry list of things about myself that I love, that I appreciate. And yes, my newly discovered "style" is among them. What's not to love?
