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.

Again, this is a repost. This image was entered into the Imagination contest as well. I also thought it would be appropriate to post because it will help explain my other project.
As many of you know, I have had a stalker issue. I have been followed around from site to site for several years now. They have stolen my images, copied them badly, created fake profiles, libeled me and harrassed my contacts both personal and professional. I have made several police reports and the police contacted them, told them to stop, but they kept at it. I then applied for a restraining order and got a judge that had no understanding of the internet or internet bullying or harrassment. I was not given my restraining order since I could not honestly say that I feared for my life. The judge gave the other party a severe chewing out, told them to leave me alone and told me to get a lawyer and sue the other party in civil court. That was an unacceptable approach for me. Laws are being broken and they need to be enforced.
I have since been working hard with our elected officials to have the laws already in place enforced. It is a felony offense and should be treated as one. I am happy to report that progress is being made. I now have contacts with the FBI and our elected officials are getting to know me and my cause. If you are having a problem with this too, please contact me. I can give you the information you need so that you can stand up for yourself. Be sure you write to your elected officials too.
Thank you so much for your support everyone and thank you for the spotlight Susan!!
This image has scored very high and won several contest as well. It is usually entered under the still life theme. I think it does well since it fills the frame. It is composed to pull the eye in.
