My Favorite Game Was Playing Chicken!
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.

Well, I never actually had a Big Wheel... I kept trying to convince my folks but my mom's arguement was always, "you'll outgrow it too fast". I think the real reason was b/c there were so many kids w/ those things on our block and it drove her nuts! You knew it was after school or cartoons were over on Saturday mornings when you heard the clicking of those Big Wheels outside! I had to settle for using whoever who let me ride theirs. I lived on a long hill in NYC. Kids used to race 'em, but my favorite game was playing chicken! Kids would stand down at the bottom of the hill and jump outta the way before they got creamed! But what I hated is when kids would do this to unwilling targets! They would pick someone out (and 3 times this happened to me, once right in front of my mom!) and mow them down! This, unfortunately sealed the deal of me never owning one of these beauties. But this is something I definitely miss seeing... 20 neighborhood kids on their Big Wheels!
