Nuts and Bolts
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.

This is my dad and most of his collection of more than 300 old school skateboards. He was Canada's skateboard champion in the early seventies and still skates today so its a huge part of his life. The boards span time from the late sixties to the end of the eighties and make up the largest collection of them in Canada. Having gathered this many in just over eight years from garage sales, friends, and the internet, I can only imagine what it will look like another five or ten. The rarest of boards can fetch a high price on E-bay aswell so its not just a cheap hobby.
It's always interesting flipping through them checking out the variety of detailed and interesting graphics to the ones with old scratches telling stories of people in the past.
