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 to celebrate the lives of two of the most important persons in my life. My Mum (left of image) aged 94 and my Aunty Marg, aged 92; have been best friends since they were born in a small rural town of Watchem in Victoria, Australia, a small town of 500 people. Sadly, Aunty Marg recently passed away only three months after my Brother suddenly passed away from Prostrate Cancer.
Naturally, my Mum is devested by the loss of her Son and her best Friend. Mum will carry this sadness and loss until she passes on herself. Fortunately, Mum is still reasonably active in the mind and body but hurts within! I am now Mumâ€™s full-time Carer and I have noticed a sharp decline in her health but I will not allow her to leave her home for a nursing facility until I can no longer cope with her needs.
Mum and Margaretâ€™s lives were united in such a loving bond rarely seen these days, which is admired by all our relatives and everyone that knows them.
Up until Aunty Margâ€™s passing, these two well educated â€“ former teachers would text each other 2- 3 times a day, which is unique within itself. Although they lived some 300kms away for many years they would compete against each other on TV quiz shows via landline phones. They would chat about the good old times and laugh until they cried. It is indeed sad to see Mum recharging her mobile (Cell Phone) which was only used between the two of them â€“ except when I go away for a break!
I am fortunate Mum is still with us and telling stories of her teenage years, her education and the fact that she lost 2 brothers and 3 Uncles in both World Wars. Margaret was always there for Mum and vice-versa to give each other support and comfort during the difficult years they faced way back in the early - mid 1900s.
May God Bless them both on a remarkable story of lifeâ€™s Journey!
