Dipstick in Search of Oilâ€™s Digital Happy Holiday Card
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.

OK, OK, OK, while sitting in front of my iBook screen with Photo Booth on, holding my iPad 2, and clicking a photo I got this idiotic idea to send the photo to Picnik to add some Holiday highlights in a foolish effort to create a Happy Holiday Card worthy of my favorite line from Tropic Thunder: â€œI know who I am. Iâ€™m a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.â€
I know what youâ€™re thinkingâ€¦Heâ€™s sending out a Happy Holiday card before Thanksgiving? How gaucheâ€¦but honestâ€¦itâ€™s not my faultâ€¦blame it on JPGâ€¦after all, theyâ€™re the ones that placed the Communication photo challenge before Thanksgiving Day instead of before Christmas Day.
Some of my favorite quotes for the Holidaysâ€¦
"An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day." Irv Kupcinet
"I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land." John Stewart
â€œOne of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly." Andy Rooney
â€œThe main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.â€ George Carlin
â€œLet's be naughty and save Santa the trip.â€ Gary Allen
"Christmas and the New Year are actually two holidays. So there is a plural, which in the English language, necessitates the use of 's.' I suppose you could say 'Merry Christmas' and 'Happy New Year,' but you probably have shit to do." Jon Stewart, on Bill O'Reilly's objection to "Happy Holidays"
