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.

Behold I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.. In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump... Corinthians 15: 51-52
Isn't it miraculous how the color of this poinsettia changes simply by using existing light and manual settings as compared to auto and flash that I used in the previous picture.
This plant is a gift that we are giving to our friend Florence, but we are waiting now until Monday which is closer to Christmas to give it to her. ...So in the meanwhile I did some experimenting using manual settings and existing light, while I should be doing my Christmas cards LOL ..I hope I don't wear the poor poinsettia out before we give it away...This is actually more true to the color of the plant than the previous picture which changed in the twinkling of a flash...
