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.

[South Rim of the Grand Canyon, Minolta Hi-Matic 11, 35 mm SLR, Kodak slide film]
During our two years in Colorado (1971-73), Linda and I had a chance to visit the Grand Canyon several times. Over the years, we have returned, but now we visit the North Rim, which is more remote and not nearly as crowded.
Citi-Bankâ€™s recent television commercial went â€œviral.â€ The public wanted more information about the video and especially about the song that accompanied the video.
The song is called â€œInto the Wild,â€ and it is performed by â€œLP.â€
When I first heard â€œLP,â€ it brought back memories of Linda Ronstadtâ€™s â€œDistant Drum,â€ which she recorded with the Stone Poneys in 1967. It has been that long since I have heard a voice with the power and range of â€œLP.â€
I am linking the Citi-Bank commercial and two uploads of â€œInto the Wild.â€ In one photo, LP is shown with â€œTCBâ€ and lightning bolts tattooed on her arm. â€œTCBâ€ (â€œTaking Care of Businessâ€) and the lightning bolts were Elvisâ€™ trademarks, so that is another reason to like LP!
Click on the links and enjoy the video and the music. LP is a unique talent.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
[Thank you, Donna, for the spotlight!]
