Gift bag with Lord Venkateshwar of Tirupati Temple from Sri Sudarshana Veda center
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.

I got this beautiful bag as I left. The images of Lord Venkateshwara of Tirupati Temple in Andhra Pradesh. Usually promotional bags of this quality when given away at conventions are faded and lean on color, but with the richness of Hindu culture there's no way to cut corners and the result is much more vivid then this mobile phone photo I took.
It contained a laminated card of lord and goddess avatars, a sealed bag ith 'Namkin' (salty snacks such as turmeric puffed rice, roasted nuts and dhanya leafs), a ladu (sweet deep fried garbanzo bean flour ball) and vermilion powder for the tikkha ( the dot marked on the forehead center)
