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.

Old Hokuloa (morning star) Church near the beach in Puako, South Kohala, Big Island, Hawaii. "The Hokuloa Church was erected through the inspiration of Christian faith instilled in Hawaiians by the Rev. Lorenzo Lyons (1807-1886), an American Congregational missionary who came to this island in 1832. The church structure now stands as a tribute to his labors which began in the village of Puako about 1835.
After taking two years to build, the building was dedicated on March 21, 1860. The building served as a house of worship until the termination of the Puako sugar plantation in 1914. Following that date, the landmark fell into disrepair and near ruin until an attempt to restore the Church was undertaken in 1966. In 1990 the building was completely restored and a new congregation was established."
