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).

Over the next couple of weeks Iâ€™m going to post pics representing what I call my Life Floats, all that I hold onto when the sea of life suddenly goes from calm to stormy. Like most of you, Fred and I have experienced that more than once. Yep, weâ€™re going through a major life altering time right now. I continue to trust weâ€™ll get through this.
Again I thank my JPG friends for their continuing thoughts and prayers.
Recently a dear JPG friend reminded me of the importance of breathing and relaxing, especially during challenging times.
I did both when I captured this scene at Dallasâ€™s historic Lakeside Park and thought of my first major float: faith. For me trees and a beautiful body of water are like God hugs.
