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 had never eaten a fresh pineapple I bought fresh from the farmer & cut myself.
That's why I got as playful as a kid.
The relatively small pineapple is so sweet and juicy that I could not have it all at one time.
I didn't have a refrigerator in my lodge room so I band-aided it with a shopping bag to it's cut and placed it on the towel hanging bar.
In the humid heat of August monsoonin kerala, a heaven for bacteria, it still lasted a day.
I had to figure out how to peel it. I tried the Ginger peeling technique I learned from a Vietnameese woman but it chopped off parts of the fruit flesh as well. I eventually cut it as they cut Shawarma off a revolving grill.
It costs about Rs.50 (about $1) at a fruit shop or Rs.30 from a farmer selling off his three wheelerApe vehicle on the street margins.
