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.

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the "lilies of the field, how they grow, they toil not, neither do they spin....Matthew 6: 28
Irises in Biblical scriptures
Quote them as lilies of the field.
In photography they are revealed
To open our eyes in pictures.
Purple Irises grew wild
By the old house that burned;
The folk's lost a young child,
But the flowers returned.
They've graced an empty space
With the most tender regard;
Some dug from the home place
Spent many years in our yard.
Tho' my parents are both gone
To join my little brother beyond...
The Wild Irises remain here
Each spring to bring cheer...
Poetry By me, AJP
