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).

After a statewide survey, they chose Crockett,Tx as the school site because of a local Parochial school operated by the Rev.Samuel Fisher Tenney, pastor of the city's First Presbyterian Church. The Rev. Allen's wife, for whom the school was named, was instrumental in raising the organizational funds for the new seminary.
Dr.Byrd R.Smith became the school's first black president in 1924 and initiated a period of growth which included the adoption of new programs and the admission of male students, transferred to the Missionary General Baptist Convention of Texas in 1944. Mary Allen College became a 4-year liberal arts institution. In 1972, plagued by a series of legal and financial setbacks, the school was closed.
In 2008, this is what it looks like....
but, there was a sign on the front of the building that read, "Future Home of Mary Allen Museum Cultural and Educational Center.
