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 have spent most of the day today canning and "putting up", vegetables and blackberries. It seems our harvest is all coming in at once. And I am really scrambling to get as much as I can preserved. Yesterday was spent picking everything and preparing jars. I have not canned in 35 years. I did not enjoy it then, and trust me, the work is the same as it was then. There are easier ways to do it now, such as the pressure cooker. I have to admit I am afraid of those. My mom blew the lid off one once, and it sounded like a bomb going off, we cleaned green beans off the ceiling and everywhere else for a week. So, I do it the old fashioned way!
So here is what I got done: 8 quarts of blackberries to the freezer.
2 qts of corn off the cob for frying-freezer
1 qt of butter beans=freezer
6 qts of green beans canned in jars
2 qts of butter beans canned in jars
1 qt of corn canned in jar
6 1/2 qts of tomatoes canned in jars
And I still have corn on the cob that needs cleaning, so it can go in the freezer. Wow, am I ever tired!!!
