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 was at the Malcolm X Center in Omaha Nebraska waiting with a fellow occupier on a cat named Leo to open the center up for a meeting of community figures and leaders concerning an on-going Town Hall Meeting having to do with violence and police misconduct etc.
In attendance were a few attorneys, a professor or two, several educators and various individuals who were active within the community, specifically in North Omaha where the Malcolm X Center is located.
A well known and respected educator pulled up in his mid size sedan and got out and cheerfully invited us to come observe the apparent bullet hole in the right front fender.
Considering the angle of the trajectory etc, it is indeed an odd looking hole with no round shape whatsoever. I inspected the wheel well area and found no exit hole or damage but a plastic liner was in place obscuring the resulting damage and I was disappointed we could not locate and remove the unknown slug if indeed that is what caused the long gouge shaped hole. Jack does live in North Omaha in perhaps a not so good of an area where bullets do indeed fly on the average of a few times a week.
The town hall meeting was designed to be organic in bring together people of all races and socio-economic backgrounds to address issues brought up in the Town Hall meeting through healthy debate and dialog and how to move forward with actions that produce positive results.
Too often a lock of opportunity, leadership, direction, and economic policies inflict negative situations and elements upon the citizenry and they are left with no voice or hope that they can themselves do anything or ferment change. We who plan the Town Hall meeting hope to address the issues, quit talking about them so much and start talking about solutions and how to obtain favorable results.
No More Bullet Holes...
