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).

Here is the 'PS Magic' original for the sake of comparison. Hannah is my grand niece. She was molested (starting at age 4) by her father who is now serving a 27 year prison sentence for that abuse. She is painfully shy and wears the emotional scars of those years. I understand this. I lived it too.
The photo shoots of Hannah are designed to build self-esteem in a non-threatening way. I sent her $100 to buy an outfit for the shoot to give 'her' choices and to help with finding a way in. At first it was very difficult to pull her out of her shell. This is one of the first shots. Looking down is what Hannah does. By the end of it, she was laughing and trying things out without any prompting from me. A success as I see it if every single photo is no more than mediocre in the eyes of everyone... but Hannah.
Sometimes... photos have hidden meanings and a higher purpose.
