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.

Years ago with my 3 megapixel Canon, I photographed a startlingly beautiful “micromoth”, I had never seen. It flew low in the Spanish Needles (Bidens alba) seeking cover under leaves when not nectaring in the lower flowers. It is very shy and rarely seen.
I sent the photo to Dr. James Adams, Professor of Biology at Dalton State College in GA), who has a passion for lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) who graciously published it on his site.
It’s been a pretty good season here for butterflies and moths – not great as in other years past, but good. I saw a Florella in the Spanish Needles outside my fence, and yesterday, took a walk with my camera, just in case.
I got lucky and it was a complete surprise. 10:30 a.m., in an overcast, slight breeze on the roadside, in a low growing patch of Spanish Needles which has been ruthlessly mowed (the reason they aren’t high) by the county, I found some micromoths. Like their bigger cousins, they are mostly drab but then a Florella erupted in a burst of bright color. I watched and stalked and waited, and finally after a half hour, that one Florella became used to my presence and here is one of the best shots. And isn’t it beautiful?
