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.

In nazi-era Germany specialized "scientists" and "doctors" tried to fathom scientifically who belonged to the master race and who didn't. True science would have quickly revealed the corruption of this concept, but said thugs in medical attire just made up criteria from thin air and forced them on anybody under their thumb. They did so for instance by creating busts like this one from members of the populace at large, only to classify them according to their delusions. This piece for instance had them think the lady depicted was of profoundly "nordic" origin. Unbeknownst to them she was Jewish.
The bust can be seen at the Hällisch-Fränkische Museum in Schwäbisch Hall/Germany. Schwäbisch Hall, a town of approx. 30.000 in the German state of Baden-Württemberg is home to a remarkable museum about its history - going all the way from the stone age to the very present. Definitely worth a visit.
