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.

This is a juvenile Peregrine Falcon. Its probably three or four months old in this image and it is still learning the ropes of high speed flight.
Over the mudflats of the Scarborough Marsh where the Jones Creek drains into the Nonesuch and Dunstan Rivers in Pine Point it prosecuted sandpipers, plovers and in this photo, a whimbrel.
The Peregrine Falcon is an endangered species in Maine. It is also the FASTEST ANIMAL ON THE PLANET and some have be clocked at 242 MPH in the "stoop."
In this case, this young and inexperienced Peregrine came in too fast and overshot his target bird. The band on the birds right leg is not indicative of a "local" bird and it is believed this youngster may have come south to Maine from Canada.
