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 took a little side trip today while traveling down to a museum in southern Michigan to have a photo of mine hang in it for a few months. I always pass this barn and sign (4th year that I have had one of my photos hang in their museum) and have always wanted to take a picture of it. So while traveling southbound, I figured out what roads I needed to take when I came back (northbound) after I dropped off my package. The side road is pretty busy with no place to pull off in the winter. I waited in a nearby driveway until the northbound lane was clear, drove to the barn. I double-checked my rearview mirrors - no cars - jumped out and took a number of shots. My wife kept her eye on the traffic (to make sure I did not get hit) until I was done (about 2 minutes), then I jumped back into the car and drove off.
