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).

Magic Bells kalanchoe is a relative newcomer to the houseplant market. The flowering succulent is a member of the Crassulaceae family, which also includes the jade plant and hens and chickens. Magic Bells has 5-inch glossy green succulent leaves that store water. The flowers are pale green rounded tubes that resemble green grapes. When the bottom of the flower buds open, four small orange petals that look like a lantern emerge. The bloom continues for eight to 12 weeks. The plant is easy to care for and thrives in full sun. When watering, allow the soil to dry and then soak it with room-temperature water; avoid getting the foliage wet. Magic Bells kalanchoe can be seen at the visitors center at the Franklin Park Conservatory.
