Family Self-Portrait With Our Newest Member: Everyone, Meet David.
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 am so tired of hearing stories about people being mean these days. We went and hung out at the train station because...well, why wouldn't we? This distinguished bohemian gentleman, David, began chatting with us, and I invited him to join us for a family picture. He did so, as you can see above, and we parted ways with giant smiles and good feelings.
Yes, there are bad people out there, I've heard (heard it many times). Which is why we are going to become friends with all the odd, fun, good strangers out there so we'll have some help and be a little bit safer if we should ever have to cross paths with the bad ones.
We had so many delightful experiences making new friends across town this weekend. I will probably write about some of them extensively on the old blog tomorrow, should anyone feel like perusing. You will also get to meet a fascinating photographer named Erik, a policeman named Officer Rose, and a cool fella named Jason who gave me a tripod out of the clear blue.
