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 my many travels, I have never seen a lake more beautiful than Crater Lake in Oregon. Wizard Island is the tip of the volcano that created this caldera lake.
Its colors are so blue that early visitors to the site accused the park administration of artificially coloring it. (not true of course) Its waters are the purest on the planet and its color is due to the extreme depth of the lake. It has a maximum depth clarity of 100 - 134 feet.
There are no springs or inlets into the lake. It is filled with rain and melted snow creating a maximum depth of 1949 feet (measured in July of 2000).
The maximum diameter of the caldera is 6.02 miles.
