A SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE #33 â€“ THE â€œARTISTEâ€ EMERGES!!!
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.

[The â€œGreat St. Louis Meet-Up;â€ On the Banks of the Mississippi River, Alton, Illinois, April, 2012]
Yes, I know my biographical sketch says that I am a â€œpoint and shoot amateur.â€ But, when I had trouble adjusting my camera last year during the St. Louis meet-up, I took some random shots to see whether I could bring an image into focus.
Little did I realize that my experimentation would yield the photo you see here. It made me realize that, far from being an amateur, I was now an â€œartisteâ€!
Many of you will want to prop this photo (and me)! To save you time, I have developed the list (in my best "JPG-speak"), below. Simply go down the list, select ALL of the numbers that apply, and then enter those numbers the way you would enter props. Remember: You donâ€™t have to write any words! The numbers are all you need. (However, feel free to add additional praise!!!)
