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 think her face says it all.
She is a semi-wild Orang-Utan in Sepiloks' Rehab Centre. I've been wanting to visit the rehab centre for a while, as it takes in orphaned and rescued Orang-Utans and is funded by a U.K. charity. However at feeding time, I saw that it wasn't an ideal set-up. While the centre needs the money, it needs to be more strict about interactions with the wildlife. She arrived early and for some reason choose to hang within the crowd. Petted and camera-flashed, people fled if she moved too quickly. Eventually frustrated, she lashed out aggressively and bite someone - someone who deserved it, acting in manner completely disrespectful.. The tragedy is that she exposed herself to physical human contact, which I'm told is potentially fatal to her and her community. I feel that these rehab centres are becoming more and more important to the survival of these magnificent creatures. However more aid is always needed for the rehab centre to be able to continue and improve their care and move away from tourism, but is this easier said than done?
