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.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. St Matthew 5: 8
In God's sanctuary
A song bird sings
The heart they carry
With sacred wings...
Tho' he can't observe
The art on the board
For the purpose it serves
Unless turned around.
To the other side...
He blesses the Lord
Who is his guide
On his journey bound.
Poetry by me AJP
I recently propped up a a little board on the window ledge (that I painted on several years ago)
for the purpose of manually pre-focusing on it to get a sharper focus of the song birds who are moving constantly on the other side of the glass.......The old window being rolled glass makes it challenging to get a good focus as it presents wavy distortions in the pattern of the glass.
