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).

I brought a fishermen pant as a sample for size and pattern, then we discussed how to cut out a the various parts keeping the fonts and colored print streaming.
The result was a one-of-a-kind pant. Today, after 2 years worth of backpacking India, I know it was also an out-of-space outfit around such rural traditional town.
'It's good to walk in them' was printed in Hindi along one leg with a pointing hand that eventually came to rest crotch-level.
The price: 60 Rupees ($1.5 of the day)
That pant literally didn't keep it's word and after a few laundry cycles was eroded and bleached out. The heavy and coarse cloth was also not very suitable to the tropical heat and not to the string bounded nature of the fishermen pant concept (it sometimes slid open...)
But the memory of that first project was a vivid, cross cultural experience that would drive me to many more attempts to bring to life future ideas.
