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.

â€œErick was always there: I am transgender, not transsexual, and I like guys, whether biological or not. Boys are for me! I am clear I donâ€™t want to get hormones, only psychological therapy. Deep down, the gender issue is not important for me. I am Erick, the person, and all I want is my new birth certificate to say Little Erickâ€. These are the categorical words of a young man who is emblematic of the new diversity generations. He created Original Drag King Mexico, which organizes performances and workshops for those who wish to â€œexaggerate, mock or ridicule the male stereotype or roleâ€. Erick is in a crucial moment of his life. He left his job in an import and export firm, which he adored and misses, because they knew him there and treated him according to his prior identity: â€œI felt my head was going to explode, so I quit.â€ He temporarily abandoned his studies in International Trade and works grueling hours as a waiter to pay for the change of his birth certificate, but will somewhat protect him of the unemployment by transphobia: "employers donâ€™t understand one works with oneâ€™s head and not oneâ€™s genitals.â€ Erickâ€™s courage and optimism are as surprising as his fine sense of humor even when detailing the discrimination inflicted upon him by male transgenders themselves who donâ€™t understand his gay option. Erick will undoubtedly achieve what he wants.
