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).

In the sleepy pueblito of Las Tinas, Baja, Mexico, Rocendo Sandez has been making rope from palm leaves his entire life. The rather simple process involves hanging the new palm leaf sprouts to dry. He then rubs the strands between his calloused hands until they are intertwined. The resulting rope is used in the construction of palapa roofs, also made by hand. He hopes to teach his granddaughter the craft, as has been done for centuries.
Lightbox, if you please.
