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.

My friend Kevin and I took a day in San Francisco to venture towards the Pacific Health Hospital in the Presidio district. Although it's been closed off to the public, a few have been able to gain magical access into the interior of the building- I didn't get the magical trip in, I'm guessing they have three security guards on post because of the safety issues inside, some of the floors were reported to be crumbling on the top floors.
This was one of my infrared experiments while we were relaxing in the back of the hospital.
An excerpt from strangeusa.com:
"The PHSH is completely abandoned since 1988. There are plans to demolish the modern aisles and transform the historical buildings into housing with construction starting in 2005, so everything you see here will be destroyed soon. The Presidio Hospital is a really interesting place to explore, as it is very large (6 interconnected buildings, most of them 7-story), mostly intact and covered with @many@ cool graffiti. It was once used as a movie set (see those Command Center Delta stencils). At night the place is rather spooky. We heard that one person got murdered in the PHSH in 2002. The building in the back contains the hospital kitchen with its enormous freezers, the operating rooms and a number of X-ray machines. Many operating rooms still have floodlights and rubber tubes hanging from the ceiling. Several old X-Ray machines are rusting in place. Many of those X-ray machines and scanners were top-of-the-line multi-million dollar equipment in 1981 when the hoptital was closed, and they have just been left there, what a waste of public money! In the eastern part of the basement, the morgue still has its freezer with six big drawers for the dead bodies, and the greenish autopsy room next door. Many rusted machines, pumps, pipes and tanks are still there. The buildings are fenced and boarded but not guarded or patrolled 24/7, although Police are often seen in the parking lot."
