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.

I gently herded all 1/2 inches of this fuzzy little critter onto a large white foam board, and spent the next 45 minutes at various height, angle and lighting with a Canon 100mm f2.8 1:1 macro on a tripod. I held the remote release in one hand, and a paint brush in the other (because that's what you are supposed to use when you herd 1/2 inch fuzzy spiders around your office).
In the end I think we were both quite exhausted, so I released him back into my garden where he came from, and that, was that.*
*Disclaimer: No tiny, 1/2 inch fuzzy spiders were harmed during the creation of this image.
