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 just realized that the last 8 photos I loaded to JPG are from digital cameras. Shame on me! So, for Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, I am loading an image captured using my Diana+ with the Pinhole feature.
For extra credit, I used 20 year expired AGFA RS100 slide film and I had the lab cross process it with C41 chemicals. My new lab is Renaissance Creative Imagingand I highly recommend them if you are in the RI area.
Since this is a pinhole shot, I had to keep the shutter open for 3 seconds. Amber captured me using this makeshift monopod to keep the plastic camera steady.
This drawbridge over the Seekonk River has been stuck in the "up" position for as long as I care to remember. I guess it's appropriate that the East Side of Providence has a "stuck up" bridge (a little RI humor).
Created using my Diana+ using the pinhole feature with expired AGFA RS100 slide film, cross processed with C41. Negative scanned with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation used!
