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.

Laura's powerful photo of the Jewish cemetery in her town got me thinking about when I was just a lad...well actually a world class military brat in the making...and my father was stationed in Kassel, Germany. I remember kind Papa Rattenhover and his son Hans. When it came time for us to leave they wanted us to have some things. Papa gave us his World War I dress helmet (all that remains is the metal emblem) and some worthless examples of German Marks at the height of the inflation that struck Germany in the 20s (10,000,000 marks to the dollar). Hans gave us his book (as a Hitler Youth he was expected to collect all the pertinent pictures from the backs of cigarette packs and paste them in their designated spot). I don't think they wanted them anymore and perhaps they hoped they could show us in some way the nightmare they had gone through (and somehow survived). Hans wrote inside the cover: "1935 When I was a boy I collected these pictures and got a book, which represents 'Struggle for the 3rd Rich,' In Friendship, Hans Rattenhover, Munich 56."
Thanks to peggy gardner and Patty Gross for the spotlights.
