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 pop was from here. rad! he died before i was born. my da's favourite stories about his dad come from here. rumour/legend has it told that when pop moved with the family to run the local hotel in Goulbourn he couldn't take his dog, so my great grandfather told him he had to shoot it. he cried and cried, just couldn't do it hey. so, his best mate stepped up, took the dog up the mountain, and put him down. what a mate. thats what they're for. the day i took this photo my da was running around showing me all the spots his dad could have played. like a little boy. well, he met this old bloke, he was about 143 in the shade, and they got talking about my pop. he moved to araluen after my pop had gone but after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, pops mate who shot the dog, he and this guy became best mates too...and pops mate always told this guy "how he had to shoot Gerry's dog for him cause that what ya mates did!" that was over 80 years ago!
well, they all cried, ha, it was heavy and i'd never seen my Da so proud in all my life. he still looks like a boxer when he tells that story. small dry smile, chest puffing out. "jeez, Settle down dad.... and put your shirt back on."
