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.

The reality is . . . THESE are a few of her favorite things at 13: skulls, MP3, computer, and Stephenie Meyer books.
My daughter has remained true to herself, in spite of what others think. I pray every night that she stays that way and never gives in.
I've previously written of my experiences with her becoming a "teen". It's hard. Yes, it's hard for me to reach her . . . but so much harder for her to just be herself without the pressures of negative peer judgement. I love her so much and this time we're in now is so much different and harder for an American girl trying to go from young girl to woman. There's no more gradual in between.
Yes, America is the "land of opportunity". But, look deeper. There's more to that outside appearance. Maybe not - maybe it's more obvious to those in other countries. "We've" become self-absorbed, consumed by material goods, bigger / faster / more / prettier is better. Women are supposed to be beautiful, thin, pleasing objects. If you're too smart, you don't fit in. If you don't wear the proper clothes, you're made fun of. If you're "different", your cast out as useless.
Harsh? Read "Reviving Ophelia" if you are the parent of a young girl today. It's an awakening that's been a long time coming.
