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.

Forrest "Pussy" Johnson is a former Marine who fought across the Pacific in the 3rd Marine Division. His good "friend," Oscar Stone, put this up on his sign in the middle of Berwick, Maine on July 27, 2006. Pus was definitely surprised to see it when he went downtown that morning for the paper. The sign gave the town something to talk about for weeks.
Forrest's unique nickname got my son sent to the principal's office. His Spanish teacher asked the class if they knew anyone with an unusual nickname and my son immediately said "Pussy!" To this day I don't think the teacher believes that's his actual nickname.
PS I like to tell people that my mother-in-law, Helen, can sink a thousand ships with one disapproving look. Forrest and Helen celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary not long ago.
