Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Give a parent a photo challenge titled “Happy,” and you’re just asking for baby spam.

More at The Daily Post weekly photo challenge.

Note: I had a devil of a time figuring out how to use WordPress.com’s new gallery formats, which are the drivers behind the multi-photo challenge, so I just defaulted to my usual “collage” solution (Picasa).

Update: Figured out how to set up a gallery!  Complete instructions here.  It looks like the super-cool captioning is only available on rectangular and square configurations, though.  Boooo.

  1. Beautiful spam! I haven’t figured out the captioning yet.

    • If you look at the image file when you’re making (or editing) your gallery, you can change the title, set alt text, insert a caption, etc. From what I can see, you have to insert the desired copy in the “caption” field for it to show up when you mouse over the image. If you leave it blank, a mouse-over will just show the image title (in my browser, anyway).

  2. Such happy little faces. Thanks so much for sharing them. A really cheery post.

    • Thanks so much! They’re not always happy, but when they are it’s a pretty unstoppable onslaught of sweetness.

  3. Haha what a cutie! :D

  4. Beautiful Children. I had problems to with the gallery :( I love your spam photos ;)

    • Thank you! It looks like the WP photo challenge post linked to a “how to” page that assumed that people already knew how to post galleries (I didn’t!). It’s pretty easy to do but there’s a learning curve, for sure.

  6. super awesome!!!

  7. I was getting very frustrated with setting up the gallery. Thanks for the link. Love the baby spam :)

    • Thanks. :-) If you follow the directions in the link I posted it’s actually a pretty straightforward process. I sort of “cheated” so that I could get the challenge done and out of the way — I now that I know how to, I think I’ll definitely use the gallery options in future.

  8. Nothing is more contagious to smiling than a happy baby/child. Lovely shots.

  9. Your kids are beautiful!

  10. you’re baby’s so cute! :)

  11. Excellent choice! Love all those smiling baby faces. :-)
