The TinyWebGallery (TWG) is a photo album / gallery released under a modified Open Source license GPL. It is a server based gallery script for images that uses Ajax, PHP, XML and the graphic library Gdlib / ImageMagick.


TinyWebGallery is written by Michael Dempfle and was first released on 24 February 2005. It is based on a small image script that was developed from Rainer Hungershausen and Mogh. In April 2006 the project moved to the current domain and was listed as 3rd most popular php script on hotscripts.com this time.

Currently the project is developed by Michael Dempfle and supported by ~40 translators and an active community.

The TinyWebGallery has also released a standalone version of Flash Uploader on 15 August 2006 as 'TWG Flash Uploader'. This uploader is also available as Joomla component since 1 August 2007 for Joomla 1.0.x till 3.2.x.
