hwdPhotoShare for Joomla 1.5 is now retired, and is no longer supported or developed. It has been replaced the HWD MediaShare gallery.

hwdPhotoShare was first published in 2009 for Joomla 1.5 and was a popular media component for the Joomla community. It was retired in March 2010, and was replaced with HWD MediaShare for Joomla 2.5.


hwdPhotoShare has server requirements that go beyond those of Joomla. The purpose of these requirements is to process image files on the server. Please see our full requirement list for more details.
