Image upload in Laravel complete Tutorial.

In this post, I am going to explain all about Image upload in LARAVEL.

After Installing Laravel open code project in code editor & follow the steps below.

Step - 1

Create a Controller to handle all image upload operations by running command below.

php artisan make:controller ImageController
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

this will create a controller inside app\Http\Controllers folder.

Now update your controller with following codes.

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class ImageController extends Controller
{
    // View File To Upload Image
    public function index()
    {
        return view('image-form');
    }

    // Store Image
    public function storeImage(Request $request)
    {
        $request->validate([
            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:png,jpg,jpeg|max:2048'
        ]);

        $imageName = time().'.'.$request->image->extension();

        // Public Folder
        $request->image->move(public_path('images'), $imageName);

        // //Store in Storage Folder
        // $request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName);

        // // Store in S3
        // $request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName, 's3');

        //Store IMage in DB 


        return back()->with('success', 'Image uploaded Successfully!')
        ->with('image', $imageName);
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step - 2

Next thing is to update routes, to update it open routes/web.php file and add below routes.

Route::controller(ImageController::class)->group(function(){
    Route::get('/image-upload', 'index')->name('image.form');
    Route::post('/upload-image', 'storeImage')->name('image.store');
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step - 3

Now it's time to create a view file, open resources/views folder and create a file named image-form.blade.php and update the file with code below.

@extends('app')

@section('content')

    <!-- Container (Contact Section) -->
    <div id="contact" class="container">
        <h1 class="text-center" style="margin-top: 100px">Image Upload</h1>

        @if ($message = Session::get('success'))
            <div class="alert alert-success alert-block">
                <strong>{{$message}}</strong>
            </div>

            <img src="{{ asset('images/'.Session::get('image')) }}" />
        @endif

        <form method="POST" action="{{ route('image.store') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data">
            @csrf
            <input type="file" class="form-control" name="image" />

            <button type="submit" class="btn btn-sm">Upload</button>
        </form>

    </div>
@endsection
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now if you go to browser and visit /image-upload you will see the image upload option.
