In this post, I will explain all about Image upload in LARAVEL.

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

Step - 1

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

php artisan make:controller ImageController

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

Now update your controller with the following codes.


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)
            '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);

Step - 2

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

    Route::get('/image-upload', 'index')->name('image.form');
    Route::post('/upload-image', 'storeImage')->name('');

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 the code below.



    <!-- 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">

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

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

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


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

and once you select an image and upload it you will see the success message with the image.
