By Hardik Savani February 10, 2022 Category : Laravel

Hello All,

This post will give you an example of laravel 9 image upload example. I explained simply step by step image upload in laravel 9. this example will help you laravel 9 upload image to the database.

In this tutorial, we will create two routes one for get method to render forms and another for the post method to upload image code. we created a simple form with file input. So you have to simply select an image and then it will upload in the "images" directory of a public folder.

So you have to simply follow bellow steps and get an image upload in the laravel 9 application.

Step 1: Install Laravel 9

This step is not required; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create Controller

In this step, we will create a new ImageController; in this file, we will add two method index() and store() for render view and store image logic.

Let's create ImageController by following command:

php artisan make:controller ImageController

next, let's update the following code to Controller File.

app/Http/Controllers/ImageController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class ImageController extends Controller

{

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function index()

{

return view('imageUpload');

}

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function store(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',

]);

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

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

/*

Write Code Here for

Store $imageName name in DATABASE from HERE

*/

return back()

->with('success','You have successfully upload image.')

->with('image',$imageName);

}

}

Store Image in Storage Folder

$request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName);

// storage/app/images/file.png

Store Image in Public Folder

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

// public/images/file.png

Store Image in S3

$request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName, 's3');

Step 3: Create and Add Routes

Furthermore, open routes/web.php file and add the routes to manage GET and POST requests for render view and store image logic.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\ImageController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::controller(ImageController::class)->group(function(){

Route::get('image-upload', 'index');

Route::post('image-upload', 'store')->name('image.store');

});

Step 4: Create Blade File

At last step we need to create imageUpload.blade.php file and in this file we will create form with file input button. So copy bellow and put on that file.

resources/views/imageUpload.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

</div>

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

@endif

<form action="{{ route('image.store') }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

@csrf

<div class="mb-3">

<label class="form-label" for="inputImage">Image:</label>

@enderror

</div>

<div class="mb-3">
