If you have a question about laravel download file from url to storage then I will give a simple example with a solution. if you want to see an example of laravel download file from link then you are in the right place.

You can use this example with laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9, laravel 10 and laravel 11 versions.

If you need to download a file or image from a URL in laravel, then I will give you a straightforward example of it. We will use Storage facade and file_get_contents() function to download image from url. so let's see the below controller code.




namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Storage;

class DemoController extends Controller



* Write code on Method


* @return response()


public function index(Request $request)


$path = "";

Storage::disk('local')->put('itsolutionstuff.png', file_get_contents($path));

$path = Storage::path('itsolutionstuff.png');

return response()->download($path);
