Laravel 8.0 Image Upload Example

Hello artisan,

How are you? Today I am going to show you how to upload images in your  Laravel project. In this tutorial, you can also upload your image reference to your database also. That means you can upload your image to the Database and also you can fetch images from your directory using DB image name reference.

Our final Output looks like:


"laravel 7 image upload"
"laravel upload image to storage"
"laravel upload image to database"
"image upload in laravel 6"
"laravel image upload package"
"laravel upload image to public folder"
"laravel 8 upload image"
"image upload in laravel stack overflow"

Create a Laravel Project first, run this command

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Make databse Connection , create a database in the Mysql database after that go to the .env file and set the values,

Make Database Connection and add the code to .env file
DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=laravel_crud
DB_USERNAME=root
DB_PASSWORD=

Make your custom route,

routes/web.php

Route::get('/image/upload', [UploadImageController::class, 'imageUpload'])->name('image.upload.index');
Route::post('/image/upload/store', [UploadImageController::class, 'imageUploadPost'])->name('image.upload.store');

Create Controller

app/Http/controllers/UploadImageController.php
<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class UploadImageController extends Controller
{
    public function imageUpload(){

        return view('image.image_upload');
    }

    public function imageUploadPost(Request $request){

        $request->validate([
            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',
        ]);

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

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

        /* Store $imageName name in DATABASE from HERE */

        return back()
            ->with('success','You have successfully upload image.')
            ->with('image',$imageName);
    }
}

                </div>
            @endif

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