After choosing an image from browse we can see the preview of the image. dropzone.js also provide filter like we can make validation for max upload, a specific image, or file extension like png, jpg, GIF, etc.

Route::get('dropzone/example', 'App\Http\Controllers\UserController@dropzoneExample');
Route::post('dropzone/store', 'App\Http\Controllers\UserController@dropzoneStore')->name('dropzone.store');



Step 2 : Create Controller

Now, we will create a controller and add the below code for image upload.

Note : Create a new images folder in your public folder to save images.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\User;

class UserController extends Controller

    public function dropzoneExample()
        return view('dropzone_view');

    public function dropzoneStore(Request $request)
        $image = $request->file('file');

        $imageName = time().'.'.$image->extension();
        return response()->json(['success'=>$imageName]);


Step 3 : Add Blade File For View

 Now, create a blade file for view output in this path resources\views\dropzone_view.blade.php
