How To Upload Images in Laravel 9/10

Step 1: Install Laravel 9 For Upload the Image

Step 2: Create Controller

Step 3: Add Routes

Step 4: Create Blade File


Step 1: Install Laravel 9 For Upload the Image

In this step, we will install 9 using the following command.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel_9_image_upload



Step 2: Create Controller

In this step, we will create a new UserController. In the UserController we will add two methods ImageUpload() and ImageUploadStore().

app/Http/Controllers/UserController .php


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

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

class UserController extends Controller
    public function ImageUpload()
    	return view('index');	

    public function ImageUploadStore(Request $request)
            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg|max:2048',
        $imageName = time().'.'.$request->image->extension();  
        $request->image->move(public_path('images'), $imageName);
        return back()
            ->with('success','You have successfully upload image.')



Step 3: Add Routes

Now, we will add routes in the web.php file.


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\UserController;

Route::get('upload/image', [ UserController::class, 'ImageUpload' ]);
Route::post('upload/image/store', [ UserController::class, 'ImageUploadStore' ])->name('');


Step 4: Create Blade File

We will create a basic form with an upload button in the blade file.

                <div class="alert alert-danger">
                    <strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.
