Laravel Image Upload With Validation

Just follow the steps, and upload image into folder and MySQL database with image validation:

Contents

  • Install Laravel Fresh App
  • Setup Database
  • Make Route
  • Create Controller & Methods
  • Create Blade View
  • Make Folder
  • Start Development Server
  • Conclusion

1). Install Laravel Fresh App

First of all, we need to download laravel fresh setup. Use the below command and download fresh new laravel setup :

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

2). Setup Database

After successfully install laravel Application, Go to your project .env file and set up database credential and move next step :

 DB_CONNECTION=mysql 
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=here your database name here
DB_USERNAME=here database username here
DB_PASSWORD=here database password here

3). Generate Migration & Model

Now we will create table name Image and it’s migration file. use the below command :

php artisan make:model Image -m

It command will create one model name Image and also create one migration file for Image table. After successfully run the command go to database/migrations file and put the below here :

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class CreateImagesTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('images', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->increments('id');
            $table->string('image');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('images');
    }
}

Next migrate the table using the below command :

php artisan migrate

4). Make Route

We will create two routes in the web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

 Route::get('image', '[email protected]');
Route::get('save', '[email protected]');

5). Create Controller

We need to create a controller name ImageController. Use the below command and create Controller :

php artisan make:controller ImageController

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/ImageController.php and put the below code :

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator,Redirect,Response,File;
Use App\Image;

class ImageController extends Controller
{

    public function index()
    {
        return view('image');
    }

    public function save()
    {
       request()->validate([
            'fileUpload' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',
       ]);
       if ($files = $request->file('fileUpload')) {
           $destinationPath = 'public/image/'; // upload path
           $profileImage = date('YmdHis') . "." . $files->getClientOriginalExtension();
           $files->move($destinationPath, $profileImage);
           $insert['image'] = "$profileImage";
        }
        $check = Image::insertGetId($insert);

        return Redirect::to("image")
        ->withSuccess('Great! Image has been successfully uploaded.');

    }
}

6). Create Blade view

In this step, we need to create a blade view file. Go to app/resources/views and create one file name image.blade.php :

<html lang="en" class="">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">

    <br>
    @endif
    <h2>File Upload &amp; Image Preview</h2>
    <p class="lead">No Plugins <b>Just Javascript</b></p>
    <!-- Upload  -->
    <form id="file-upload-form" class="uploader" action="{{url('save')}}" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8" enctype="multipart/form-data">

        <label for="file-upload" id="file-drag">
            <img id="file-image" src="#" alt="Preview" class="hidden">

                <div id="notimage" class="hidden">Please select an image</div>
                <span id="file-upload-btn" class="btn btn-primary">Select a file</span>
                <br>
                <span class="text-danger">{{ $errors->first('fileUpload') }}</span>
            </div>
            <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Submit</button>

Put the script on image.blade.php after closing of body tag

   </div>
    <script>
      function readURL(input, id) {
        id = id || '#file-image';
        if (input.files &amp;&amp; input.files[0]) {
            var reader = new FileReader();

            reader.onload = function (e) {
                $(id).attr('src', e.target.result);
            };

            reader.readAsDataURL(input.files[0]);
            $('#file-image').removeClass('hidden');
            $('#start').hide();
        }
     }
    </script>
