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

2). Setup Database

 composer  require intervention/image 

After successfully install a laravel image intervention package. Register image intervention package to providers and aliases go to app/config/app.php register here.


'providers' => [

'aliases' => [
'Image' => Intervention\Image\Facades\Image::class

4). Generate Migration & Model

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

php artisan make:model Photo -m

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

public function up()
Schema::create('photos', function (Blueprint $table) {

Before we run PHP artisan migrate command go to app/providers/AppServiceProvider.php and put the below code :

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
function boot()

Next, migrate the table using the below command :

php artisan migrate

5). 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', 'ImageController@index');
Route::post('save-image', 'ImageController@save');

6). 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 :


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator,Redirect,Response,File;
Use Image;
Use App\Photo;
use Intervention\Image\Exception\NotReadableException;

class ImageController extends Controller

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

public function save(Request $request)
      'photo_name' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',

 if ($files = $request->file('photo_name')) {
    // for save original image
    $ImageUpload = Image::make($files);
    $originalPath = 'public/images/';
    // for save thumnail image
    $thumbnailPath = 'public/thumbnail/';
    $ImageUpload = $ImageUpload->save($thumbnailPath.time().$files->getClientOriginalName());

  $photo = new Photo();
  $photo->photo_name = time().$files->getClientOriginalName();

  $image = Photo::latest()->first(['photo_name']);
  return Response()->json($image);


7). 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 :

<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
<title>Laravel Ajax Image Upload Using Intervention Package Example -</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />
<script src="//"></script>
.avatar-pic {
width: 300px;
<div class="container">
<h3 style="margin-top: 12px;" class="text-center alert alert-success">Laravel 5.7 Ajax Image Upload Using Intervention Package Example - <a href="" target="_blank">TutsMake</a></h3>
<div class="row justify-content-center">
<div class="col-md-8">
<form id="imageUploadForm" action="javascript:void(0)" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<div class="file-field">
<div class="row">
<div class=" col-md-8 mb-4">
<img id="original" src="" class=" z-depth-1-half avatar-pic" alt="">
<div class="d-flex justify-content-center mt-3">
<div class="btn btn-mdb-color btn-rounded float-left">
<input type="file" name="photo_name" id="photo_name" required=""> <br>
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-secondary d-flex justify-content-center mt-3">submit</button>
<div class=" col-md-4 mb-4">
<img id="thumbImg" src="" class=" z-depth-1-half thumb-pic"

Now we will implement a laravel ajax image upload script, put the below script after the closing of the body tag.


$(document).ready(function (e) {

$('#imageUploadForm').on('submit',(function(e) {


headers: {

  'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')




var formData = new FormData(this);



   url: "{{ url('save-image')}}",



   contentType: false,

   processData: false,


       $('#original').attr('src', 'public/images/'+ data.photo_name);

       $('#thumbImg').attr('src', 'public/thumbnail/'+ data.photo_name);


   error: function(data){







8). Make Folder

Now create two folders where we store our images. First folder name images that store without resize image and second folder name thumbnail that store resizes the image :

Go to public folder 
=> first create folder name images
=> second create folder name thumbnail

9). Run Development Server

In this last step, we will use the PHP artisan serve command. It will start your server locally

 php artisan serve
If you want to run the project diffrent port so use this below command
php artisan serve --port=8080

Now we are ready to run our example so run bellow command to quick run.
