Step 3: Generate Migration & Model

In this step, create a table name and migration file for storing images. So run the following command:

php artisan make:model Image -m

This 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->increments('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

Step 4: Make Route

In this step, you need to create two routes in the web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two routes so update your routes in web.php file:

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

Step 5: Create Controller

In this step, you 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 update the below code :

The first method is index() and it will show you image upload form.

The second method is save() and it will store your images into database and folder in laravel application.

<?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 $request)
    {

        request()->validate([

            'image' => 'required',
            'image.*' => 'image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048'

        ]);

        if ($image = $request->file('image')) {
            foreach ($image as $files) {
            $destinationPath = 'public/image/'; // upload path
            $profileImage = date('YmdHis') . "." . $files->getClientOriginalExtension();
            $files->move($destinationPath, $profileImage);
            $insert[]['image'] = "$profileImage";
            }
        }
      
        $check = Image::insert($insert);

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

    }
}

Step 6: Create Blade view

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

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title></title>
</head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ url('public/cssjs/bootstrap.min.css') }}" />
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<style>
.thumb{
    margin: 10px 5px 0 0;
    width: 300px;
} 
</style>
<body>
<article class="bg-secondary mb-3">  
<div class="card-body text-center">
<h4 class="text-white">Laravel Multiple Image Upload Tutorial With Live Preview</h4>
</div>
</article>
<div class="container">  
    @if ($message = Session::get('success'))

    <div class="alert alert-success alert-block">

        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>

            <strong>{{ $message }}</strong>

    </div>
    <br>
    @endif
<form id="file-upload-form" class="uploader" action="{{url('save')}}" method="post" accept-charset="utf-8" enctype="multipart/form-data">
@csrf
<input type="file" id="file-input" multiple />
<span class="text-danger">{{ $errors->first('image') }}</span>
<div id="thumb-output"></div>
<br>
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Submit</button>
</form>
</div>
</body>

</html>

Add script code in image.blade.php file:

Now, you need to add the following script code into your image.blade.php file:

<script>

$(document).ready(function(){
 $('#file-input').on('change', function(){ //on file input change
    if (window.File &amp;&amp; window.FileReader &amp;&amp; window.FileList &amp;&amp; window.Blob) //check File API supported browser
    {
        
        var data = $(this)[0].files; //this file data
        
        $.each(data, function(index, file){ //loop though each file
            if(/(\.|\/)(gif|jpe?g|png)$/i.test(file.type)){ //check supported file type
                var fRead = new FileReader(); //new filereader
                fRead.onload = (function(file){ //trigger function on successful read
                return function(e) {
                    var img = $('<img/>').addClass('thumb').attr('src', e.target.result); //create image element 
                    $('#thumb-output').append(img); //append image to output element
                };
                })(file);
                fRead.readAsDataURL(file); //URL representing the file's data.
            }
        });
        
    }else{
        alert("Your browser doesn't support File API!"); //if File API is absent
    }
 });
});

</script>
