How to Upload image with Validation in Laravel?

Today now in this post i want to show you How to Upload image with Validation in Laravel? Now a days we know that laravel is very popular PHP framework today. There are several changes and enhancement on Laravel every version.

So, Today i want to share with you about how to image uploading in Laravel also with validation. If you are a beginners then you can easily do that because it is simply just need to following few step. Laravel is provide us very simple way to create file the uploading also with proper validation as like max file size 2MB, valid the file extension as like jpeg,png,jpg,gif or svg etc. So we can easily implement this on our laravel application.

Here I am give you very a easy and very simple example on that way we can understand very well. So just you have to just following the few step.

Step 1: Add Route

At First we need add two new route in your routes.php file. At first one for generate the view and second one for the post method. so let’s and add the bellow route in your route file.

routes.php

Route::get('image-upload','ImageController@imageUpload');
Route::post('image-upload','ImageController@imageUploadPost');
Step 2: Add Controller

Ok, now we have to create the ImageController.php file. If you don’t have any ImageController then you have to create a new and put the bellow code on that file. So make sure that you have a “images” folder with the full permission in your public directory. So we will store the image in images directory.

app/Http/Controllers/ImageController.php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Http\Requests;


class ImageController extends Controller
{


    /**
    * Create view file
    *
    * @return void
    */
    public function imageUpload()
    {
    	return view('image-upload');
    }


    /**
    * Manage Post Request
    *
    * @return void
    */
    public function imageUploadPost(Request $request)
    {
    	$this->validate($request, [
            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',
        ]);


        $imageName = time().'.'.$request->image->getClientOriginalExtension();
        $request->image->move(public_path('images'), $imageName);


    	return back()
    		->with('success','Image Uploaded successfully.')
    		->with('path',$imageName);
    }


}
Step 3: Create Blade File

Now in the last step we need to create a view file for image or file uploading. So you need to create a imageupload.blade.php and then put the following code in that file.

resources/views/imageupload.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>Laravel Image Upload with Validation example</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.6/css/bootstrap.min.css">
</head>
<body>


<div class="container">
<div class="panel panel-primary">
  <div class="panel-heading"><h2>Laravel Image Upload with Validation example</h2></div>
  <div class="panel-body">


	  	@if (count($errors) > 0)
			<div class="alert alert-danger">
				<strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.<br><br>
				<ul>
					@foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
						<li>{{ $error }}</li>
					@endforeach
				</ul>
			</div>
		@endif


		@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>
		<img src="/images/{{ Session::get('path') }}">
		@endif


		<form action="{{ url('image-upload') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
			{{ csrf_field() }}
			<div class="row">
				<div class="col-md-12">
					<input type="file" name="image" />
				</div>
				<div class="col-md-12">
					<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Upload</button>
				</div>
			</div>
		</form>


  </div>
