Step 1 : Add Routes for Laravel 8 Image Upload Example

In this first step we need to install laravel if you have already installed then add routes in routes/web.php file shown as below


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

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



Step 2 : Create Controller

Now create new UserController and we will add two method ImageUpload() and ImageUploadStore(). here first method will handle get method another one for post.

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 : Create Blade File

In blade file we will create basic form with upload button. So, copy and add below code.

    <title>Laravel 8 Image Upload And Display Example - Techsolutionstuff</title>
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet">
    <div class="container">
        <h2 style="margin-top: 30px;">Laravel 8 Image Upload And Display Example - Techsolutionstuff</h2>
        <div class="panel-body"> 
            <div class="col-md-8">    
            @if ($message = Session::get('success'))
            <div class="alert alert-success alert-block">
                <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>
                    <strong>{{ $message }}</strong>
            <img src="{{asset('images')}}/{{ Session::get('image') }}" width="300" height="300">
            @if (count($errors) > 0)
                <div class="alert alert-danger">
                    <strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.
                        @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
                            <li>{{ $error }}</li>
            <form action="{{ url('upload/image/store') }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                <div class="row"> <br>   
                    <div class="col-md-6">
                        <input type="file" name="image" class="form-control">
                    <div class="col-md-6">
                        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Upload</button>
