Inserting images into content created with CKEditor 5 is a very common task. In a properly configured rich-text editor, there are several ways for the end user to insert images:

  • Pasting an image from the clipboard
  • Dragging a file from the file system
  • Selecting an image through a file system dialog
  • Selecting an image from a media management tool in your application
  • Pasting a URL to an image, either into the editor dialog or directly into the content.


Step 1: Install Laravel 11 Application

In this article, we'll install laravel 11 using the following composer command.

composer create-project laravel/laravel laravel_11_example


Step 2: Define Route

Then, we'll define the routes to the web.php file for displaying the text editor and uploading images.


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\CkeditorController;
| Web Routes
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
Route::get('ckeditor', [CkeditorController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('ckeditor/upload', [CkeditorController::class, 'upload'])->name('ckeditor.upload');


Step 3: Create Controller

Next, we'll create a CkeditorController.php file using the following command.

php artisan make:controller CkeditorController


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\View\View;
use Illuminate\Http\JsonResponse;
class CkeditorController extends Controller
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function index(): View
        return view('ckeditor');
     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()
    public function upload(Request $request): JsonResponse
        if ($request->hasFile('upload')) {
            $originName = $request->file('upload')->getClientOriginalName();
            $fileName = pathinfo($originName, PATHINFO_FILENAME);
            $extension = $request->file('upload')->getClientOriginalExtension();
            $fileName = $fileName . '_' . time() . '.' . $extension;
            $request->file('upload')->move(public_path('images'), $fileName);
            $url = asset('media/' . $fileName);
            return response()->json(['fileName' => $fileName, 'uploaded'=> 1, 'url' => $url]);

Note: Make sure you have created an images folder in your public directory because images will be stored in that folder.


Step 4: Create View File

Next, we'll create a ckeditor.blade.php file. So, add the following code to that file.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Laravel 11 CKEditor Image Upload Example - Websolutionstufff</title>
    <link href="[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
        .ck-editor__editable_inline {
            min-height: 300px;
<div class="container">
    <h1>Laravel 11 CKEditor Image Upload Example - Websolutionstuff</h1>
        <div class="form-group">
            <input type="text" name="title" class="form-control" placeholder="Title" value="{{ old('title') }}">
        <div class="form-group">
            <textarea name="editor" id="editor"></textarea>
        <div class="form-group">
            <button class="btn btn-success" type="submit">Submit</button>
<script src=""></script>
    ClassicEditor.create( document.querySelector( '#editor' ),{
        ckfinder: {
            uploadUrl: '{{route('ckeditor.upload').'?_token='.csrf_token()}}',
    .catch( error => {
