In this article, we will see the laravel 8 image upload example. Image or file upload is the most common task in web development. So here, we will show you how to upload images in laravel 8. Here we will see laravel 8 upload images to a public folder. So, we will create two routes, one for the get method and the second for the post method, and also we are creating a basic form with file input. So you have to simply select the image and then it will upload in the "images" directory of the public folder.

So, let's see the laravel 8 image upload and display.

Image Upload In Laravel 8 With Preview

Step 1: Add Routes

First of all, we need to install laravel 8 if you have already then add routes in the routes/web.php file shown below

Route::get('upload/image', 'App\Http\Controllers\UserController@ImageUpload');
Route::post('upload/image/store', 'App\Http\Controllers\UserController@ImageUploadStore');


Step 2: Create Controller

In this step, we will create new UserController and we will add two method ImageUpload() and ImageUploadStore(). here the first method will handle the get method other one for the 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 the blade file, we will create a basic form with an upload button. So, add the below code.

    <title>Laravel 8 Image Upload Example -</title>
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet">
    <div class="container">
        <h2 style="margin-top: 30px;">Laravel 8 Image Upload Example -</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>
