Image Uploading in Laravel 5.3

Image uploading in laravel is very easy. All most any dynamic web applications have this feature. In this article i would like to explain simple way to upload image. You need to careful while handling with files. For security reasons we need to validate uploaded file. Just do following step as below. Make sure give proper  folder permissions to uploaded folder.

Step 1 : Define route 

Step 2 : Create Controller

Step 3 : In view

Create index.blade.php file inside upload directory i.e., Resources/views/upload/index.blade.php

Create image uploading folder inside public folder i.e., public/uploads/images

sample o/p :

image-uploading image-uploading -image-uploading image-uploadin

    That was very straight to the point. Good one. Although i think the ->getClientOriginalExtension() method is a lil verbose. No offense though. I’m fine with just ->etension().

    I wanted a friend to know how the laravel file system works and this seems to be the perfect post to me.
