Hi Guys,

In this tutorial, I will learn you how to create multiple image upload in laravel 8. We will show example of laravel 8 multiple image upload.Here you will learn laravel 8 multiple images upload. We will look at example of multiple image upload laravel 8. this example will help you laravel 8 multiple image upload with preview. Alright, let’s dive into the steps.

I will create simple multiple image upload in laravel 8. So you basically use this code on your laravel 8 application.I are going from starch so, we will upload multiple file and store on server then after we will store database too. so in this example we will create "files" table using laravel migration and write code for route, controller and view step by step.

Here, I will give you full example for laravel 8 multiple image upload as bellow.

Step-1:Download Laravel 8 Fresh New Setup

First, we need to download the laravel fresh setup. Use the below command and download fresh new laravel setup :

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Add Migration and Model

Here, we need create database migration for files table and also we will create model for files table.

php artisan make:migration create_files_table


use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateFilesTable extends Migration



* Run the migrations.


* @return void


public function up()


Schema::create('files', function (Blueprint $table) {







* Reverse the migrations.


* @return void


public function down()





php artisan migrate

Next I will create File model by using following command:

php artisan make:model File



namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class File extends Model


use HasFactory;

protected $fillable = [




Step 3: Create Routes

In next step, we will create routes for multiple file upload. so create two route with GET and POST route example.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\MultipleFileUploadController;



| 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!



// MultipleFileUploadController

Route::get('/multiple-file-upload', [MultipleFileUploadController::class, 'index'])->name('multiple.file.upload.index');

Route::post('/multiple-file-upload/store', [MultipleFileUploadController::class, 'store'])->name('');

Step 4: Create Controller

Here I require to add new MultipleFileUploadController controller for manage route So let's create MultipleFileUploadController with create and store method. Make sure you need to create "files" folder in your public directory.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\File;

class MultipleFileUploadController extends Controller


public function index()


return view('multipleFileUpload');


public function store(Request $request)


$this->validate($request, [

'files' => 'required'


$files = [];


foreach($request->file('files') as $file){

$name = time().rand(1,100).'.'.$file->extension();

$file->move(public_path('files'), $name);

$files[] = $name;



File::create(['files' => json_encode($files)]);

return back()->with('success', 'Files uploaded successfully');



Store Image in Storage Folder

$request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName);

// storage/app/images/file.png

Store Image in Public Folder

$request->image->move(public_path('images'), $imageName);

// public/images/file.png

Store Image in S3

$request->image->storeAs('images', $imageName, 's3');

Step 5: Create Blade File

in this step we need to create multipleFileUpload.blade.php file in resources folder. So let's multipleFileUpload file:

<div class="container">

<div class="row">

<div class="col-md-6 offset-3 mt-5">

<div class="card mt-5">

<div class="card-header text-center bg-primary">

<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>



@if (count($errors) > 0)

<ul class="alert alert-danger pl-5">

@foreach($errors->all() as $error)

<li>{{ $error }}</li>




<form method="post" action="{{ route('') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data">


<div class="input-group file-div control-group lst increment" >

<input type="file" name="files[]" class="myfrm form-control">

<div class="input-group-btn">

<button class="btn btn-success add-btn" type="button"><i class="fldemo fa fa-plus"></i></button>

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success rounded-0"><i class="fa fa-save"></i> Save</button>









<script type="text/javascript">
