To bulk upload images in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a form in your view where users can select multiple images to upload.
  2. In your controller, write a function to handle the image upload process. You can use Laravel's store() method to store the uploaded images in a specified directory.
  3. Use a loop to iterate through each uploaded image and call the store() method to save them to the storage directory.
  4. Ensure that you have configured the correct permissions on the storage directory to allow for file uploads.
  5. Display a success message to the user once the images have been successfully uploaded.


Here is a sample code snippet to demonstrate how you can bulk upload images in Laravel:

public function bulkImageUpload(Request $request)
{
    if ($request->hasFile('images')) {
        foreach ($request->file('images') as $image) {
            $imageName = $image->getClientOriginalName();
            $image->storeAs('public/images', $imageName);
        }
        
        return redirect()->back()->with('success', 'Images uploaded successfully!');
    }
}


In your view file, make sure to include the enctype="multipart/form-data" attribute in your form tag to enable file uploads:

<form action="{{ route('upload.images') }}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    @csrf
    <input type="file" name="images[]" multiple>
    <button type="submit">Upload Images</button>
</form>


Remember to replace the form action and route names with your own routes and controller methods.


By following these steps, you can easily bulk upload images in Laravel.
