To get files using Laravel, you can use the following steps:

  1. Use the request() helper function to get the file input from the request. For example, to get a file input with the name 'file', you can use request()->file('file').
  2. Use the store() method on the UploadedFile object returned by the file() method to store the file in a location on the server. For example, you can use request()->file('file')->store('images') to store the file in the 'images' directory.
  3. You can also specify the disk where you want to store the file by passing the disk name as the second argument to the store() method. For example, request()->file('file')->store('images', 'public') will store the file in the 'images' directory on the 'public' disk.
  4. After storing the file, you can get the path to the stored file by calling the store() method with only the directory name. For example, request()->file('file')->store('images') will return the path to the stored file.
  5. You can then use the path to the stored file to display or manipulate the file in your application.


Overall, Laravel provides a simple and convenient way to get and work with files in your application.
