To store an image with Laravel, you can follow these steps:

<form action="/upload-image" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <input type="file" name="image">
    <button type="submit">Upload Image</button>
</form>


  1. Create a route in your routes/web.php file to handle the image upload.

public function store(Request $request)
{
    $image = $request->file('image');
    $imageName = $image->getClientOriginalName();
    
    Storage::putFileAs('public', $image, $imageName);

    return "Image uploaded successfully!";
}

    'driver' => 'local',
    'root' => storage_path('app/public'),
    'url' => env('APP_URL').'/storage',

],


  1. create a symbolic link from public/storage to storage/app/public.

php artisan storage:link


  1. Access the stored image using the following URL:

<img src="{{ asset('storage/' . $imageName) }}" alt="Image">
