To update an image in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a form in your view that allows users to upload a new image file. Make sure to use the enctype="multipart/form-data" attribute in your form tag to handle file uploads.
  2. In your controller, create a method that handles the image update request. Inside this method, you can use the store() method of the UploadedFile class to store the new image in a public directory and update the image path in your database.

use IlluminateSupportFacadesStorage;

public function updateImage(Request $request, $id)
{
    $image = $request->file('image');
    
    // Update image in storage
    $newImage = $image->store('images', 'public');
    
    // Update image path in database
    $item = Item::find($id);
    $item->image = $newImage;
    $item->save();

    return redirect()->back()->with('success', 'Image updated successfully');
}


  1. Don't forget to add the use IlluminateHttpRequest; and use AppModelsItem; at the beginning of your controller file.
  2. Update your routes file to include a route for the image update method.

Route::post('items/{id}/update-image', 'ItemController@updateImage')->name('items.updateImage');


  1. Finally, update your view to include the form that allows users to upload the new image file. Make sure to include a hidden input field with the method spoofing for PUT requests.

<form action="{{ route('items.updateImage', $item->id) }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

    <button type="submit">Update Image</button>
</form>


With these steps, you should be able to update an image in Laravel and store the new image in your public directory.
