To upload multiple images into a database using Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Set up a database table to store the images. You can create a new migration file using the following command: php artisan make:migration create_images_table In the migration file, define the structure of the images table and make sure it has a column to store the image file path.
  2. Create a model for the images table by running the following command: php artisan make:model Image
  3. Create a form in your view with an input field of type "file" that allows users to select multiple images to upload. @csrf
  4. In your controller, create a method to handle the image upload and insertion into the database. public function storeImages(Request $request) { if ($request->hasFile('images')) { foreach ($request->file('images') as $image) { $imagePath = $image->store('images'); Image::create(['path' => $imagePath]); } } return redirect()->back()->with('success', 'Images uploaded successfully'); }
  5. Define a route that points to the storeImages method in your controller. Route::post('/store/images', [ImageController::class, 'storeImages'])->name('store.images');
  6. Make sure your Laravel application has write permissions to the storage directory where the images are stored.
  7. Test the image upload functionality by selecting multiple images in the form and submitting it. The images should be uploaded to the storage directory and inserted into the database.


By following these steps, you can easily upload multiple images into a database using Laravel.
