use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\ImageUploadController;

// ImageUploadController Route

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class ImageUploadController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return response()

    public function img_upload()
        return view('imgUpload');

     * Write code on Method
     * @return response()

    public function imagestore(Request $request)

            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',


        $imageName = time().'.'.$request->image->extension();

        // Store $imageName name in DATABASE from HERE

        return back()->with('success',"image upload successfully")->with('image',$imageName); ;

Store Image in Storage Folder
$request->image->storeAs('image', $imageName);

// storage/app/images/yourfile.png
Store Image in Public Folder
$request->image->move(public_path('image'), $imageName);

// public/images/yourfile.png
Store Image in S3
$request->image->storeAs('image', $imageName, 's3');
