namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class HomeController extends Controller



* Create a new controller instance.

public function imagesUpload()


return view('imagesUpload');



* Create a new controller instance.


* @return void


public function imagesUploadPost(Request $request)



'uploadFile' => 'required',


foreach ($request->file('uploadFile') as $key => $value) {

$imageName = time(). $key . '.' . $value->getClientOriginalExtension();

$value->move(public_path('images'), $imageName);


return response()->json(['success'=>'Images Uploaded Successfully.']);



Step 3: Create View File

At Last first we will create imagesUpload.blade.php file and put bellow code. So let's copy and paste bellow code.


<!DOCTYPE html>



<title>Laravel Ajax Multiple Image Upload with Preview Example</title>

<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

<script src="//"></script>

<script src=""></script>

<style type="text/css">


display: inline;



border: 1px solid black;

padding: 10px;


#image_preview img{

width: 200px;

padding: 5px;





<div class="container">

<h1>Laravel Ajax Multiple Image Upload with Preview Example</h1>

<form action="{{ route('images.upload') }}" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">

{{ csrf_field() }}

<input type="file" id="uploadFile" name="uploadFile[]" multiple/>

<input type="submit" class="btn btn-success" name='submitImage' value="Upload Image"/>



<div id="image_preview"></div>



<script type="text/javascript">



var total_file=document.getElementById("uploadFile").files.length;

for(var i=0;i<total_file;i++)


$('#image_preview').append("<img src='"+URL.createObjectURL([i])+"'>");





alert("Uploaded SuccessFully");




At Last Make sure you have "images" folder in public folder. All images will store in that folder.
