Step 1: Install Laravel 6 Project

I am going to install a laravel project using composer.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel6

Step 2: Going inside of project using the command

cd laravel6

Step 3: Setup MySQL database

Now, configure this database in the .env file.

 [email protected]

Step 4: Create employee_images Table and Model also.

Here, I have created migration for employee_images using Laravel 6 php artisan command, you can check command below.

php artisan make:migration create_employee_image_tabel

Once this command is done open file database/migrations and put code inside of migration file.

public function up()
         Schema::create('employee_images', function (Blueprint $table) {

Now run migration command:

php artisan migrate

Step 5: Create a Model

After creating “employee_images” table you should create EmployeeImage model. So first we have to run bellow laravel artisan command for creating EmployeeImage model:

php artisan make:model EmployeeImage

Find a file inside of app folder


class EmployeeImage extends Model
      * The attributes that are mass assignable.
      * @var array
     protected $fillable = [
         'title', 'image'

Here I am going to create routes to get and post method. now open “routes/web.php” file and put below code.


Route::get('employeeImageUpload', '[email protected]');
Route::post('employeeImageUpload', '[email protected]')->name('employeeImageUpload');

Step 6: Create Controller

Now I am going to create a new controller as EmployeeImageUploadController. you can find inside of app/Http/Controllers/EmployeeImageUploadController.php. in this controller we will mange layout and image validation with post request, run bellow command.

php artisan make:controller EmployeeImageUploadController

Now put code inside of the controller



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator;
use App\AjaxImage;

class EmployeeImageUploadController extends Controller
     * Show the application employeeImageUpload.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function employeeImageUpload()
    	return view('employeeImageUpload');

     * Show the application employeeImageUploadPost.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function employeeImageUploadPost(Request $request)
      $validator = Validator::make($request->all(), [
        'nmae' => 'required',
        'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',
    //   Adding custom alert
      ['nmae.required' => 'A name is required']);
     if ($validator->passes()) {
        $input = $request->all();
        $input['image'] = time().'.'.$request->image->extension();
        $request->image->move(public_path('images'), $input['image']);
        return response()->json(['success'=>'done']);
    return response()->json(['error'=>$validator->errors()->all()]);

Step 7: Create View

Here I am going to create employeeImageUpload.blade.php(resources/views/employeeImageUpload.blade.php) for layout and we will write design code here.


	<title>Laravel 6 Ajax Image Upload with validation: Real Programmer</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
	<script src=""></script>
	<script src=""></script>

<div class="container">
  <h1>Laravel 6 Ajax Image Upload with validation: Real Programmer</h1>
  <form action="{{ route('ajaxImageUpload') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
      	<div class="alert alert-danger print-error-msg" style="display:none">
    <input type="hidden" name="_token" value="{{ csrf_token() }}">
    <div class="form-group">
      <input type="text" name="name" class="form-control" placeholder="Name">
	<div class="form-group">
      <input type="file" name="image" class="form-control">
    <div class="form-group">
      <button class="btn btn-success upload-image" type="submit">Upload Image</button>
<script type="text/javascript">

  var options = { 
    complete: function(response) 
    		alert('Image Upload Successfully.');
  function printErrorMsg (msg) {
	$.each( msg, function( key, value ) {

Now you can open bellow URL on your browser:

php artisan serve
