How to Preview and Save multiple images in folder in Laravel with Ajax?


Here is the working and tested code, you need to follow:


1. Very first, here is the code for laravel blade template file:

Ajax played very big role in it, I did all without page refresh and on input file onchange event. On Input file Onchange event, I am uploading the files and sent them to controller with ajax. Also, After getting ajax success response back from controller file, I am showing the storing folder images into gallery div the jquery $.each function.

.gallery{margin: 10px 0;display: block;}
    position: relative;
    width: 100px;
    height: 115px;
.imgdiv img{width: 100%;height: 115px;}

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
    <div class="row">
     <div class="col-md-12 mg-t-20">
      <input id="image-upload" name="image_upload[]" type="file"  multiple/>
      <div class="gallery"></div>
    <div class="row">
   <div class="col-md-12 mg-t-20">
    <input class="update btn btn-purple" type="button" value="Upload Gallery" />


$(function() {
// Multiple images preview in browser
 /*Preview Image*/
    let image_upload = new FormData();
    let TotalImages = $('#image-upload')[0].files.length;  //Total Images
    let images = $('#image-upload')[0];  

    for (let i = 0; i < TotalImages; i++) {
    image_upload.append('images' + i, images.files[i]);
    image_upload.append('TotalImages', TotalImages);
                  headers: {
                    'X-CSRF-TOKEN': Laravel.csrfToken
        url: Laravel.appUrl + '/business_owner/image-gallery/addgallery',
        type: 'POST',
        processData: false,
            success: function(result) {
            //Preiview Image Names    
            if(result.type == "previewimage")

                 // Show Images html into gallery
                 $.each(result.imagenames, function(index) {
                     $(".gallery").append("<div class='imgdiv'><img src='"+result.imagenames[index]+"'></div>");
            if(result.type == "error") 
                //For Empty Selection or Invalid image type
 /*Preview Image*/


2. Here is the code for routes/web.php file:

In which we declare the url paths:

Route::post('BladeTeplateFileUrl', 'YourController@addgallery')->middleware('ajax');


3. Here is the final code for your laravel controller file YourController.php, which you have mentioned in web.php file:

I am getting ajax post data and save into the folder first and then send json response back to ajax in success function.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Validator; //For run laravel default valiton rule

 /*Upload Gallery*/
    public function addgallery(Request $request){
         // Count and check total number of images
         if($request->TotalImages > 0)
            // Declare array varibale to store images data
            $imagenames = array();

            for ($x = 0; $x < $request->TotalImages; $x++) {
            if ($request->hasFile('images'.$x)) {
            //Image Validation Rule    
            $rules1 = ['images'.$x =>'mimes:jpeg,jpg,png'];
            $validator = Validator::make($request->all(), $rules1);

            //Not valid image extention
            if ($validator->fails()) {
                return response()->json(["message" => "Image type must be a: jpeg, jpg, png.", 'type' => 'error']);

            $file      = $request->file('images'.$x);
            $filename  = $file->getClientOriginalName();
            $extension = $file->getClientOriginalExtension();
            $picture   = date('His').'-'.$filename;
            $file->move(public_path('img/gallery-images'), $picture);
             // Store Images in array variable
             $imagenames[] = asset('/img/gallery-images/'.$picture);
         //Image Preview Response
         return response()->json(['type' => 'previewimage', 'imagenames' => $imagenames]);
    //Empty Imput
         return response()->json(["message" => "Please select image first.", 'type' => 'error']);
