    public function index()
      return view('images');

    public function store(Request $request)
          'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',

        $image = new Image;
        if ($request->file('image')) {
          $imagePath = $request->file('image');
          $imageName = $imagePath->getClientOriginalName();

          $path = $request->file('file')->storeAs('uploads', $imageName, 'public');

        $image->name = $imageName;
        $image->path = '/storage/'.$path;
        return back()->with('success', 'Image uploaded successfully');

          @if ($errors->has('image'))
              <span class="invalid-feedback" role="alert">
