     protected $fillable = [
         'name', 'path'

Route::get('upload-images', 'ImageController@index');
Route::post('upload-images', 'ImageController@storeImage');

After generating the controller, open the app/Http/Controllers/ImageController.php file and put the below code on it.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Image;

class ImageController extends Controller
    public function index()

      return view('images');

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

        $image = new Image;

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

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

        $image->name = $imageName;
        $image->path = '/storage/'.$path;

        return response()->json('Image uploaded successfully');

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">

   $('#upload-image-form').submit(function(e) {
       let formData = new FormData(this);

          url: `upload-images`,
           data: formData,
           contentType: false,
           processData: false,
           success: (response) => {
             if (response) {
               alert('Image has been uploaded successfully');
