STEP – 1 Install Laravel project to begin your journey with multiple image uploads in Laravel 8.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel multiple-image

STEP – 2 Create model and migration

In this step will create model and migration to do our multiple image upload in laravel 8. run the below command to create model and migration together.

php artisan make:model File -m

now go to your app/Http/Models/File.php and write the below code

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class File extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;
    protected $guarded = [""];  
}

Now go to app/database/migrations/ and look for 2020_12_09_104645_create_files_table.php and add the below code.

<?php


use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;


class CreateFilesTable extends Migration
{
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('files', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('filenames');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }


    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('files');
    }
}

now run php artisan migrate it will create a table in your database which we will use to upload multiple image in laravel 8

STEP – 3 Create routes

Now we are going to create routes.

Before adding a route in web.php we have to add our controller namespace on the top.

use App\Http\Controllers\FileController;

Now add the below routes in your web.php file

Route::get('/file', [FileController::class, 'create']);
Route::post('/file', [FileController::class, 'store']);

STEP – 4 Create a controller

Now we are going to create controller to do multiple image upload in laravel 8. To create the controller run the below command.

php artisan make:controller FileController

Now go to app/Http/Controller/FileController.php and add the below code

<?php


namespace App\Http\Controllers;


use Illuminate\Http\Request;


class FileController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Show the application dashboard.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function create()
    {
        return view('create');
    }


    /**
     * Show the application dashboard.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function store(Request $request)
    {


        $this->validate($request, [
                'filenames' => 'required',
                'filenames.*' => 'mimes:doc,pdf,docx,zip'
        ]);


        if($request->hasfile('filenames'))
         {
            foreach($request->file('filenames') as $file)
            {
                $name = time().'.'.$file->extension();
                $file->move(public_path().'/files/', $name);  
                $data[] = $name;  
            }
         }


         $file= new File();
         $file->filenames=json_encode($data);
         $file->save();


        return back()->with('success', 'Data Your files has been successfully added');
    }
}

STEP – 5 Create a blade file

Now we will write code in our blade file.

<html lang="en">
<head>
  <title>Laravel 8 Multiple File Upload Example</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.2/css/bootstrap.min.css">

</head>
<body>


<div class="container lst">


@if (count($errors) > 0)
<div class="alert alert-danger">
    <strong>Sorry!</strong> There were more problems with your HTML input.<br><br>
    <ul>
      @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
          <li>{{ $error }}</li>
      @endforeach
    </ul>
</div>
@endif


@if(session('success'))
<div class="alert alert-success">
  {{ session('success') }}
</div> 
@endif


<h3 class="well">Laravel 8 Multiple File Upload</h3>
<form method="post" action="{{url('file')}}" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  {{csrf_field()}}


    <div class="input-group hdtuto control-group lst increment" >
      <input type="file" name="filenames[]" class="myfrm form-control" multiple>
      <div class="input-group-btn">

      </div>
    </div>
    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success" style="margin-top:10px">Submit</button>
