Here I am explaining you that how to resize image before upload in laravel. Please read this at the end and follow:

  1. Install Intervention Image Package
  2. Routes Creation
  3. Create Controller File
  4. Create View File and  Upload Directory

Lets start the tutorial for resize image before upload in laravel

Step 1:

In this step, install intervention package using this command:

composer require intervention/image

Add this code for provider path and alias path in config/app.php.

return [
   $provides => [
    $aliases => [
           'Image' => 'Intervention\Image\Facades\Image'

Step 2:

In second step, add route in your routes/web.php file:


Route::get('/', 'ImageController@resizeImage');
Route::post('resizeImagePost', 'ImageController@resizeImagePost')->name('resizeImagePost');

Step 3:

Run this command in cmd/terminal for create ImageController.php file:

php artisan make:controller ImageController

Find ImageController.php file in your app/Http/Controllers directory and put this code:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Http\Requests;
use Image;
class ImageController extends Controller
    public function resizeImage()
        return view('resizeImage');
    public function resizeImagePost(Request $request)
        $this->validate($request, [
            'title' => 'required',
            'image' => 'required|image|mimes:jpeg,png,jpg,gif,svg|max:2048',
        $image = $request->file('image');
        $input['imagename'] = time().'.'.$image->extension();
        $destinationPath = public_path('/thumbnail');
        $img = Image::make($image->path());
        $img->resize(100, 100, function ($constraint) {
        $destinationPath = public_path('/images');
        $image->move($destinationPath, $input['imagename']);
        return back()
            ->with('success','Image Upload successful')

Step 4:

Create index.blade.php inside resources/views directory and put below code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <div class="container">
            <h1>Resize Image Uploading Demo</h1>
            @if (count($errors) > 0)
                <div class="alert alert-danger">
                    <strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.<br><br>
                        @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
                            <li>{{ $error }}</li>
            @if ($message = Session::get('success'))
            <div class="alert alert-success alert-block">
                <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>    
                <strong>{{ $message }}</strong>
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col-md-4">
                    <strong>Original Image:</strong>
                    <img src="/images/{{ Session::get('imageName') }}" />
                <div class="col-md-4">
                    <strong>Thumbnail Image:</strong>
                    <img src="/thumbnail/{{ Session::get('imageName') }}" />
            <form class="" action="{{route('resizeImagePost')}}" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">
                <input type="hidden" name="_token" value="{{ csrf_token() }}" />
                <div class="row">
                    <div class="col-md-4">
                        <input type="text" name="title" class="form-control" placeholder="Add Title">
                    <div class="col-md-12">
                        <input type="file" name="image" class="image">
                    <div class="col-md-12">
                        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Upload Image</button>

Ok, at last create two directory in your public folder:

  1. images
  2. thumbnail

Give permission to that folder and check.
