Laravel 6 - Preview and Crop Image Before Upload using Ajax

Step 1: Create Routes in web.php file

In this first step, we need to create routes to the web.php file. So, let's create it.


Route::get('crop-image', ['as' => 'image', 'uses' => 'ImageController@imageCreate']);
Route::post('crop-image-store', ['as'=>'upload.image','uses'=>'ImageController@ImageUpload']);

Step 2 : Create ImageController

Here, Create Controller to the following command. So, open your terminal and fire below command.

php artisan make:controller ImageController

After creating the Image Controller we follow ImagerController file code.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
class ImageController extends Controller

    public function imageCreate(){

      return view('Uploadimage');


    public function ImageUpload(Request $request)

        $image = $request->image;

        list($type, $image) = explode(';', $image);
        list(, $image)      = explode(',', $image);

        $image = base64_decode($image);
        $image_name= time().'.png';
        $path = public_path('image/'.$image_name);

        file_put_contents($path, $image);

        return response()->json(['status'=>true]);



Step 3: Create Uploadimage.blade.php file

In the last step, we need to create a blade file. So, let's do it.


<html lang="en">
  <title>Laravel 6 - Preview and Crop Image Before Upload using Ajax-</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
  <script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>
  <meta name="token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
    <div class="container">
      <div class="panel panel-info">
        <div class="panel-heading">Laravel 6 - Preview and Crop Image Before Upload using Ajax-</div>
        <div class="panel-body">
          <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-4 text-center">
                <div id="upload-demo"></div>
            <div class="col-md-4" style="padding:5%;">
                <strong>Select image for crop:</strong>
                <input type="file" id="images" name="image">
                <button class="btn btn-primary btn-block image-upload" style="margin-top:2%">Upload Image</button>
            <div class="col-md-4">
                <div id="show-crop-image" style="background:#e2e2e2;width:400px;padding:60px 60px;height:400px;"></div>

   <script type="text/javascript">
      headers: {
        'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="token"]').attr('content')

    var resize = $('#upload-demo').croppie({
        enableExif: true,
        enableOrientation: true,    
        viewport: { 
            width: 300,
            height: 300,
            type: 'circle'

        boundary: {
            width: 300,
            height: 300

    $('#images').on('change', function () { 
      var reader = new FileReader();
        reader.onload = function (e) {
            console.log('success bind image');


    $('.image-upload').on('click', function (ev) {
      resize.croppie('result', {
        type: 'canvas',
        size: 'viewport'

      }).then(function (img) {
          url: "{{route('upload.image')}}",
          type: "POST",
          data: {"image":img},
          success: function (data) {
            html = '<img src="' + img + '" />';

Now we require to create an image folder in public directory.

Now we are ready to run.
