Photo Management with Laravel – Save in Database


In this tutorial, you will save the photos in database.


As I mentioned, you always can jump into any topic in this series. The setup instructions are at README.

Once your setup is done, let’s get it started.

First thing first, you need a database.

Setup database

Create a database if you don’t have it yet, and configure it in your application.

Next, create a table.

Create photos table

You create a Photo model and a migration file by executing artisan command make:model with -m option.

Then, add a field in the photos table.

Run migration.

Next, save in database.

Save in database

You save a new Photo model after the uploaded photo stored in the storage folder.
