If you want to use Laravel framework for you any web development task, so first you have to download and installed it in you local computer. For download Laravel 6 framework you have to go command prompt and go to directory in which you want to download Laravel framework, and after this you have to run following command in command prompt.

This command will make laravel6 folder and under this it will download Laravel 6 framework.

Create Controller Class

After download Laravel framework, so you are ready to use Laravel for web development. Here first we want to make Controller class for handle browser http request.So, for create Controller class we have to go command prompt and run following command

This command will make ImageCropController.php file in app/Http/Controllers folder. In this class we have make following method.

index() - This is the root method of this ImageCropController.php controller class. This method has load view file in browser.

upload() - This method has recieved Ajax request for upload Crop image. This method has received in image in binary string. By using base64_decode() method it will convert binary string to image format and by using file_put_contents() function image will be uploaded in crop_image folder. And lastly send response to Ajax request in Ajax format.



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class ImageCropController extends Controller
    function index()
     return view('image_crop');

    function upload(Request $request)
      $image_data = $request->image;
      $image_array_1 = explode(";", $image_data);
      $image_array_2 = explode(",", $image_array_1[1]);
      $data = base64_decode($image_array_2[1]);
      $image_name = time() . '.png';
      $upload_path = public_path('crop_image/' . $image_name);
      file_put_contents($upload_path, $data);
      return response()->json(['path' => '/crop_image/' . $image_name]);

Create View Blade File

In Laravel framework, View Blade file has been used for display HTML output on web page. View file has been store under resources/views folder. Here we have make image_crop.blade.php file for this tutorial. In this file we have use Croppie plugin, Bootstrap library and jquery library.

        data:{"image":response, _token:_token},
