Step one

 composer require digitaldream/photo

Step Two Run Migration

Step Three

 php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Photo/PhotoServiceProvider"

It will publish config, views file. Feel free to edit these files according to your project need.

Step Four

Browse /photo/photos to start using this library

Configure Policy

You can configure who can have what permissions on this photo library. Create a new class and extends it from Photo\Policies\PhotoPolicy like below.

 namespace App\Policies;

 use Photo\Policies\PhotoPolicy as Policy;

  class PhotoPolicy extends Policy
       * @param \App\Models\User $user
       * @return bool
      public function viewAny($user): bool
          return $user->isTeacher();

As you can see we override viewAny method. Now a Teacher can view list of all photos. Other methods like before,view,create,update,delete can be override too. Now to register this Policy class lets change policy key on config/photo.php

#file config/photo.php

'policy' => \App\Policies\PhotoPolicy::class,

How to use in a Model as BelongsTo

First of all you need to put a line on your model migration for example posts.

$table->foreign('photo_id')->references('id')->on('photo_photos')->onDelete('set null');

Secondly you need to define relation on your model.

     * @return \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Relations\BelongsTo
    public function photo()
        return $this->belongsTo(\Photo\Models\Photo::class, 'photo_id');

Third. Lets make upload on controller.

    * @var \Photo\Repositories\PhotoRepository
    protected $photoRepository;

    public function __construct(PhotoRepository $photoRepository)
        $this->photoRepository = $photoRepository;

    public function store(StoreRequest $request)
    //Your other code.
        $post->photo_id = $this->photoRepository->create($file, ['caption' => $data['title']])->id;

You must resolve \Photo\Repositories\PhotoRepository via __construction Dependency injection.

Finally. Its time to render image to view.

 {!! $post->photo->renderThumbnails() !!}

This will render following html code.

    <source type="image/webp" srcset="">
    <img src="" alt="Nice, quietly their belong, place on. It the appeared to">

Above code will render thumbnails in both webp and uploaded extension. To render larger image do following

    {!! $post->photo->render('card-img-top') !!}

Here render method take class name as first argument and style as second.

How to upload file and get file path only.

    namesapce App\Repositories;

    class PostRepository
        * @var \Photo\Services\PhotoService
        protected PhotoService $photoService;

        public function __construct(PhotoService $photoService)
            $this->photoService = $photoService;

        public function store(Request $request)
            $post = new Post();

            $mainImageFolder = "posts"
            $thumbnailWidth = 220;
            $thumbnailHheight= 200;
            $crop="no"; // "yes" will resize image automatically based on your maximum height,width.
            $thumbnailPath = "thumbnails"; // Thumbnails path are relative to main Image folder. In this case it will create a folder thumbnails under posts folder.

            $post->image =  $this->photoService
                                    ->setDimension($thumbnailWidth, $thumbnailHheight, $thumbnailPath)
                                    ->store($mainImageFolder, $request->file('file'), $post->title, $crop)
