This package provides an advanced image field for Nova resources allowing you to upload, crop and resize any image.

It uses Cropper.js with vue-cropperjs in the frontend and Intervention Image in the backend.

To work correctly, this package requires the following components:

  • Laravel & Nova (2 or 3)
  • Fileinfo Extension

And one of the following libraries:

  • GD Library >=2.0 (used by default)
  • Imagick PHP extension >=6.5.7

See Intervention requirements for more details.


Install the package into a Laravel application with Nova using Composer:

composer require ctessier/nova-advanced-image-field

If you want to use Imagick as the default image processing library, follow the Intervention documentation for Laravel. This will provide you with a new configuration file where you can specify the driver you want.


AdvancedImage extends from Image so you can use any methods that Image implements. See the documentation here.


namespace App\Nova;

// ...
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Ctessier\NovaAdvancedImageField\AdvancedImage;

class Post extends Resource
    // ...

    public function fields(Request $request)
        return [
            // ...

            // Simple image upload

            // Show a cropbox with a free ratio

            // Show a cropbox with a fixed ratio

            // Resize the image to a max width

            // Resize the image to a max height
            AdvancedImage::make('Photo')->resize(null, 1080),

            // Show a cropbox and resize the image
            AdvancedImage::make('Photo')->croppable()->resize(400, 300),

            // Override the image processing driver for this field only

            // Store to AWS S3

            // Specify a custom subdirectory

            // Store custom attributes
            AdvancedImage::make('Photo')->croppable()->store(function (Request $request, $model) {
                return [
                    'photo' => $request->photo->store('/', 's3'),
                    'photo_mime' => $request->photo->getMimeType(),
                    'photo_name' => $request->photo->getClientOriginalName(),

The resize option uses Intervention Image resize() with the upsize and aspect ratio constraints.
