Using package

To avoid clashed request, we suggest you to add a little code to the end of your .htaccess file in public laravel folder

RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|png|gif|tif|bmp)$ index.php [NC,L]

create folder images to your public folder (however you can change name of folder in config file), and put image to that folder, for example you put image with file name a photo.jpg, and you can access your photo as usual http://localhost/images/photo.jpg.

Request with size

Now you can request image with specify size (thumbnail,small,medium,large)

http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?size=thumbnail default width 100px
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?size=small default width 240px
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?size=medium default width 500px
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?size=large default width 1024px

Request with specify width or height

Also you can request image with specify width or height or event both
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?width=320 auto height
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?height=320 auto width
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg?width=100&height=320 fixed width and height

Request with another extension

Real file extension will be ignored, now you can access your images file with extensions that defined in config or even with no extension
http://localhost/images/photo valid by default
http://localhost/images/photo.jpg valid by default
http://localhost/images/photo.png valid by default
http://localhost/images/photo.gif valid by default

Uploaded file

We provide uploader file that make upload file very easy. First parameter is UploadedFile or Base64 Encoding, and second parameter is directory/prefix.

ImageController::upload($request->file, 'profile');

this method will be return string of generated filename str_random(34)

Model Assesor

Add model accesor to generate image link.

	 * Get ProfilePicture.
	 * @param  string  $value
	 * @return string
	public function getProfilePictureAttribute($value)
		return ImageController::generateImageUrl($value, 'small');
