Img (fit or resize)

img will dynamically resize an image and returns the URL using Intervention and Storage (public disk)

{!! img('/storage/my_picture.jpg', 100, 100, [], 'resize') !!}

will return

<img src="/storage/thumbs/resize/100x100/my_picture.jpg?1555331285" width="100" height="100">

Or using the @img Blade directive :

@img('/storage/my_picture.jpg', 250, 150, ['class' => 'fluid-image'])

will return

<img src="/storage/thumbs/fit/250x150/my_picture.png?1555331285" width="250" height="150" class="fluid-image">

You can already get only the url by using img_url helper function.

Clear cache

You can clear all resized image by using the artisan command thumbs:clear

php artisan thumbs:clear


You can translate or change translations by running php artisan vendor:publish --tag=boilerplate-media-manager-lang. After running this command, you will find translations folders into resources/lang/vendor/boilerplate-media-manager. Copy one of the language folders in the new language you want to create and all you have to do is to translate. If you want to share the language you have added, don't hesitate to make a pull request.


You can override views by running php artisan vendor:publish --tag=boilerplate-media-manager-views. You will then find the views in the resources/views/vendor/boilerplate-media-manager folder.

Package update

Laravel Boilerplate Media Manager comes with assets such as Javascript, CSS, and images. Since you typically will need to overwrite the assets every time the package is updated, you may use the --force flag :

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=boilerplate-public --force

To auto update assets each time package is updated, you can add this command to post-autoload-dump into the file composer.json at the root of your project.

    "scripts": {
        "post-autoload-dump": [
            "@php artisan vendor:publish --tag=boilerplate-public --force -q",
