Uploading image


#1
    // Upload directory for profile image
    $directory = __DIR__ . '/../../../public/category_image';

    //removed @ from #@request
    $uploadedFiles = $request->getUploadedFiles()['category_image'];

    //$avater = [];
    $avater = $request->getUploadedFiles();
    
    foreach($uploadedFiles as $uploadedFile) {

        if (@$uploadedFile->getError() === UPLOAD_ERR_OK) {
            $avater = \App\Helpers\FileUpload::moveUploadedFile($directory, $uploadedFile, ['png', 'jpeg', 'gif', 'jpg']);
        }
        else {
        
            //(new Flash)->addMessage('message', "Sorry, something went wrong from our end, please notify site owner");

            $Flash = new Flash();
            $Flash->addMessage('message', "Sorry, something went wrong from our end, please notify site owner");
            $Flash->addMessage('status', "callout-danger");
            
            return $response->withRedirect($this->router->pathFor('users')); 
        }
    }

    if( ! $avater ) {
    
        //(new Flash)->addMessage('message', "Sorry, Please make image you are uploading is either a 'png', 'jpeg', 'gif' or 'jpg'");
        $Flash = new Flash();
        $Flash->addMessage('message', "Sorry, Please make image you are uploading is either a 'png', 'jpeg' or 'gif'");
        $Flash->addMessage('status', "callout-danger");
        return $response->withRedirect($this->router->pathFor('car_description')); 
    }

    $car_description = CarDescription::create([
        'car_category_id' => $car_category_id,
        'name' => $name,
        'description' => $description,
        'year' => $year,
        'mileage' => $mileage,
        'price' => $price,
        'fuel_type' => $fuel_type,
        'transmission' => $transmission,	 
        'fuel_economy' => $fuel_economy,	 
        'air_condition' => $air_condition,	 
        'hourly_price' => $hourly_price,
        'daily_price' => $daily_price,
        'images' => json_encode($avater)
    ]);

the code above is to add an image to a description, but it stores image like as a json instead of image.jpg

{“car_images”:[{“file”:“C:\Users\rmumo\AppData\Local\Temp\phpB18.tmp”}]}

what am i doing wrong?


#2

Just remove the json_encode?

'images' => json_encode($avater)

If a car description can have multiple images then JSON makes sence though.


#3

it has multiple images upload
