how to set public permission to image uploaded on s3 aws in laravel 5.5

First set your s3 bucket configuration in your .env file as below.


In your controller file add the following code to set the public property to the uploaded image.

if (request()->hasFile(‘image_field_name_inyour_form’)) {

$folderPath = ‘profile/thumbnailfolder/’; // Set the folder path where you want to upload on s3 bucket
$imageName = time().rand(0,999999).’.’.request()->file(‘main_image’)->getClientOriginalExtension(); // Set name for the uploaded image with extension
$imageObj = request()->file(‘main_image’); // This will retrieve the uploaded images attributes. in short the file objects.
$uploadResponse = Storage::disk(‘s3’)->put($folderPath.$imageName, file_get_contents($imageObj), ‘public’); // here if you dont set the “public” attributes, when you access the file in your browser it will display access permission denied error.
$imageNameToStoreInYourDbOrCode = $imageName;
