Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
How would you handle an image upload in a livewire component?

In this page (see below), I'm redering the title and the content (with markdown redering). But how do I do the photo?

Describe the solution you'd like
A wire:model="photo" on an input type="file" would be ideal, but just any documented solution would work.

Describe alternatives you've considered
I've considered using javascript and axios for this, but I don't know how to pass the image URL back to the component.

Here is what I'm doing currently as a workaround:

In my app.js I'm catching the file input and sending it to a conroller via axios then catching the response and sending it via a livewire event to my livewire controller. Seems to be working.:


var photoInput = document.getElementById('photoInput');
photoInput.addEventListener('input', () => {
    var file = photoInput.files[0];
let formData = new FormData();
    formData.append('file', file);'/api/uploadPhoto',
            headers: {
                'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'
    ).then(response => {
        url =;
        livewire.emit('updatePhoto', url);



namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Storage;

class PhotoUploadController extends Controller
    public function store(Request $request)
        $file = $request->file;
        $photo = $file->store('postcard-photos', 's3', 'public');
        Storage::setVisibility($photo, 'public');
        $url = Storage::url($photo);
        return response()->json([
            'url' => $url

In Postcard.php (livewire component)

 protected $listeners = ['updatePhoto' => 'handle'];

    public function handle($url)
        $this->image = $url;

Hey @pastorryanhayden, yeah, this is a problem I would love a good solution for (out of the box with Livewire).

For the reasons you've mentioned, it's not a simple solution, but I would do basically what you've outlined above (thanks for providing the code BTW!).

For now, I'm going to close this, but I'd love to hear other ideas on how to accomplish this. So re-open it if anyone has ideas.
